 San Andres

Colombia, Caribbean

English (Translate this text in English): San Andres is the capital of the Colombian department of San Andrés y Providencia and part of its Caribbean region.

Located only 220 km east of Nicaragua, the San Andrés y Providencia archipelago belongs to Colombia due to a treaty (Esguerra-Bárcenas) signed on March 28, 1928, that states that Colombia recognizes Nicaraguan sovereignty of the Mangle Islands and Costa Mosquitia, while Nicaragua recognizes Colombian sovereignty over San Andrés Island, Providencia Island, Santa Catalina Island, plus small islands and keys around the archipelago.

Many historians agree that the archipelago was discovered in 1629 by Puritans and Jamaican woodcutters and was then conquered by the Spanish in the second half of the 17th century. For 200 years control of the islands changed hands several times, falling under the domain of Spain, Britain, France, and The Netherlands at various times, until Colombia took them. The islands were visited often by pirates, among them the English pirate Henry Morgan who used them as a base of operations and, according to legend, as a hideaway for his much acclaimed treasure.
