Finish with a trip to El Pueblito Paisa, which recreates life in colonial Colombia.
What to Expect
Get picked up by a private vehicle from your hotel in Medellin and travel to a city metro station, where you’ll be dropped off for a ride into the downtown area. Sit back and relax on Medellin’s modern public transport system as you enjoy views of the Andes Mountains, the city, and river.
Arrive at a station in the city’s downtown area and begin an exploration on foot. You’ll stop by a collection of sculptures created by Colombian artist Fernando Botero, and have time to admire the neigborhood’s plazas, colonial churches, and the striking cultural house. Then climb aboard the aerial cable car for a ride into the mountains surrounding town.
Enjoy the views as you ascend above the city below, traveling up to Santo Domingo Savio Library, a modern building donated to the city by the King of Spain. Feel free to take a short walk around the library grounds at your leisure. Leaving the library, head to El Pueblito Paisa in central Medellin. Get a look at what life was like in colonial-era Colombia as you wander around this attraction’s recreated village featuring a church, museum, and a collection of shops selling traditional Colombian handicrafts.
After the El Pueblito Paisa visit you’ll have two choices. Those visitors who select the optional upgrade visit to Arvi Park will proceed on a second aerial cable car ride (extra cost), while all other visitors will receive a ride back to their Medellin hotel.
