Playa Charquitos (Puddle beach), San Andres, Colombia

Playa Charquitos, also known as Puddle Beach, is located in the southeast of the island. It is a white sandy beach that extends even farther depending on the tide. Because of the security that it offers to swim and wade due to its shallowness, small waves and warm water, it is ideal for children and their parents, as well as for the elderly. It is a deserted beach, where only nature and the refreshing sea surround you.
