OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN THE PROVIDENCIA ISLANDS

WALK THE 'PEAK'

In the morning you will walk up to the highest point on the island known as the “Peak”. This is 360 m above sea level and from the top you have a 360 degree views of the islands and the multi-coloured waters below. The majority of the freshwater found on the island is produced here from various sources.

BOAT TOUR

This full day excursion by boat stops to see the Cabeza de Morgan, a huge rock that resembles a human head, the Puente de Los Enamorados, a colourful bridge that crosses the sea and links Providencia Island with Santa Catalina. You will also visit the McBean Lagoon National Park which contains Crab Bay

MCBEAN NATIONAL PARK
