Located at a 1h30 walk from Capurgana, Sapzurro is the last Colombian village before the border with Panama, on the Western Caribean Coast. Stroll along the white sandy beaches and look with envy at the delicious coconuts hanging above your head. Search for the ice-cream seller instead of thinking about climbing palm trees.
The sportiest activity is to climb (and descend) the 200 steps that lead to La Miel, Panama’s beach paradise. Don’t forget to buy a bottle of Chilean wine at the duty-free shop, to enjoy it while watching the stars from Sapzurro beach.
Take a walk to Playa Tiburon before heading back to Capurgana. The beach is sublime and there are very good spots for snorkeling. Lunch there a tasty “arroz con coco” with fresh fish between two submarine sessions.
