Pacific

The Colombian Pacific begins with the city of Cali and includes the expansive Valle del Cauca, as well as the major port city of Buenaventura and the Chocó department. It is a natural paradise for whale watching and home to some of Colombia’s most valuable natural resources.

The whale season in Colombia starts mid July and runs until October.
