  • Day 1 :

After check-in at the airport Olaya Herrera of Medellin in the morning, we go to Nuquí (45 minutes flight). Once in the village we take a boat trip (35 minutes) to go to the ecolodge.
Located in the biogeographic Chocó, the Eco-Lodge El Cantil was designed for nature lovers to surf and dive 18 years ago. Surrounded by the great Chocó rainforest and the immense Pacific Ocean, El Cantil will offer you an unusual scene.

In the afternoon we will take a guided tour with local guide to the waterfall of love

  • Day 2 :

According to the tide, either in the morning or in the afternoon, you can take a guided tour with a local guide by the beach or by going to the small village of the area, to the hot springs. A good opportunity to forget everything and relax in the middle of a splendid nature.

  • Day 3 :

Again, according to the tide and the vagaries of the sea, either morning or afternoon, you go on an expedition to the river called "Río Terco" (Stubborn River).
During your free morning or afternoon, we advise you to go kayaking, surfing, stand up paddling or why not, to venture to watch the marine fauna while snorkeling.

  • Day 4 :

After breakfast, you leave the ecolodge to go to Nuquí and take the return flight to the city of Medellín.

Environmental and social responsibility : Strong. By visiting this place of Chocó, you allow to preserve a territory extremely rich in biodiversity and vulnerable to the traffic of precious wood. Today, it is threatened by the desire to build a commercial port that would damage this precious ecosystem and not equal the benefits for ecological services.

In the same way, this Ecolodge seeks to improve the economic and social conditions of the local community, through conservation, protection of the environment and cultural heritage, and to develop campaigns to eliminate the academic gap.

Special recommendations :

  • Bring a hat, a long-sleeved cotton shirt, pants and of course a swimsuit.
  • Apply sunscreen and use sunglasses.
  • Remember to hydrate yourself. Bring your water bottle.
  • On the Ecolodge, it is forbidden to smoke, to consume alcohol or hallucinogenic substances.
  • The use of a mosquito repellent is recommended at sunset.

To travel more eco-friendly :

  • Accumulate your garbage during the walk and bring it back to town.
  • Turn off the fan each time you leave the room.
  • Tell the hotel not to change your towel from one night to another.
