What people are saying about Antioquia

Very nice catamaran trip. Great crew, good music, very good food and drinks. You anchor in front of two islands (each about 1.5-2 hours) with the opportunity to swim and snorkel. The water is fantastically beautiful, but unfortunately you don't really see anything exciting when snorkeling ;). All in all a super nice day tour!

If you are going to visit Medellin you need to do this tour! The cable carts are well worth it for taking great pictures of the view of Medellin and our tour guide Sebastian was incredibly knowledgable and helpful before, during and after the tour! The history behind Communa 13 is something that will interest anyone!
