Pacific Coast | Colombia

Pacific beach, Nuqui

With its wild jungle cliffs, dark sandy beaches and small ecolodges right on the beach, the Colombian Pacific coast is an off-the-beaten track destination compared to the more luxurious and developed Caribbean coastline.

Whale spotting, Bahia Solano

If you consider yourself an adventurer seeking pristine nature, or want to become one, a visit to one of the ecolodges we offer along this beautiful coastlineshould not be missed.

Between somewhere mid June through October, an estimated 800-1100 humpback whales migrate from cold southern waters to the warmer Colombian Pacific coast. No matter whether you choose Nuquí, Bahía Solano, Isla Gorgona or Bahía Malaga: all four consist of a mating and birthing area for this breathtaking animal. Did you know a baby whale (calve) needs between 75 and 150 liters of his mother’s milk per day? That way, he gains weight quickly before starting the journey back to the cold waters of Patagonia and Antarctica.

Besides whale watching and walking along the windswept beaches, the region also offers splendid hiking trails, abundant wildlife, museums, abandoned prisons and pristine rainforest. Add to this the local seafood, coconut sweets and laidback attitude of the locals, and you know why a visit to Colombia’s Pacific Coast cannot be missed.
