This is one of the most humid areas on the planet, as well as one of the most biodiverse. Those who want to enjoy a respite from the pace of the modern world will find ideal spots hidden in small bays and fine-sanded beaches surrounded by tropical vegetation at its very best.

The quiet beaches, lined by the Chocó virgin jungle and the Pacific Ocean, are one of the area’s main attractions. All the beaches are crossed by streams of clear water that contribute to the perfect atmosphere for relaxing far from the crowds and shopping of mass beach destinations.The marine fauna and flora of the Pacific constitute a universe that combines wealth and diversity in an exceptional way.

Rushing rivers flow into the ocean in the southern part of Colombia’s Pacific Rainforest Coast. There are quite a number of villages where fishermen live near mangrove swamps and work to the rhythm of marimbas and drums.

There are large beaches between the port of Buenaventura and Bahía Málaga, among them, Juanchaco and Ladrilleros, both with a good tourist infrastructure.
