Nóvita is a municipality and town in the Chocó Department, Colombia.

It was the first capital of Chocó Province. It was a traditional center for gold mining,[1] Many of its residents are Afro-Colombians.[2]

In the 1850s, supplies, and possibly even people, were brought to the town by porters due to "the mountainous terrain, very high rainfall, and many rivers" of the surrounding region.[3][4]
