These migratory animals travel approximately 8,000 kilometers from Antarctica to reach Colombia and then, when the coldest season at the Poles has ended, they return to the northern waters to feed in the polar summer. The arrival of the whales to Colombia marks the beginning of an important season.

We will be staying on Guachalito Beach in beachfront cabins that allow a feeling of disconnection between the jungle and the sea, in a safe location, with personalized attention and a gastronomic experience in each dish thanks to our focus on local cuisine.

On this trip you will be able to take a guided walk to the Cascada del Amor and the Termales district where in addition to bathing in hot springs you will be able to see the quiet but dirty life of the Pacific towns, you will also visit the Joví River on a boat ride and you will be able to Go on a Humpback Whale watching trip.

This is why whales migrate along the Colombian Pacific coast, from Buenaventura to Panama, looking for warm tropical waters. On that route, they first pass through Buenaventura, Juanchaco and brickyards, then they go up to Nuquí. They continue the ascent to the Ensenada de Utría, the town of El Valle, Bahía Solano, until they reach the Panama Isthmus.

Explore one of the most popular nature destinations in Colombia: Nuquí! On the shores of the Pacific, beautiful beaches, hot springs, waterfalls in the middle of the tropical jungle, exquisite cuisine and friendly people.
