Pacific Region

The Pacific Region in Colombia is located in the country’s southwest, on the Pacific coast, to which it owes its name. It is comprised of the Departments of Cauca, Chocó, Nariño and Valle del Cauca. The Region is characterized by its biodiversity and water wealth, as well as by the convergence of multiple ethnic groups and a privileged position on the Colombian Pacific Basin.
