Thousands of migrants from Haiti, Cuba, Venezuela and Africa arrive in waves in Necoclí, flooding the city, as they try to cross the Darien Pass through Panama to reach the US border.
At the same time in an almost ironic reality because it is also seen how thousands of migrants "fled from paradise". This small coastal town is undoubtedly a tourist spot but it is also a stopover on the way to the border with the United States, and to get there these families have to cross one of the deadliest jungles in the world, the Darién Gap, through the border between Colombia and Panama. A wild place that has claimed the lives of many migrants who tried to cross.
