Capurgana – a trip to the Caribbean

Work was intensive these last weeks, lots of interviews, new people to train. etc… So Adriana and me took a long weekend to the Caribbean. A German pal opened a small, but beautiful Lodge close to Capurgana, which is close to the border to Panama. To get there we took the long way… 9 hours from Medellin to Turbo by bus. From there about three hours on a fast boat to Acandi. The boat was jumping so heavily and just locals seem to have the privilege to get the calm seats in the back, so our backs really hurted really badly. On the spot we decided to fly back to Medellin from Capurgana (which doesn’t have a street connection to the rest of Colombia…). From Acandi it was just another 30 minutes to get to Aguacate Bay.

We stayed at Bahia Lodge, a nice Lodge run by Lothar. He had been working two years to get the Lodge running, but recently in December he opened to the public. It’s located at a beautiful liltte bay with a nice beach. Depending on the year the waves get so big, so swimming sometimes isn’t possible.

From Bahia Lodge it’s about one hours walk to Capurgana and in all 2,5 hours to get to “Playa Miel”, already Panama.

Enough said, here are the pics…
