Highlights
    What to Expect
    Your flexible tour begins at your Medellin accommodation, where you greet your guide and board an air-conditioned car destined for Medellin’s highlights. Formerly ravaged by drug wars, Medellin has recently made an unrecognizable transformation into a city thriving with culture, art, and culinary delights.

    Head first to Pueblito Paisa, a reconstruction of a typical Colombian village, and travel back in time to turn-of-the-century Colombia as you visit an antique church, schoolhouse and barbershop. After grabbing a snack, continue to Plaza Botero where Fernando Botero sculptures are on permanent display.

    As soon as hunger strikes, be sure to inform your guide who can arrange to visit local restaurants and food stalls.  

    Sated, spend the afternoon delving into the turbulent legacy of Pablo Escobar, the late Colombian drug lord whose reign had a significant effect on Medellin. Visit four sites—including his birthplace, the Monaco Building, and his final resting place—before drop-off at your Medellin accommodation.
