Ecotourism paradise for nature and adventure lovers Gorgona Island is worth the effort! After flying to Guapi via Cali you will take a boat for 1.5 to arrive to this jungle island paradise.
Gorgona is one of the 2 islands that occupy Colombia´s pacific coast. This island full of diverse flora and fauna was once home to Colombia´s own island prison with some of the most feared habitants. These days you can visit the jungle intwined ruins with one of the islands guides. There is no shortage of fauna to see whether you are lucky enough to be there between June – November when the whales arrive to take a break while they give life to their calves.
