Bogota’s fantastic street arts in La Candelaria district

Bogota is probably one of the best cities for you if you are a street art fan like me. Obviously from the minute you get to Bogota, you will see it is a city that has incredible street art. Seeing the graffiti in Candelaria district was the highlight of my trip to Bogota as it’s a great way of familiarising yourself with the Candelaria.

Travel with me to the beautiful Isla San Andrés. 跟着我游玩加勒比海小岛 — 圣安德烈斯岛 Day 1

Why San Andrés?

Because it’s easily reachable from Colombia mainland. Isla San Andrés has a long history, it used to be colonized by England, so in the island locals can speak English, with a sort of Jamaican accent. In the street or buses, they like to play kind of Reggae music, compare to the Salsa music played in Colombian mainland, I like Reggae better, I must say.

There has been a long territorial disputes of the island between Nicaragua and Colombia. In the map, it’s located only 150 km from Nicaragua. In the end, it belongs to Colombia. So from major Colombian cities: Bogota and Medellin. Colombia has one of the best low budget airlines within and outside the country. So if you ever go to Colombia, San Andrés can be your easiest and cheapest Caribbean experience.

Also because it’s not as touristy as other bigger island in the Caribbean sea, so you can still find a deserted beach easily. Price is slightly more expensive than Colombia mainland but still rather cheap and nice food.

首先来说说为什么选择去圣安德烈斯岛呢?

因为非常容易过去,从哥伦比亚大陆飞过去菜不到3小时,而且哥伦比亚有世界上数一数二的国内廉价航空网络,我从波哥大飞去圣安德烈斯岛大概花了不到200人民币。所以如果只是在南美旅行,顺便走到哥伦比亚的话,可以抽出几天逃离城市飞去这个小岛放松度假,从麦德林和波哥大飞过去每天都有不同班机。

说到圣安德烈斯岛,其实也很有历史,他曾经被英国殖民,所以现在一些岛民还是说英语,而且略带一种牙买加式的口音,街上公车上放的音乐也是偏雷鬼。跟哥伦比亚大陆满大街的拉丁音乐相比,其实我倒更喜欢这里的。在地图上看,其实圣安德烈斯岛离哥伦比亚挺远了,相反他离尼加拉瓜到挺近的,只有150千米,其实尼加拉瓜和哥伦比亚就这个美丽的小孩也存在很长一段时间的领土纷争不过最终哥伦比亚赢了,所以每天非常多的哥伦比亚游客来这里旅行。

但是由于这个岛真的特别小,我开着高尔夫车大概4小时就能环岛了……但是小有小的好,除了哥伦比亚的游客,其他游客很少。所以在这么小的岛上也可以轻松找到只属于你自己的海滩,不亦乐乎。 Continue reading Travel with me to the beautiful Isla San Andrés. 跟着我游玩加勒比海小岛 — 圣安德烈斯岛 Day 1
