Hello humans! As promised, I have compiled some photographs, videos and links of the 4 years journey through the Colombian Pacific. How we fell in love with the territory exploring the 4 departments and understood the motivation for which we embarked on this beautiful journey.

FACING REALITY ON THE LAST DAY OF THE TRIP

The beauty and practicality of the houses on the sea is forgotten behind the black bags and the carelessness that sought to hide the shady businesses that occurred inside. Nowadays, thanks to the work of people like Jemny and Yasmani, travelers from several countries can visit without problem as long as they are accompanied by a good local guide.

ECOLOGY AND TRADITION, KEY OF LIFE IN PLAYA PIANGÜITA

The work of natural protection in Piangüita is not only environmental awareness, it is survival. The care of the mangrove ensures the subsistence of the piangua, an essential ingredient of the Pacific traditional food. Taking care of the beaches is the way for more people to want to visit them and for the business of restaurants, accommodation and other tourist services to prosper.

THE WEIGHT OF TRUST. VICISSITUDES OF THE TRIP TO JUANCHACO

We carry many stories from Juanchaco in the camera and in our minds, 3 characters who told us their stories, Atanasia Gamboa, Rosalbina Valencia and C Quartz Kiro, stories that we share with you (see Blogs Chapter 2). They are stories of family, effort and dedication. We are leaving, with the weight and responsibility that trust means.

MEETINGS AND DISCOUNTERS. EXPERIENCES ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE EXPEDITION

Food is more than a moment of family bonding and delight. That close relationship that exists between fire, heart and health, taught by grandparents, is clear in the Pacific kitchen where medicinal and aromatic plants grow on the rooftops, and an aromatic dinner accompanied by a drink of viche, is a cure for the body and soul.

A CACHACA IN BUENAVENTURA. MY FIRST ENCOUNTER WITH THE PACIFIC

We work with affection and admiration for the men and women who are born, live and die in the Pacific, their differences and similarities, their deep-rooted love for their territory. For this reason, we want to tell you the story of these people who guided our trip and we hope you can see a portrait of Buenaventura.
