Highlights

Medellín Colombia Immersive Cultural Tour (8 days)

In Colombia, richness is measured by the charisma of its people, the biodiversity of its regions, and the passion of its musical beats. Dive into a country where mountains frame urban landscapes, waves hit the beaches to the rhythm of cumbia, the dawn demands a cup of black coffee, and the night comes only to catch a glimpse of the bolero sounds echoing from the streets.

This Medellín immersive cultural tour invites you to the second largest city in Colombia known as the City of Eternal Spring for its year-round climate. Medellín is a vibrant and dynamic destination that boasts a deeply transformative history, innovative architecture, a thriving culinary scene, and friendly locals known as "paisas." We will see why Medellín was awarded the Most Innovative City in the World in 2012 for social change through culture, education and urban technology. It is here where the entire country of Colombia overcame an era of instability, violence, and disrepute. We will explore the city's fascinating history, unique culture, must-see sights, but most of all, interact with locals and experience local life and communities up close and personal.

We will take in-depth cultural tours and day trips of the city center, educative memorials, Comuna 13, Guatapé, surrounding mountain communities, charming neighborhoods, and ecoadventure parks. Of course, we will indulge in the city's famous cuisine from street food vendors to amazing restaurants, including traditional dishes such as bandeja paisa, arepas, empanadas and some of the best coffee on the planet.

The city center captures your attention at every glance with bustling daily life, magnificent colonial and modern architecture, and larger-than-life sculptures by famous Colombian artist Fernando Botero.

We'll ascend from the downtown valley to the hills of Comuna 13 district where you will come to understand the tenacious spirit of the people. Once known as the most dangerous neighborhood in the world, Comuna 13 has been transformed into a vibrant and colorful area filled with murals and street art by local, national and international artists, lively music, and technological innovations to support the well-being and economic access of the people, the community and the city. We will learn about the district's troubled past, as well as its incredible resilience and transformation.

No trip to Medellín is complete without a day trip to the nearby town of Guatapé known for its colorful houses and the impressive Piedra del Peñol rock formation, one of the world's top 10 largest monoliths. We will rise to the challenge and walk up its over 700 steps to the top of the rock for breathtaking views of the surrounding archipelago. We'll descend to explore the quaint town and sail between the islands on our private barge.

We will go deeper into the lesser-known aspects of Medellín's history, life, culture and connection to the greater world in mountain towns of coffee, cocoa, and flowers sent right from the City of Eternal Spring to the world. This immersive cultural tour of Medellín, Colombia invites you to experience Medellín beyond the surface with unforgettable sights, sounds, flavors and people.
