Hidden away on the Northwestern side of the Caribbean is a town that has long ago been discovered by Colombian tourists. Foreign tourists only visit Tolú in small numbers, but this town has tremendous appeal due to its quiet beach atmosphere. The town has an island feeling, where things take time and there is not much of a hurry to get to your destination.
