“La Regatta Restaurant is an exotic mix of cultures, religions, languages, colors, and flavors. Its menu has a wide variety of dishes that reflect the ethnic and cultural richness of the island, rescuing native Islander flavors with a touch of Colombian Caribbean cuisine, thus achieving exquisite and very particular dishes that beautifully complement their particular style. Our favorite for lunch or dinner on the island. This place is built on the sea, in the bay of San Andrés, with a beautiful seascape, with exquisite cuisine and very friendly service.”

Scenic Viewpoint
“Preferencias Favoritos Chat Buscar El hoyo soplador es un sitio del extremo sur de San Andrés, Colombia donde se produce un fenómeno natural que semeja una fuente. El atractivo es un chorro de aire y agua muy fuerte que brota de un agujero, a algunos metros del mar, y que es producido por las olas que chocan contra una serie de túneles subterráneos en los arrecifes coralinos.  Hay un lugar para comprar artesanías locales la cual pueden ayudar a los pequeños artesanos. También encontrarás tiendas para refrescarte y baños. Te recomiendo ser muy cordial con las personas nativas ”
