Explore the "City of Eternal Spring" plus its surroundings!

During this Medellin tour, you will spend three days getting to know Colombia's second-largest city and its surroundings. Medellin is known for having perfect weather and spectacular views. There are plenty of things to do in Medellin and we'll hit the highlights and the most iconic places such as Plaza de Botero, El Pueblito Paisa and Parque LLeras. We’ll also take you to Comuna 13 to show you how they've changed over the years. Comuna 13 was once a rundown, dangerous area but is now a prime spot to see colourful graffiti and learn about Colombia’s class system and communities. This Medellin tour also includes an exciting day trip to Guatape and EL Peñol and a visit to a local flowers farm to learn about the cultivation process and the elaboration of flower arrangements called silletas for the famous flowers festival.

DAY 1 Flight to Medellin and City Tour

In the morning, we will transfer you to the airport for a flight to Medellin. On arrival to Medellin, we will meet you at the airport to take you to the hotel where you will have some time to relax and have lunch before starting our Medellin city tour.

During the city tour, we will visit the most iconic areas of the city including: Plaza de Botero, El Pueblito Paisa and Parque LLeras. The Plaza de Botero is a medium sized plaza full of sculptures created by the famous Colombian sculptor, Fernando Botero (originally from Medellin). He is famous for his style of painting, which makes everything look "chubby". The Parque Lleras and El Pueblito Paisa are two of Medellin's must-see quarters. The Pueblito Paisa, a small replica of a typical Antioquia township, located on top of the 80m-hill "Cerro Nutibara" is the perfect place to get a great panoramic view of the city, while the Parque Lleras is one of the most popular areas for entertainment and nightlife in Medellin

Overnight: Medellin - Hotel Diez
Meal Plan: None

DAY 2 Visit Comuna 13 and Flowers Farm

In the morning, we will take you to Comuna 13, previously one of the most dangerous neighbourhoods in Medellin. The area is safe to explore now, thanks to the government’s promise to improve the neighbourhood and the community’s commitment to sharing this unique part of Medellin with visitors. Ride multiple elevators installed on the side of a mountain to help people move through the community easier. The walls of Comuna 13 are adorned with bright graffiti and your local guide will explain the meaning and symbolism behind some of the works of art. Witness for yourself how one community that was once home to immense struggle has blossomed into a colourful cultural spot in Medellin.

After visiting Comuna 13, we will go to Santa Elena to visit a local flowers farm when you will have a traditional Colombian lunch prepared by the mom of the house. This is your chance to learn more about Colombian gastronomy and what foods are popular among the locals. 

Santa Elena is a small town located about 30 minutes above Medellin. The flower farm you will visit has sprawling grounds, vibrant blooms and owners who are ready to welcome you with open arms. Visitors will have the chance to try some traditional Colombians snacks such as arepas or empanadas in the charming main house. Next, it’s time to learn about the whole flower cultivation process and why horticulture is so important in this area of Colombia. You will also participate in a hands-on flower arranging activity learn how locals compete to make stunning arrangements for annual parades that draw visitors from all over the world. At the end of the day, we will drop you back off at your hotel.

DAY 3 Day trip to Guatape and transfer to the airport

Today we will go to Guatape, a small town located about 1.5 hours by car from Medellin in a beautiful zone wedged between a reservoir and a colossal stone called EL Peñol. Upon arrival to the town of Guatape, you will be surrounded by the most colourful houses, each one intricately decorated with zocalos, traditionally painted carvings, along the lower parts of the main entrances. After visiting the town, we will go to El Peñol from where you will get a stunning view of the region. We will also take a boat ride around the reservoir.

At the end of the tour, we will take you to the airport to catch a flight to your next destination.

uncover colombia really covers colombia

My wife and I had been interested in visiting Colombia largely because my father worked in Barranquilla in the early to mid-1960s and I had not been back since then. I found Uncover Colombia online and entered into email conversations with Nidia Penagos about designing a trip. The result was an exceptional experience...

colombia excels

Uncover Colombia is the best travel agency we have ever used, and we have traveled to many different countries and used many different agencies... The standout person was Nidia. She organized our trip to Colombia perfectly. We asked for different things to be done in our 11 days in Colombia. She included every place using aeroplanes and cars as modes of transportation.

– Marla, January 2020

great colombia private tour company

I can highly recommend Uncover Colombia. I used the company for a week-long solo trip to Colombia spanning three cities: Bogota, Medellin and Cartagena. They did a wonderful job for me, providing English-speaking guides in each of the cities and arranging transportation to various sites and internal flights from city to city...

– Will, December 2019

great company

We used this company for two tours while in Bogota. They are great to work with and communication was amazing. If looking for someone to see Colombia definitely check out this company.

tour of corcora valley, salento and coffee plantation

We had a private tour with guide, Camilo, and driver also called Camilo. We were picked up from our hotel on time, and immediately camilo started to tell us interesting information on Colombia, nature etc. Our walk was amazing - we saw a condor and hummingbirds and Camilo was very knowledgeable about nature, history and politics...

tour of the coffee region and bogota

Uncover Colombia helped me and my husband organized an unforgettable trip to Colombia! The staff is very communicative, open to help and support any need/last minute requests you might have. The guides that will take you around in your tours are incredibly knowledgeable...

best travel company in colombia

For the third year in a row, we have used the very knowledgeable and friendly professionals at Uncover Colombia to plan our trip to that very beautiful country. We toured in and around Bogota our first trip and for the last 2 years we have been going to Cartagena. The hotel reservations, the transfers, and the tours are always done in a flawless manner...

– James, February 2018

exploring around colombia

Guides were excellent and spoke good English which helped as my Spanish is, shall we say, developing! The places for accommodation were also good, but ask if you would prefer smaller hotels as the company are very flexible. We had good communication with the local representative from Uncover Colombia while we were in the country, and very quick, helpful responses while planning from England.

– John, April 2018

excellent trip

My husband and I recently visited Colombia for 28 days. The whole trip was organized by Uncover Colombia and they did a great job. This was a customized trip for just the 2 of us. We visited Bogota, Salento, in the Coffee Region, Cartagena, Santa Marta, the El Dorado Reserve and Leticia in the Amazon...

– Lee C, March 2018

great trip to colombia!

We went on a grand tour of Colombia, visiting all the places my daughter (who lives there) recommended over a couple of weeks...Our trip couldn't have been any better. We were treated like royalty from start to finish - excellent hotels, guides and great places to visit. Thoroughly enjoyed every moment. What a beautiful country!

– Mary, January 2018

exceptional colombia travel agent

My wife and I wanted to visit Colombia. We travel independently or with an agent who only deals with one country. From our first contact to a final meeting after our 3 week trip they performed brilliantly...Colombia exceeded our expectations and anyone wishing to go should choose to travel with Uncover Colombia.
