El Valle is a little town nestled on the Pacific Coast. The inhabitants are chill and live from day to day. Therefore, it’s not always straightforward to organize things. The transportation cost is quite high for the country, and have an impact on the price of the activities.
El Valle is the kind of place that knocks you out and makes you unable to leave afterward. On both sides, there are two endless black beaches – Playa Almejal and Playa Larga – that lead you to different highlights like the waterfall El Tigre or the National Park Utria. Allow you at least 4 days.
It’s also an excellent spot for surfing and fishing.
How to arrive in El Valle?
- There are flights from Medellin to Bahia Solano – a bigger city that is not appealing to me. Then you take a 30-min tuk-tuk | 1 hour
- Twice a week, boats leave from Nuqui to El Valle | 1 hour
- Once a week, a 7-hour speed boat and a 24-h cargo ship go from Buenaventura
Note: There is no ATM. Bring a lot of cash with you.
