Resort Description

San Andres Divers Hostel is a little-known gem offering coral reef diving and pristine visibility throughout the year. 

The dive center and hostel are located on the same site, meaning total convenience for all who choose to dive with San Andres Divers. The base is just across from the ocean, so all rooms  - and the pool - boast great ocean views. Located on the south or the island, this fresh and clean hostel champions colorful local artwork that can be found in the rooms and around the building's exterior. 

Double, single and shared dorm rooms are available. Even those on a strict budget will have somewhere clean, cool and calm to rest. Every room comes with air conditioning, LED TVs and access to shared bathrooms with hot and cold water showers. Breakfast is included, so make sure you fill up on eggs, seasonal fruits, toast and coffee... you'll need the energy when you're out diving!

The hostel offers shared kitchen facilities if you wish to cook for yourself come lunch or dinner time. However, there are also a number of restaurants within easy walking distance. 


Explore diving around the San Andres Divers Hostel

What to see

The fantastic coral reefs around the islands make an ideal home for a variety of species. Stingrays and sharks peruse the region in addition to these colorful reef fish. Hawksbill sea turtles come here to nest, making it a popular spot to watch the babies hatch out into the sea.

Further out, dolphins and whales pass by. Sometimes you can swim or dive with these incredible creatures.
