Colonial townsMedellin & Antioquia

More and more famous among travelers, Jardin is a charming colonial village. Don’t be afraid, you won’t meet hordes of tourists either, especially if you go there in the low season.

I particularly appreciated the pleasant and friendly atmosphere there. The locals wear cowboy hats and are very welcoming. They often gather in one of the many bars, which surround the beautiful central square, to enjoy a coffee or sip a beer while remaking the world. I advise you to take some time to do the same after a nice day on the run.



Visiting coffee farms is one of the main activities in the village, but don’t neglect the walks and hikes that are possible in this area. There is something for all tastes and all levels. Some of the routes can be done without guides and others for which I can only advise you to go with a local agency. I particularly appreciated the day trek passing by the “Salto Del Angel” and “Guacharos”, a fabulous excursion.
Horse lovers will find their happiness as well as extreme sports lovers with options of canyoning and paragliding.

Finally, there are great bars to relax at the end of the afternoon with a good coffee, but also excellent restaurants to spend a good evening and go to bed happy.
A piece of advice, plan more than two nights if you really want to enjoy Jardin!
