  • 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.

  • Beautiful, watch them swim with their children newborns and learn because are here and because it is only for this season

  • We saw whales in the two outputs that we carry out, issues weather could not split at 7 am which is when they are better. However we observe them closely with their calves, we saw them jump, blow and say hello. The boatmen were very responsible and made us feel 100% safe, in addition to wanting genuinely to the avistaramos, mas alla of pay them for the service.
