Hike from one laid-back Caribbean village to the next with great views into both bays on the top.

Start your hike in Capurgana at the soccer field. Take the road that leaves at the corner between the soccer field and the right side of the airfield strip to walk towards the North. After a couple of minutes you will see Panaderia Carolina on the right side. Turn left here and the next street right again. Don't worry, if you get confused, there are very friendly locals who will point you to the correct road.

From here on it is just straight. The path leads up the hill through the jungle. Be prepared for heat and humidity! After appr. 1h you will reach the top and have a splendid view into both bays. Catch a breathe and continue thke way down into the bay of Sapzurro.

You can hike the same way back or, if you prefer, you can catch a boat back to Capurgana for 10.000 COP. 

If you already made it to Sapzurro, I highly suggest you to catch a breathe and continue the hike to Le Miel in Panama. It's only another 20min, you can make it!
