Chocó, the never ending Pacific Coast

Travel and Leisure has named the Pacific Coast, department Chocó as one of the 50 best places to travel in 2018, and I would have to agree!  We arrived on a airplane that probably was state of the art in the late 50s, to a dirt runway that was lined with palm trees and had an old airplane that had crashed probably 25 years ago at the end.

A lovely Afro-colombian woman directed us to a fishing boat that took us up the bay and into one of the most ecologically diverse places on the planet.  I have never seen so much coast that was not interrupted by highways or buildings. It was just pure natural beauty that kept everyone in the boat in silence.  The most magical night of my life was when I swam in the bay with bioluminescent plankton that glows when it moves. Check out what Travel and Leisure has to say about Choco:
