How to get to San Andres.
From US: As we are departing on a Sunday, the best way to get to San Andres is to fly in to Cartagena the day before, on Saturday. There are international flights to Cartagena from Miami, New York and Panama arriving in the early afternoon.
Cartagena de Indias is a UNESCO world heritage site and is a port city on Colombia’s Caribbean coast. By the sea is the walled Old Town, founded in the 16th century, with squares, cobblestone streets and colorful colonial buildings.
