Tamesis is like a massive balcony with a jaw-dropping view of the Cauca river’s canyon. This little town is off the radar for 99% of the travelers. 

Although Tamesis doesn’t have the charm of Jardin or Jerico, that place is a must-see if you like adventure activities. Indeed, Eco Catarma is a responsible and top-notch local agency that organizes fantastic experiences like Canyoning, rappelling, cave exploring and hiking. 

Add Tamesis in your Colombia itinerary if you’re traveling to Medellin or Jerico.
