Just 50 minutes from Medellin, Santa Elena is a perfect destination if you want a place with fewer tourists. Here you can book a visit to a silletera farm to discover a fascinating tradition that is present every year during the Feria de las Flores de Medellín. In addition, you can go hiking in the Arvi Ecotourism Park and on the Montevivo Trail.

Why glamping in Guarne
Located 50 minutes from Medellin, Guarne borders Santa Elena and offers hiking opportunities as well as beautiful waterfalls.
The best glamping in Guarne is Sharmont.
In most glamping, including the most luxurious ones, you will find internet only in the common areas because you will be in the middle of nature. If you require wifi at all times, Sharmont and Bruma Blanca have internet coverage in their rooms.
Most affordable glamping
If you are on a tight budget, your best offer will be Bruma Blanca.
Being outdoors, most of the glamping sites have free parking. In the case of Asis, which you must access by boat, you can park in the Marina Navegar. Always remember to double-check with the owner first.
Glamping for families
Bruma Blanca is ideal for families. It has cabins that can accommodate 4 or 6 people.
Why I didn’t include Bubblesky and La Montaña Sagrada
Bubblesky glamping is another well-known option in Antioquia with beautiful and large transparent bubbles. We have decided not to include it in our list due to recent reviews about bad service, disrepair, and intense temperatures inside their domes.
La Montaña Sagrada is another beautiful glamping on the way to El Retiro, which we have decided not to include. The site is difficult to enjoy as there is no shade, no extra activities, and a challenging access road.
