    Excellent, safe & inexpensive way to visit Park Arvi as well as see the entire city of Medellin from a different perspective.

    Guatape, unlike the rock, was very much worth the two hour drive from Medellin. I absolutely could not get enough of the gorgeous views of the lake. The water and natural formations are breathtaking. As part of our tour, we got to go out on a boat around Guatape and it was a pretty fun experience. I think if you're visiting Medellin you have to come out and see how beautiful this place is.

    I love a good museum, make it science and it’s even better in my book. Parque Explora was an incredible museum for people of all ages. I saw kindergarten students, high school students, and even elderly couples at the museum and they all seemed to be having a good time. It was very interactive, informative, and definitely kept my attention.

    At first I didn't understand the appeal of the Escaleras. But after visiting them and reaching the top of Comuna 13, I completely get it. Not only do they offer you an incredible view of Medellin, but they take you to a tourist hot spot. The top is filled with venders, shops, galleries, restaurants, and an abundance of street performers.

    Beautiful grounds and worth a visit. Try and go early morning, less humidity and less people. Built in 1930, not that old, looks and feels older. The family did some good for the town and very sad about their daughter dying so young. Great photo opportunities.

    Especially nice exhibits of the famous Botero. Lots of fat folks sculptures and paintings.

    Some are quite intriguing and some not so much.

    Very clean and organized.

    Worth a visit.

    Whether with your family or by yourself, Park Arvi is an excellent choice to spend an hour or half a day. There are many different sections and outdoor dining options or snack options throughout the park. The gondola option leading up to the park is also enjoyable.

    Great experience. Beautifully done and arranged in the park.
    Did feel a bit unsafe due to a very heavy traffic of homeless and prostitution in the park itself.

    I happened to visit during the Fiesta Del Libro Y La Cultura. It was wonderful to see so many book venders, authors, informational panels, and interactive sessions. The gardens themselves are nice. Definitely a smaller garden without a wide vary of plants, unlike other gardens I've visited. But admission is free and it's a great place to spend an hour or two.

    Just a lovely mall where everybody of the family will be happy and find something nice. Luxurious mall high on top of a hill.

    "El Pueblito Paisa" is an amazing place located at "el Cerro Nutibara" in Medellin, Antioquia which does not cost anything, it is an attractive viewpoint and a replica of a Paisa town, there are handicrafts and food if you want to buy. The climate is temperate and humid, with an average temperature of 21.6°C. In my experience it is a very nice place where you can try Colombian cuisine and the dances and views of Medellin Colombia

    The Medellin Metro does exactly what you want from a metro. It gets you from point A to point b safely, affordably and reliably. As part of our city tour, our tour guide took us from communa 13 to the city centre using the metro and it was an easy process to get there. My one complaint would be the fact that the metro places don't have a lot of handicapped accessible options. So my mom has knee problems and struggled to make her way up and down the stairs. Obviously, my mom is not the only one who suffers from knee issues and they should really address this.

    I love this mall. It was our first and it's quite big. It was across the street of our hotel so we were there almost every day. It's even nice to just hang out.
    Also a lot of good restaurants for lunch and dinner
