Detailed Itinerary

Vive Gorgona

Day 1

Guapi – Gorgona island

We will meet at the airport and transfer by tuktuk or motorcycle taxi (7mn) to the Muelle, where you will take a boat to Gorgona Island (1h30). Once in Gorgona, the team will give you a briefing about the island. They will tell you about its fauna, flora, and the activities you can do. They will also explain the basic rules that the N.N.P. imposes such as no smoking, no consuming alcohol, etc.). After lunch, enjoy a 25-minute walk to learn more about the history of the island and its penitentiary past, and how it got transformed since the closing of the prison. Here, nature retook its rights over the ruined buildings and the abundant fauna grows on the walls where monkeys play together. Return to the hotel.

Day 2

Whales watching

After breakfast, leave for a boat trip in search of a wonderful mammal, the humpback whale, which travels each year along the South American coasts from Chile to the north, in search of calmer waters for its baby. The still and deep waters of the Colombian Pacific ocean attract the animal, which makes it the perfect place to go whale watching (from July to October). Have lunch at the hotel. Then, take a short boat ride to Palmeras (10mn) and a 5km walk to Palmeras Beach, during which you can appreciate the exceptional natural environment of the island. Then, have dinner and spend the night at the hotel.
