The Big Pond Lagoon, also known as Lake La Loma, is in the center of San Andres, where tourists can ride horses. This body of fresh water and its surroundings are inhabited by alligators, iguanas, turtles and birds, among other animals. This is a good place for walking and biking.
Laguna Big Pond, although most locals are friendly and talktative, be on the lookout for overly friendly people specially if they don’t get off your case. If you like nature and don’t mind mosquitoes you will find the Big Pond a great place to spend some time. Although its name implies otherwise the the ponde itself is not that big and can be sourrounded on foot in about 15 minutes.
One of the main atractions of the ponde is the little creatures that live in it like caymans (Cocodrilus Fuscus) , the Swanka turtles and the hundred of birds that visit the pond everyday to drink water. In the entrance of the pond there’s a lady who will try to charge you $10.000 COP to get in the pond, arguing that his family owns all the terrains where the pond is; She is easily thrown off when you agree to pay her only if she gives you a receipt!
Also be on the lookout for the friendly guides around the pond, if you do want a guide make sure you agree to a price before the start of the walk, otherwise you will be most certainly overcharged.
