Medellín: Half-Day Private Colonial Towns Tour

1. Medellín: Half-Day Private Colonial Towns Tour

Discover the quaint beauty of 3 different colonial towns outside of Medellin. Visit El Retira, La Ceja, and Rionegro, all places significant in the history of Colombia. The first stop is at El Retiro, a town built in the 18th century. Wander around the central park, see an old church, and traverse pretty streets. Pick up insights into the town's past from your guide. Make a pit stop at a remarkably beautiful waterfall on the way to La Ceja. Explore another town built in the 18th century. Marvel at its historical Spanish architecture. Cap off the half-day experience with a visit to Rionegro, the largest municipality outside Medellin, founded in 1541. This was one of the most important cities during the independence struggle in Colombia, and is home to a museum that highlights this history.

Medellin: Day Trip to Private Zipline and Waterfall Trek

2. Medellin: Day Trip to Private Zipline and Waterfall Trek

Take a day trip from Medellin to soar over jungles and waterfalls via 2 exhilarating ziplines, each over 0.5 km (0.3 miles) long. Along with the undivided attention of your guide, this tour includes snacks and coffee, a hike to the base of Salto Del Buey waterfall, and hotel transfers from Medellin. Start your day trip with a pickup from Medellin. Upon arrival at Pueblo Retiro, treat yourself to some snacks and coffee. Then, head to the zipline site. Fly above 1000 feet high from mountain to mountain with breathtaking views. Enjoy incredible views as you glide in the air at a quick yet comfortable pace from one mountain to another. See 3 waterfalls and soak up the beauty of Mother Nature. If you're looking for more adventure, after ziplining (or before depending on weather conditions), disconnect from the line, and be escorted down to the base of a mammoth waterfall on a 20-minute-long hike. After snapping some photos, proceed to a safe, secure, mountain climbing experience. Wear your harness, get clipped to a safety line, and follow the steps on the side of the mountain with a guide. After going around the mountain, find yourself directly beside the majestic waterfall. Once down at the waterfall, you can get an even closer view from a path leading out to a bridge directly in front of the massive wonder of nature. Next, go on a 10-minute descent to the next tower, where your guide clips you in again to get you ready for the highest zipline in Colombia. On the way back to Medellin, you can choose to stop for optional lunch or grab snacks and drinks in Pueblo Retiro.

I had an incredible experience, I would definitely do this again! My driver Esteban was the man. Picked me up at my hotel, drove me directly to our destination. Was knowledgeable and informative not only about our activity but about the area and environment as well. I am incredibly grateful for my experience.

A very nice tour, our guide Carlos very attentive and with a lot of knowledge of the area and its history.
