Capurganá Colombia Escape to a Jungle Paradise All-Inclusive Tour (4 days)

Escape the bustling cities to a lesser-known, remote jungle paradise! Capurganá is a rustic, car-free, paradisaical village on Colombia’s Caribbean coast, accessible only by air or water. You will be enraptured by its aqua-green waters, rugged shoreline, natural pools at the edge of the ocean, ecoadventures, and nature preserves. We will be surrounded by quiet bays one side and dense rainforest and the Panama border on the other side.

The ultimate adventure of this escape is hopping the border to La Miel, Panama on a day hike through a nature reserve and enjoying a pristine local beach! Along the way, we will encounter natural habits of monkeys and birds, dense flora, cocoa, and scenic mountain top views of bays. We will descend down to local fishing villages at the edge of white sand beaches and enjoy freshly caught fish and local cuisine.

We will learn about local Afro-Colombian culture, way of life, and organizations that support migrants and preserving natural habits and turtles.

You will find relaxation and enjoy leisure time in this natural wellness paradise of bays, beaches, natural pools and waterfalls.
