Medellin vs. San Andres: Which is Better?

If your next vacation destination is going to be in Colombia, then you’re in for a treat. However, the hardest part is choosing where to go, as there are so many great options: Bogota, Bucaramanga, Santa Marta, and so much more. Among the top choices, however, is a Medellin Vacation Package and a San Andres vacation package. Although both are great options, each city offers a different experience. That’s why we’re going to compare the two destinations.



Table of Contents


Medellin is a big city, with about 4 million inhabitants. This means that you get all of the benefits of a big city, which includes diversity. Not only are there different cultures here, but a large variety of food (including authentic, as well as many international restaurants), and more places to see. The great thing about Medellin is that although it’s a big city, it’s also surrounded by the mountains. This means one day you can go downtown, the next day you can go on a hike, and that night you can enjoy the nightlife. We should also point out that Medellin is known for it’s amazing weather, which is a big plus.


San Andres

San Andres is a very small island located in the Caribbean. In fact, it’s only 7.8 miles in length and 1.9 miles in width. For that reason, it’s very different from a big city, but it’s a great place to relax. When you’re here, you’ll likely spend the day at the beach scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, or just drinking a coco loco. Since this is an island, you can expect to not only eat traditional food, but a lot of fresh seafood as well. Not only are the resorts beautiful, but the islanders are super friendly.

If you’re having a hard time choosing between a Medellin Vacation Package and a San Andres vacation package, then you may want to consider choosing both! If you need help organizing your trip, contact us at Arik Travel.
