You are here
The richness of Chocó is overwhelming for those who enjoy environments undisturbed by humans. This is the only department in Colombia lapped by the waves of two oceans, the Pacific and the Caribbean Rivers abound and there are three National Parks: Utría, Los Katíos and Tatamá. Choco, founded in 1947, is known for its beaches, mostly of dark sand.
What to do in Chocó
The jungle that crowds the beach and seems to want to colonize the sea is the backdrop of many experiences in Chocó, where it is necessary to have sufficient time for bird watching, seeing humpback whales from Antarctica frolic in the water, walk on the beach, swim in waterfalls that flow near the waves ...
Nature always offers a choice for visitors who come to Chocó to disconnect themselves from the stress of civilization. It may be a diving session to swim alongside colourful fish in Capurganà in the Caribbean, a few hours surfing on Nuquí’s big waves, or listening to the sound of 40 ton whales jumping out and falling back into the water.
ACTIVITIES YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS
In Choco you can navigate in canoes gliding through mangroves, visit waterfalls by the sea and bathe in hot springs. There is no shortage of programs in this department.
