Nuquí & Termales

Photos of my 2015 visit to the municipality of Nuqui on Colombia’s Pacific coast. Nuqui and its surrounding townships are each inhabited by fewer than 8,000 people, mostly Afro-descendents and indigenous communities.

Nuquí

Nuqui and its surrounding areas have been historically neglected by the colombian government, but eco-tourism has brought visitors––and money––to the region, opening it up for outsiders to explore and enjoy.

Termales

Termales is a very small municipality located south of Nuqui that gets its name from the natural thermal pools that bubble near a crystal-clear river which cuts a path through the lush jungle. Whale-watching and surfing are also popular activities in the region.

Termales es una pequeña municipalidad ubicada al sur de Nuquí cuyo nombre viene de los termales naturales que rebosan entre la selva y ríos cristalinos. El surf y avistamiento de ballenas son otras actividades populares en la region.

Surfing Chocó

Aunque el surf es un deporte bastante nuevo en Colombia, en la costa Pacífica están entrenando surfistas como Edwin Piyi Díaz, de Termales–donde se fundó en el 2013 el Club de Surf del Chocó–quien ha participado en varias competencias tanto nacionales como internacionales. Aquí hay algunas fotos de Piyi y mi primer intento retratando este deporte.
