McBean Lagoon National Park
& activities on Colombia's Providencia Island
Island offers guests the unique opportunity to experience an unspoilt
Caribbean of bygone years. Providencia is perhaps the Caribbean’s least
spoilt island retreat. Traditional Creole culture and lifestyle remain
very strong on this English speaking island.
Our luxurious 18 foot boat is the perfect cruiser
to take guests on private tours to explore Providencia and neighbouring
Santa Catalina Island, as well as a handful of beautifully picturesque
offshore Cayes. Private tours can be tailor-made to suit your
individual preferences, and may include activities as diverse as
picnics on deserted beaches, relaxing on uninhabited Cayes, snorkelling
with turtles or fishing / harpooning fish to eat for a barbecue lunch
on the beach.
The calm, crystalline
waters and small offshore islands of the nearby McBean Lagoon National
Marine Park are a delight to explore by kayak. Ask us for some
snorkelling equipment as turtles are frequently to be seen whilst
snorkelling in the National Park.
Other activities that may
be arranged include treks through the islands verdant jungle, scuba diving the world’s third
longest barrier reef, birdwatching, golf buggy/moped hire to explore
the island’s beaches and deep sea fishing. Every morning a
complimentary shuttle service does a circuit of the island taking our
guests to the beach of their preference.
In addition to these
activities, most guests choose to spend a considerable amount of time
simply relaxing in the spectacular natural surroundings of our deck,
swimming or snorkelling in the calm sea.
