San Andres Island, Columbia



To home page Back to Panama Canal beginning.

The pride and joy of this island is the 'blowhole'. It was created by a series of subterranian tunnels in the coral reefs that come together near the sea. At high tide and with a large wave the water blows thru the hole.

The other historic site here is the Baptist Church which was built in 1846 with pinewood brought from Alabama. It's fairly plain on the inside. Because the English first settled here, English is their primary language.

This small island is only 8 mi. x 2 mi. It's very green with lots of palm trees and flowers, and a white sandy beach on one side. Emeralds are mined here, and if you can find any or want to stay, you can buy a condo for $20,000.
