The Golfo de Uraba

The Golfo de Urabá has a few tiny towns nestled on the fringes of the Darién Gap. Acandí, Triganá and San Francisco have decent, affordable accommodations, quiet beaches and amazing hiking. All are accessible by boat from Turbo. In Acandí between March and May hundreds of leatherback turtles, measuring as much as 2m in length and weighing up to 750kg, come ashore to lay their eggs.
