Your personalised See Colombia tour takes you to one of Colombia’s highlights – Medellín. The fact that Medellín has benefited from the character of its people is unquestionable. Once the epicenter of Pablo Escobar’s drug cartel, it now lays claim to being one of the most progressive, modern cities in South America thanks to the optimism, industrialism and pride of the paisas that call Medellín home. Known as ‘The City of Eternal Spring’, the title not only describes the perfect weather that’s almost a constant in Medellín, but also the continually perpetuating sense of hope and renewal that characterizes Colombia’s 2nd city. All this and much more only with See Colombia Travel.
Day 1 - August 8. Medellin
Upon arrival in Medellin transfer to your chosen hostel where you can have dinner, relax and prepare for the rest of your adventure.
Day 2 - August 9. Medellin - City and Pablo Escobar Tour
You will see the house in which Escobar was hiding shortly before he died on the roof of the very same building. You’ll be told more information about his life and death and, circumstances permitting, you can go inside to see for yourself how he attempted to escape before the police caught him. The tour ends at Escobar’s final resting place, a cemetery on the outskirts of Medellín. It’s here you can learn more about the complicated legacy the man left behind, as the special grave will suggest.
Day 3 - August 10. Medellin – Santa Fe de Antioquia
After breakfast we leave Medellín for Santa Fe de Antioquia municipality, declared Humanity´s Heritage. Its small cobbled streets and its beautiful houses with balconies recall the colonial period. The access road goes through a 4km tunnel and by the “Puente Colgante de Occidente”, a masterpiece of engineering from the 19 century. As an optional activity you could go horse riding in the surrounding mountains.
Day 4 - August 10. Medellin - Rio Claro
At the chosen time transfer to the Natural Reserve of Rio Claro where you’ll spend the night before going back to Bogota. During your stay you’ll have the option of taking some of the available activities such as rafting, canopy or cave tracking – a must. Meals: L, D, B. END OF OUR SERVICES
