Surfing in Colombia

If there’s one thing that characterises surfers it’s a restless spirit and a desire for adventure. Thankfully, in Colombia you can satisfy the thirst for adventure while surfing by discovering areas rarely touched by a board.

The best places for
Surf in Bahia Solano on Colombian Pacific Coastsurfing in Colombia are found on the Pacific Coast. For surfers, Nuqui is usually the meeting point, and from there you can explore local beaches to ride the waves of the Pacific. The best places nearby are Pico de Loro, Juan Tornillo and El Chorro.

=> There are also surfing spots near to Buenaventura, although these are only recommended for experts since it is uncharted territory and therefore lacking in safety measures.

Surfing in Tayrona ColombiaSurfing is possible on the Caribbean Coast, too, near Cartagena, Tayrona and Barranquilla. These areas are definitely the waves more travelled, but are enjoyable (if a little easy) nonetheless. Near Barranquilla, PradoMar is a modest place to surf but a great place to party on the beach at night.

=> Keep in mind that in Colombia the waves come from the South West between April and December and then, in January and February, from the North East. Waves are higher between April and December normally.

For many destinations, since they aren’t overwhelmingly popular
, you may end up having to pay more than hostel prices to stay in hotels or ecolodges. This, unfortunately, is the downside to being a pioneering, adventurous surfer hunting for new spots.
