ISLA PROVIDENCIA, COLUMBIA
Last Up-dated May 2006
Isla Providencia is an Island paradise and we stayed for quite a few days. We took trips around the island, and I believe that it has since been hit by a 2005 hurricane and was heavily damaged. While there, the Colubmian government tried to convince us that we needed Typhoid shots to leave the island, since that was the only one we did not have. We emailed back to family to get more information, then decided what the heck. We went up to the little hospital and after seeing the state of the place, decided we would take our chances without the Typhoid shots and see if they came after us! They did not! We bought wonderful watercolor paintings here (small but not cheap) that hang on our kitchen wall in Virginia now.
