Nuqui offers Colombia’s best waves for the surfer. The best spots are Playa Terquito, Terco, Rio Termales, Pico de Loro, Pela Pela, El Chorro, Playa Brava and Juan Tornillo.
All the rivers around Nuquí are good for this sport. The Joví and the Coquí are the best known of them. You can also take a locally-made wooden champa or a chingo, large enough for one or two people.
There are strong currents in the Pacific, and PADI certification is a must.
Any of the waterfalls in the area are good for this.
Interpretation walks
Local people explain animals and plants along the paths and how they use them in the community.
