Get in[edit]

The pacific coast of Choco is not that easy to access as there is no road.

There are flights from Medellin and Quibdo to Nuqui or Bahia Solano.

At the time of writing (May 2015) Satena stopped flights to Nuqui to improve the landing line, but it is unknown when they will start again the flights. However they still fly to Bahia Solano.

There are also few charters companies flying to Nuqui and Bahia Solano. In Medellin, ask for the office Nautilus next to the airport for the flights to Nuqui. There are charters flights almost every day. (cost from Medellin to Nuqui = 220 000pesos, to Bahia Solano from 240 000 pesos one way).

Get around[edit]

- Nuqui - El Valle - Bahia Solano

There are speedboats twice a week between Nuqui and El Valle, cost = 60 000pesos for one hour, every monday and friday (May 2015). Between El Valle and Bahia Solano there is a paved road, there are regular tuk tuk or shared taxi for about 12 000 pesos, or just walk 3,5h!


- Nuqui to Arusi - Termales - Guachalito - Jovi - Coqui

There are boats everyday from Nuqui to the other cities and vice versa. Cost is about 25 000pesos. Between each village of Arusi - Termales - Guachalito - Jovi - Coqui you can walk on the beach (very scenic landscape) during low tide (ask locals about the time). It takes between 45min and two hours between each village (see map https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xpf1/v/t34.0-12/10985403_915641265164731_595578779232760637_n.jpg?oh=e68aa79f86ba3f4d77e70c25938f5543&oe=55555183&__gda__=1431659132_31277a9eca83e59449f472298d1dfff5).

In each of the small villages (fishermen communities) such as Coqui, jovi, Guachalito, and Termales, you can find accomodation in one of the local house.

Usually they charge full price at maximum 100 000 pesos for accomodation + 3meals. But you can negociate if you bring some food with you for breakfast for example, and as well if it is low season. (down to 40 000pp with two meals).


Recommended places:

- Termales : Paulino and Gabriela

- Guachalito : Diego

- Coqui : Señora Cruz (very sweet lady) or Fausto (more expensive and higher standard)

- El Valle : Posada Villa Maga (pepe and carmen are very interesting and talkative couple, with beautiful house and garden)
