An overnight to Haines Cay

January 20th, 2013, Haines Cay, Colombia

For a change of scene, we pulled up anchor off Nene’s Marina near San Andrés town and motored out to Haines Cay, a very popular tourist and local destination. It was Sunday afternoon and the place was hopping with local boats and tour boats. Pete and Tony took the dinghy ashore and checked out the two little islands — sampled a beer at each.

Here's the first island.

The islands aren’t far from San Andrés; people come across in small boats and on jetskis.

At peak times, the islands and the spit are crowded with visitors.

But, in the evening everyone goes home. Then we were the only boat, and it was quiet and beautiful. Pete got up early to watch and take photos of the sunrise.
