Surfing

Colombia’s best surfing spots can be found along the Pacific Coast, where the currents are stronger, waves higher and the sea less busy than on the Caribbean side. If you are just a beginner there are plenty of small and consistent waves to get you up on the board with some of our local instructors. The community of Termales also boasts its very own surf school which runs programs for local kids teaching them how to surf, be safe in the water and to respect and care for the ocean. 

Turtles

Every year between June and December,  Olive Ridley sea turtles migrate to the Pacific coast beaches to lay an average of a hundred eggs. Local conservationists walk the beaches at night and collect the eggs to protect them from predators. After approximately fifty five days of incubation, the eggs are ready to hatch and you can participate in releasing the baby turtles back to the ocean, giving them the best chance of survival.
