Insular Region Serve time on a desert island

Article - July 29, 2011
Various groups of small coastal islands in both the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea make up the Insular Region
COLOMBIA’S ISLANDS APPEAL TO TOURISTS LOOKING FOR SOMEWHERE UNIQUE
On the Pacific side, Malpelo Island attracts swarms of hammerhead and silky sharks, making it a highly popular sharkdiving expedition location. In 2006 it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and visitors to the island need to obtain a written permit from the Colombian Ministry of Environment.

COLOMBIA’S ISLANDS ARE HOME TO BREATHTAKING COVES AND OUTSANDING NATURE IN TWO SEAS
In 1985 the Colombian state acquired the rights to Gorgona Island, also in the Pacific Ocean, and it was established as a National Park. A former prison island, in a similar vein to Alcatraz Island, and famed for its venomous snakes, it has since been developed as an ecotourism center and whale-watching hotspot. Trips to the old prison can be arranged, as well as a host of other activities.
On the Caribbean side, the archipelago of San Andres, Providencia and Santa Catalina consists of two island groups and eight outlying banks and reefs. The main island of San Andres and Providencia is highly influenced by English, French and African heritage. In addition to its amazing beaches, the island is surrounded to the northwest by a small coral reef and several keys that are home to varied fauna and flora that attract tourist in droves.
