45min away from Medellín lays this beautiful paradise. It‘s that special, not even google set foot on it’s ground. Not a single road from the inland leads to this region at the Pacific Coast.
We got there by plane, the tiniest I‘ve ever been on. Flying low above the jungle looked like shooting for BBC‘s third season Planet Earth - a breathtaking experience.
A Tuk Tuk drove us from the house sized airport to El Valle, the village we were going to stay at. I shared my Tuk Tuk with an Australian and Dutch traveler who later will be our house mates.
It rained every now and then and the road was hands down the bumpiest I ever had to pass, the Tuk Tuk was constantly threatened to tip over. Halfway there started a paved road, which felt like cushions compared to the first part, few days later I will know why.
We passed a huge pile of Garbage in at the edge of the rainforest, and it made sense. How the hell are the people supposed to get rid of all the waste and how should they know that dump is a problem and needs special treatment?
