Nuquí has some services that cater to tourism, but it is better known as the base for excursions into the surrounding area. Its expansive beachfront looks out into the vast Gulf of Tribuga and is strewn with driftwood.

If you have arranged to spend your time at one of the nearby award-winning eco-lodges, then you’ll likely be picked up at the airport on the eastern end of town. After you register with the DAS official and pay the tourist tax ($2.80), a motorboat will take you to your chosen destination.

There are no banks in Nuquí, and electricity is scarce. The town’s hotels are in the northern sector, a five-minute walk from the airport. Aside from these, Nuquí itself offers little to tourists. It is the surroundings that most people have come here for: to explore the mangroves in Coquí, the hot springs at Termales, the surf at Cabo Corrientes, and the waterfalls and wonder of the Utría National Park.


Other places nearby Nuquí: Bahía Solano, El Valle and Quibdó.
