Stuck in the office after a weekend of fun? We don’t blame your mind for wandering. Now let it wander to Colombia with us. You may know a thing or two about Colombia’s amazing biodiversity; its jungles, forests, skies, seas and valleys are full of rare and fascinating creatures…
But did you know that, every year from June to October, the waters of Nuqui – a town in Colombia’s Choco region – play host to dozens of mother whales who are shepherding their new-borns through warm and gentle seas? A quick flight from Medellin to Nuqui airport is the best way to travel to this surprising whale-watching hotspot.
This is simply a must for the nature-lovers and budding eco-tourists amongst you (of which, we’re sure, there are many). Getting up close and personal with these wondrous mammals offers the discerning traveller the chance to truly feel the power of nature and allows for an appreciation of its sublimity.
Whales in tropical Colombia? Oh how we love surprises on dull weekday mornings.
