Traveling and living in Colombia: Whale watching on the Pacific Coast

Traveling and Living in Colombia: Visits to the Pacific Ocean Coast

If you are thinking of visiting the Pacific Ocean coast of Colombia, you know that there are various opportunities that offer opportunities for salt water fishing, whale watching and beach holidays. Here are three:

Bahia Solano , a tourist town in the northern sector of the Pacific Coast. Some great sport fishing tournaments are held here every year. There are nature walks and diving tours available, as well as a number of basic but acceptable hotels. Two large luxury hotels also offer accommodation here. The city has one of the few airports located on the Pacific Coast and the only one in the northern coastal sector. One of Colombia's largest and most beautiful national parks, Utria Nacional Parque , is located but a 20-minute boat ride away. The park, which includes a generous section of coastline and Pacific Ocean waters, also houses one of the largest concentrations of tropical wildlife and marine life for this section of South America outside Brazil. Often, marine scientists gather in the area to study the amazing conglomerate of aquatic life found here.

Nuqui , a county seat county is another Pacific coastal city that boasts airport service. There are also a host of good hotels offering full amenities, food and regional tours. Nuqui’s central Colombian location is well-suited to watching the migration of Humpback whales during the spring. During late summer through early fall, migration returns as the whales with their newborn calves head south to head to the waters of the Southern Pacific Ocean off the coast of Chile and Antarctica. Freshwater swimsuits, seals and aquatic life abound as are natural thermal baths and protected environmental zones featuring wildlife that you can get very close and personal with. Just be careful. Yes, they bite. If you have an interest in visiting Indigenous people Emberá Indian villages, there are a number of them located near Nuqui, for which tours or visits can be arranged.

Buenaventura , a sometimes unacceptably dangerous environment, this unusual, bare city is the largest on Colombia's Pacific coast and is run by the city of Cali and the country's central coffee region. There is an engine launch service on most of the Colombian coast from here and a handful of passable beaches like those located within Ladrilleros and Juanchaco . A large military and naval base is also at bay here. The main market here features a stunning variety of not only marine tariffs but also the wild food of the jungle. Armadillo, peccary, three-legged loot, sea turtle and iguana can be bought and eaten at second-floor food stalls. Due to population controls and regional sea harvesting regulations, sometimes creatures that would be illegal to harvest elsewhere and elsewhere are harvested and available here.

Traveling and living in Colombia

From watching Humpback whales to sport fishing and therapeutic thermal baths, you can enjoy a wide range of natural activities and pursuits along the Columbia Pacific coast. Did I mention that you will find the prices as a great relief? You will hold more in your portfolio because of the region's economy when compared to other countries such as Panama or Costa Rica. True, there are trade cuts and services available in both of these countries is certainly first rate, but a visit to Colombia and the Pacific coast can be an extremely enjoyable one at affordable prices.
