Best Pacific Adventures weather

We do have different temperatures during our tours. During the ground drive from Cali (3.398 ft of altitude), to San Cipriano or Buenaventura we’ll have to go through the Farallones National Park and the Western Cordillera, and that means that we’ll go up to the mountain during 30 minutes to reach 6.371ft (1948m) of altitude when we’ll have our first stop to have breakfast.

After that we’ll be going down through different altitudes, San Cipriano at 639ft (195m), Buenaventura 88ft (27m), Pianguita and Maguipi are at sea level  and temperatures between 28°C and 31°C.

The weather conditions are constantly changing . The silver lining is that after the rain and when the sun comes out, it provide us with the most exciting and brilliant photograph opportunities of fauna and flora, ever!

What to bring on your Best Pacific Adventures ?

We encourage you to wear loose clothing that is light in colour, use sunblock, and wear a hat.

We highly recommend that you wear comfortable, walking or hiking shoes; also recommend that you take a pair of shoes that you can use to go into the river to avoid stepping on the small rocks.This kind of shoes will also help you to get on and off of the speed boats that we use to visit Pianguita and our private beaches at Maguipi Park.

Only wear sandals or open-toe shoes during your relax time at the swimming pool at Maguipi Hotel.
