Taganga—a little fishing village on the Caribbean coast—boasts a charming beach with lots of attractions. Providencia and San Andres are excellent islands for snorkeling and scuba diving. In Providencia, scuba divers can explore the world’s third largest barrier reef. Playa Blanca is a beautiful long white sand beach with crystal clear, turquoise coloured water and lots of activities.

The Carribean coast is great for visiting all year round because of the climate. However, it's better to avoid hurricane season (from September till December). The peak season lasts from late December till the end of April. These are the busiest months to visit in terms of the crowds, and you need to be prepared for higher hotel rates and flight prices.
