Situated on Colombia’s Pacific Coast and cloaked in dense jungle, El Chocó is one of the few mega-diverse hotspots on the planet. It is a magnificent place for those who enjoy getting truly offbeat. Here, there is virtually no road transportation. All access is by boat or by light aircraft.
As well as the indigenous communities, local traditions and remarkable flora and fauna (including humpback whale watching in June), most journey to El Chocó for the beaches, ranging from the black-sand Playa Guachalito near Nuqui, to the tiny, untouched strips along the coast of the Utria National Park. This is the ultimate Robinson Crusoe destination for those who don’t mind forsaking a few home comforts.
A luxury trip to El Chocó will showcase the rawest and realest sides of Colombia. We work with one just one property in the region – Yurbata Lodge. Our guides here are second to none, and will introduce you to some incredible fauna and flora, as well as plenty of local characters.
