Kaiaked from Deep Blue hotel, 15 mins each way. After 10 amazing dives in Providencia, the snorkel part was plain vanilla…the view however…a short 5 mins hike up the island and the view is simply breathtaking!

I don’t like big crowds but still liked the trip. The views over to providencia are beautiful. There is some good snorkelling too, and we saw a cute sea turtle.

Very lovely, take a small boat from deep blue hotel to the small rock. You can climb one min to the top for lovely pics and snorkel the shallow reef area. There is no beach but a large dock.

Crab key is a must when visiting providencia. The views on top of the mountain are spectacular. The water is warm and so so clear. The staff are very friendly and happy to help. You definitely need to book a boat from a local fisherman...More

This was a stop on a boat tour around the island. It's a nice little Colombian National Park with a small admission fee. The snorkeling was nice. Be sure to look under the dock and climb to the top of the hill.

You can either catch a boat from the The Deep Blue resort or one can kayak to island, however it looked challenging to kayak due to currents at some points
