Medellin

City of the Eternal Spring

Nestled between rising hills in a narrow valley, Medellin serves as an energetic melting pot of people from all socio-economic classes.
Take a break from Medellin with a short trip to Piedra Del Penol in Guatape, about 1h 50 min away. Make the 22nd (Mon) a stimulating day with a coffee and tea tour. There's much more to do: get the lay of the land with Walking tours, get a dose of the wild on Alma del Bosque, observe the fascinating underwater world at Parque Explora, and glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour.

The adventure continues: examine the collection at Gold Museum (Museo del Oro), admire the masterpieces at Museo Botero del Banco de la Republica, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour.
