The Pacific coast of Colombia is unique, savage, humid, and off the beaten path. There is no road to access to the Pacific Coast, and there is almost no tourism infrastructure. You will travel by sea or take small planes, and you should allow plenty of time for the different transports.
Wander in the different national parks, look for unusual birds, chill on black-sand beaches, surf on big waves, and observe the humpback whales from July to Mid-September.
Some of these places are hidden paradises. And yes, it’s safe.
From Medellin, you can fly to Bahia Solano and explore El Valle (Waterfalls, endless beautiful beaches, and the National Park of Utria) or Nuqui and stay in peaceful ecolodges on Guachalito beach.
Juanchaco, Ladrilleros, Bahia Malaga, and La Barra are other options for travelers visiting Cali. Take a 3-h bus to Buenaventura then a 1-h speedboat. It’s the cheapest way to get a taste of the Pacific Coast. Then, you can continue the adventure on a cargo ship and head to Bahia Solano.
