The Port of Buenaventura is Colombia’s main port on the Pacific Ocean. On Cascajal Island where the Dagua River meets Buenaventura Bay, Buenaventura exports coffee and sugar from the Cauca River valley, wood from southwest Colombia’s coastal forests, and gold and platinum from the north. It receives oil by pipeline from Puerto Berrio, and it is served by the Puerto Berrio-Popayan railroad.
