When to go
The Pacific coast, particularly the Chocó department, stays so lush and green for good reason: it’s one of the wettest places on the planet, with up to 400 inches of annual rainfall. Be prepared to get wet, no matter what time of year you’re there. The first whales begin arriving off the coast in mid-July, and stay until late fall.
What to do
- Whale’s watching tours
- The pristine beaches of Nuquí and Bahía Solano in the Chocó
- Botanical gardens
Isla Gorgona National natural Park
Estacion Septiembre (turtle nesting sanctuary and research station in Cuevita beach)
About Pacific Coast
There are few destinations as ruggedly spectacular as the Pacific Region of Colombia. This is where the jungle not so much meets the sea as comes crashing headlong into it. It is a place where waterfalls pour out of forest-covered bluffs onto spectacular gray-sand beaches, thermal pools lie hidden in dense jungle and tiny indigenous villages cling to the edge of wild rivers. It is where whales and dolphins frolic so close to shore you can admire them from your hammock and majestic sea turtles come even closer.
