One of the country’s most gorgeous beaches is actually on this coast: Guachalito Beach consists of unique black sand and is framed by jungle and waterfalls. While the jungles of the Choco region are also not to be missed, especially for those who love biodiversity.
UTRIA NATIONAL PARK
Composed of beaches, jungles and mangroves, this park is a must see when on the Pacific Coast of Colombia. Mountainous and wet (it gets one of the highest rainfall totals in the world) the park also is a great place to get up close to local culture as there are a number of small, very traditional fishing villages intersecting with the park.
Once a prison island, this has become a paradise for those seeking a true remote, isolated, jungle experience. A hub of eco-tourism, the island has a variety of wildlife to include monkeys, sloths, and then head out to the ocean to whale watch for the mighty humpbacks, even spot great white sharks as well as hammerheads.
The Pacific Coast offers plenty of excitement for surfers. El Valle is one of the more popular destinations when it comes to catching some waves. The town itself has a very traditional vibe with dirt roads and humble buildings, most come here for the sea and of course the surfing.
