The Seaflower Biosphere Reserve is situated at the Archipelago of San Andrés, Providencia and Santa Catalina, at the southwestern Caribbean, off the East coast of Nicaragua, halfway between Colombia and Jamaica. As a marine biosphere reserve, it covers approximately 10% of the Caribbean sea, with three main islands, surrounded by coastal mangroves swamps and highly intact and productive associated coral reef ecosystems.
The old Providence barrier reef alone is 32 km long and covers an area of 255 Km2 making it one of the largest coral reefs in America. It is identified as a major site of coral and fish diversity and is considered a biodiversity “hotspot” with 27 Km2 and an official population of 70.657 (2002), over half the population in San Andrés Island lives in the urban commercial center, on the coastal flats at the extreme north end of the island. The islands of old Providence and Santa Catalina, with 19 Km2 formed by an extinct Miocene volcano, with an unusually well preserved tropical forest, have far less population (4.180).
