Colombia's Pacifc Coast Information - 2007/09/12 06:31 Interested in member advice/contacts from those with experience traveling extensively through Colombia's Choco region (specifically around Bahia Solano, El Valle, Nuqui, and Cabo Corrientes) and Isle Ladrilleros.
I will be flying/boating out of Panama into Colombia’s Caribbean coast at the end of Feb/start o March. From the Caribbean would travel to the Pacific – to the areas listed above. I am interested in the surf Colombia has to offer, particularly on the Pacific side, which is concentrated in the zona roja areas. Looking at the best (i.e safest) way to explore this area- with local(s)/guide and fellow travelers – with backpack and board in tow.


Any contact and area information would be greatly appreciated. All the best, Wendy

Re:Colombia's Pacifc Coast Information - 2007/09/16 02:01 Are you nuts ... Colombia! Try Costa Rica? You just don't go wandering around in Colombia ... had a buddy who went there back in the day to buy a couple of keys (smuggled then out in pottery) said you have to hire a AK-7 toting bodyguard at all times or you will get kidnapped robbed or stabbed. PS When he got back had a hell of a party ... rented a yacht with a live band for a Catalina Island trip ... alas that night seas were running 6 to 8 feet was SO messed up! (When the lead singer puked so did everyone else!)

Re:Colombia's Pacifc Coast Information - 2007/09/17 01:24 Wendy unless you are related to Tony Montana you are the one with Machismo! Peru has some great waves and is about as sketchy as I would try. (My 24 year old daughter is cavorting around France as we speak.)
