Jerico is a perfect and authentic off the beaten path colonial town. There are many impressive churches and colorful facades. Colombians love to get there for Semana Santa and other religious reasons, but you won’t meet many foreigners.
Jerico is nestled on the top of a hill and offers some fantastic viewpoints. Take a jeep to visit hidden coffee farms or hike to Parque de Los Nubes to enjoy the show.
Also, take your time. Don’t rush. Order a cup of coffee and sit in the main square. It’s the best way to appreciate a Colombian Colonial town.
It’s only 3h away from Medellin.

In Jerico, you will find many excellent accommodation options. Towns are a bit loud in general, so don't pick your hotel in the main square. There are tuk-tuks in case your hotel is on the outskirts of Jerico.

Things to do in Jerico
Although you could visit Jerico in 1 day, I don't recommend it! You will find many activities to do around - with or without a guide - and the atmosphere in Jerico is quite magical. You don't want to do it in a hurry. Book some tours, drink many cups of coffee, and eat in your favorite restaurant.
For us, good restaurants and exciting nightlife are important while traveling. We gathered our favorite picks on an interactive Map. Look for "Colombia Insider - Eat and Party like a local in Colombia" on Mapstr!
