Itinerary Description

Nestled between the jungle and the Pacific Ocean on the Colombian west coast lies Terquito beach, a sun-toasted lush paradise in a blissfully uncrowded area, close to the small Afro-Colombian town Termales and only a 40 minutes boat trip from Nuqui Airport. This area has been praised by many as an undiscovered surf paradise and as a “must see” for those who are looking for big and constant swells in South America. Thanks to its prodigious geographical position you will find excellent surf conditions for all kinds of surfing skill levels throughout the year. Warm water, majestic nature, humpback whales jumping on the horizon while you’re waiting for your next wave and much more are part of your perfect surf trip to Colombia. If you’re tired of surfing at crowded beaches and surf spots, this is the right place for you to go. You will have “uncrowded world class spots” all to yourself and your group of friends. Our guides and surf coaches will take you by boat or on foot to the best surf breaks in the surroundings. More than 6 spots from beach breaks to point breaks and from perfect lefts to hollow rights are waiting for you to enjoy the best surf sessions you’ve ever had.

Termales – a simple Afrodescendant village – and Terquito Beach – the hostels area – are located far away from busy regions in the middle of a stunning jungle. Newtours offers a true “all-inclusive Surfari” for groups up to 8 people, so you won’t have to worry about anything yourself. We got you covered. You will stay in a very clean and well-maintained family hostel, located right in front of one of the best surf spots in the area. The food they serve is as fresh as it can be – just freshly taken from the sea. The man in charge was born and raised as a surfer, harpoon fisherman and boatman, a true local from this wild area.

Additionally to all the awesome surfing you can do, you can also participate in all kinds of different activities like jungle hiking, discovering waterfalls, soaking in hot springs, whale watching, visiting natural parks, kayak tours through mangroves or snorkelling in Cabo Corrientes. Our Itinerary starts and ends in Medellín, where we will pick you up and drop you off. This trip has been designed by Colombian surfers with more than 20 years of experience. Come with us and enjoy our Colombia Surfcamp Nuqui.
