The true nature
1 300km long, the Colombian Pacific coast is very rich: this destination is perfect for nature and ecotourism lovers, with its preserved natural parks and reserves. The Choco is the ideal starting point to enjoy wild beaches and hike in the heart of the jungle whilst observing the tropical fauna and flora. There, the warm waters of Nuqui and Bahia Solano attract somptuous humpback whales who come to reproduce every year between June and October. Diving lovers cannot miss an excursion to explore the seabed of Gorgona and Malpelo, that features corals, colorful tropical fishes, sea turtles … This region is also great for surfing, sport fishing, or bird watching.
Attached to the department of Cauca, the Gorgona island makes a 25km2 natural park, in the middle of the Pacific ocean, around 35kms from the coasts fo Colombia.
Just like Coiba in Panama, the island was used as a penitentiary until the 1980s.
Today, thanks to preserved land and sea nature, Gorgona is a renowned destination for ecotourism and scuba diving.
The national park also welcomes humpback whales every year from July to October. There, we offer nature or diving trips to explore the rich local ecosystem.
