The tropical rainforest melts down with the ocean and creates an unique opportunity to get unforgettable travel experiences to do whale watching, while lodging comfortably away from noisy cities. EL ALMEJAL Lodge and Rainforest Reserve is aimed at those who love nature and look for a quiet trip. Whales come every year between June and October to mate, nurse their calves, and enjoy the warm waters of the Pacific Coast of Colombia. For more than twenty years. We have offered Responsible, Respectful, Educational, and Fun whale and dolphin tours. Seeing Humpback Whales with us will be a powerful experience not only in getting close to the largest animals on earth and see them jump out of the water and splash their gigantic tails, but also in listening to their love songs.
