  • Go see whales to Bahía Solano is a wonderful experience to make between the months of July and October, but it is necessary to be aware that not all those who pay the tour to see whales see them, can sometimes pass 7, 8 hours by boat without seeing the whales or see the while out of the water, not even the tail. Sometimes in an hour can see them jump and even see groups of dolphins and turtles swim in the sea. It all depends on luck, there is no way to know or predict this. It should be prepared.

  • The Pacific one of the trips that wanted to do for a long time, but finally take the time to know Juanchaco and Ladrilleros was Colombian. From Buenaventura takes a boat that takes you to Juanchaco, there are sites where to stay but what I recommend is to stay in this bar a bit far, but they are hostels near ocean view and more comfortable. Whale watching is carried out depending on weather, Ocean Pacific has its dynamics and climate is who decides whether or not you can go out to the sighting to. Watching a boat is taken from Ladrilleros and to have patience, because (mothers) whales and their calves come out but will not expect to have the camera ready, so it must be always recording. However, I think it's better to relax and just watch out and forget about the photo. It really is majestic to see the whales so close to the boat, they are huge mammals.
