A FAMILY-OWNED ECO-HOTEL
Forty years ago, the Montoya brothers settled in Morromico, when the only inhabitants were the creatures of the jungle and the marine life in the sea. Over time, as their family grew, so did their aspirations to create a place where those adventurous enough to visit could stay and discover what they call “paradise on earth”. Today, Morromico continues to be an exclusive eco-hotel, with a limit of ten guests at a time, allowing the family and its dedicated staff to provide those who come with a warm and personalized experience.
Morromico is located on the Gulf of Tribugá in the Chocó region of Western Colombia, north of the town of Nuquí. Chocó, with its moist tropical rainforest and volcanic sand beaches is considered one of the areas of greatest biodiversity on the planet. Its unrivaled natural resources include one of the most diverse ecosystems of plants and insects on earth. The region boasts more than six hundred different species of birds and the underwater fauna is more varied and abundant than that of the Atlantic. Fresh water is plentiful and flows from deep within the rainforest through rivers, ravines, pools and waterfalls out to the Pacific sea. Small communities of fishermen live at the river mouths and further inland, deep in the forest, there are settlements of Emberá indigenous people.
Guests must book their roundtrip flights from Medellín – Enrique Olaya Herrera Airport, to Nuquí – Reyes Murillo Airport. Morromico’s staff can help provide options if traveling from other cities in Colombia.
Airlines and charter companies serve Nuquí most days. Morromico recommends Grupo San German, a charter company based in Medellín, and provides guests with a promotional discount.
Boat transfer service is handled by Morromico from Nuquí Airport to and from our property (about 45 minutes each way).
The average temperature is 23ºC with a maximum of 30ºC.
The sunniest and driest months are January to April and the rainy season is October to early December.
Rainfall in this region is one of the highest in the world, which is why biodiversity is so abundant.
