The rainiest place on earth can be found in Choco, Colombia, where it on average rains more than 10 times the amount in any other normal place in the world.

El Chocó is a wild and barren region of Colombia and a territory invaluable for its biodiversity. Because of its geographical location as the conduit between South and Central America, it is home to a vast array of animal and plant species from both subcontinents. Its geographic variety ranges from high Paramos (alpine moorlands) ecosystems in the Andean mountains to vast expanses of exuberant jungle. A large number of streams and rivers run from east to west, where they empty into the Pacific Ocean.
Beyond its rich fauna and flora, El Chocó is home to Colonos (descendants of white sugar planters), Afro-Colombians and indigenous people.

Travelers who visit El Chocó have the privilege of experiencing a place of magnificent natural beauty that has remained largely isolated through the years.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Bring fresh clothes preferably quick-drying or similar, long sleeves and long trousers for sun protection. Please note that the weather is extremely wet, nothing dries easily.
Bring a soft fleece or something to wear at night, as it can be slightly cool (19C° or 66,2 F°). Please bring a hat, sun cream, a poncho or something waterproof for the rain, and also an extra pair of shoes for the water because it often rains a lot in Choco.

ITINERARY

City of origin – Bahía Solano – El Valle (Chocó).

Early in the morning we will meet at the cargo area of the Olaya Herrera Airport in Medellin, from where we will take a one-and-a half-hour flight to Bahía Solano (Chocó). Upon arrival we will take a short walk from the airstrip to the village of Bahía Solano and the surrounding bay where, If we are lucky, we will witness its spectacular tidal swells.  After seeing the village and the bay we will travel by car for 18 km (11 miles) through the jungle to El Valle, a small seaside village close to the entrance to Utría National Park, where we will find our eco-hotel on nearby El Almejal beach. There we will have a delicious lunch of local fare and later take a walk along the beach. The rest of the afternoon will be dedicated to relaxing and enjoying the place at your leisure.

Note: Those not embarking from Medellin may arrange a different flight to Bahía Solano and meet the rest of the group there.
