Capurgana is a small village forgotten by time and tourists. Here you can alternate walks in the jungle, rolls on the hot sand, chases after colorful fish, and naps in a hammock with your mouth open.
To get to this little piece of paradise near the border with Panama, you’ll have to take the boat! And yes, there are no official roads to cross the Darien Gap yet.
Once there, you can easily organize your activities on the go and some of them can be done without the help of a guide. Follow the coastline to the natural swimming pool La Coquerita or head out on an underwater exploration along El Aguacate beach. Then, don’t forget to visit Sapzurro through the jungle. The path is quite well indicated.
If you want to visit the Kunas on the San Blas Islands, enjoy the paradisiacal beach of Soledad, or observe the giant turtles (if it’s the season) you will need to go through a local agency.
