Chocó department, on Colombia’s Pacific coast, is one of the wettest places on Earth. It rains all the time. The small group that I was with was visiting a community tourism project, Mano Cambiada, based in the town of Nuquí.

A little short of two hours in, in our small boat on the open sea, we were drenched to the skin.
