The San Pacho Festival

 

For 20 days starting every September 20th, the capital of Chocó is full of joy thanks to the celebrations in honor of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron of Quibdó locally known as San Pacho. During this time the city transforms into a stage filled with flags, float parades, and people in costume.

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS AND ACTIVITIES

 

There is no shortage of activities in Chocó. A few ideas: glide through mangroves in a canoe, visit waterfalls by the sea, and bathe in hot springs.
