Colombia’s Secret Pacific Paradise


Colombias Secret Pacific Paradise

Colombia is roughly twice the size of France, so it comes as no surprise that you can still find a tropical paradise almost nearly untouched by development. The Chocó Department, bordering Panama to the south and stretching from the Caribbean Sea down to the Pacific coastline, is one of Colombia’s most remote but perhaps one of its most beautiful regions.

As Max from GoNomad found out during his recent trip to the region, it’s not easy to get to — 20-seat turboprop plane, potholed streets, treacherous boat voyages — but once you’re there you quickly realize it’s all worth it. For nature-lovers there is turtle hatchling expeditions, humpback whale watching, and jungle hikes to hidden waterfalls and glistening pools. For city excitement . . . well, you better stay back in Medellin or Bogotá.
