Explore the awe-inspiring beauty of Colombia's coastal hideaway.

Offering superb bird watching and a chance to see whales breaching offshore, this is a corner of Colombia that begs to be discovered.

For a true escape in a remote and lesser visited part of Colombia, Nuquí and the Chocó coast present a beautiful, sustainable experience. This vast, wilderness of raw natural beauty boasts deserted beaches, dense jungle, wildlife-rich mangroves, and a sleepy, backwater atmosphere.

Getting to Nuquí may require some effort, but the journey is well worth it. The most common way to reach this coastal town is by flying from Medellín to Quibdó, followed by a scenic boat ride along the coast.

Once you arrive in Nuquí, you'll be greeted by a warm and friendly community that takes pride in sharing their natural wonders with visitors. The locals are known for their hospitality and will gladly assist you in making the most of your stay.

One of the highlights of Nuquí is its impressive beaches. Playa Guachalito and Playa Termales are renowned for their grey sand and whale watching opportunities, offering a peaceful setting to relax, sunbathe, and swim in the warm ocean waters. For the adventurous soul, there are activities like surfing, snorkelling, and scuba diving. The region is known for its excellent waves, attracting surf enthusiasts from around the world. Dive into the aquamarine waters to discover brightly coloured coral reefs and swim alongside tropical fish.

Beyond the beaches, Nuquí boasts a massively biodiverse, but extremely fragile, ecosystem complete with thermal pools, and waterfalls. Go through Nuqui, to the nearby Guachalito, Utria Park, and Thermales to learn about the region's distinctive bio-network.

A visit to Nuquí is an opportunity to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of city life and immerse yourself in the beauty of Colombia's Pacific coast.
