Where the jungle meets the ocean’s edge: An astounding diving paradise that will leave you exhilarated, enchanted, and speechless! During the last weeks of April and the first weeks of May, a beautiful, natural event occurs off of the coast of Chocó: Millions of sardines migrate north along this Pacific Coast, attracting an array of predators to enjoy the feast. Predators include Yellow Fin Tuna, distinct shark species such as Tiger and Grey Reef, spearfish, dolphins, rays, as well as an abundance of diving seabirds. This natural phenomenon happens once a year and if you are lucky enough to see it, there are not many experiences that beat it—especially when combined with the stories and experience of knowledgeable, local guides and hosts.
When you are not on a boat or in the water searching for the sardines, you can be walking through the jungle to secret waterfalls, surfing the Pacific breaks, enjoying a relaxing day at the beach, bird-watching, or simply swinging in a hammock at the remote eco-lodge as you watch the endless, breath-taking ocean vista. The combination of diverse ecological activities, opportunities to engage with local culture of the Emberá people, time to relax, and to nourish your body with delicious local food, will make your stay so pleasant that you will most-assuredly never want to leave!
