Photo Essay: Bahia Solano, Colombia (Part Two)


Embark on a vacation to Colombia’s Pacific Coast — you won’t regret it. I loved my time in Bahia Solano, Colombia. Travel along with me with this illuminating photo essay:

In This Colombia Photo Essay You Will Discover:

  • (A dolphin that is the opposite of that)
  • Expansive Beaches

  • And More!

Colombia — is this South America’s most beautiful country? Well, I haven’t travelled extensively in S.A., but I’m certain Colombia is in the running. I relished 10 days on the country’s Pacific Coast, Bahia Solano region, hopping from eco-lodge to eco-lodge via rough-and-tumble boat ride in an attempt to experience everything the region has to offer.

A newly-hatched olive ridley turtle makes its way out to sea; possibly to live another 200 years.

El Cantil, one of Bahia Solano’s nicest eco-lodges.


It’s a rainforest. How rainy? Imagine eight metres of rainfall annually!

Sorry. But at least now you can’t claim to have never seen a dead dolphin.

This silly dog accompanied us on a hike to a natural hot springs, waited for us to finish swimming, then walked us back to the lodge and disappeared.


The ubiquitous Red Crab, found in abundance in Bahia Solano.


Bahia Solano’s beaches are usually totally empty; they have a Pirate Island feel.

Unquestionably, the best thirst-quencher in the world (and nothing like the canned stuff).

    Wow, it looks incredible. I really wish I’d spent more time in Colombia. Need to go back already!

    Thanks! I was with a local “expert” at the time, and she said it was more than likely natural causes. No “foul play” suspected.
