Day 1 - Medellin to Jardin

Recommended Hotel: Casa Passiflora Boutique Hotel

 

Jardín, is a gorgeous and authentic colonial town. Jardín is known for its colorful houses, vibrant floral displays, and delicious milk candies. You may take a walk through the main plaza of El Libertador Park which features rose gardens, water fountains, and the neo-Gothic Basilica of the Immaculate Conception.

 

Day 2 - Jardin to Santa Rosa de Cabal

Recommended Hotel: Visperas

 

Wake up and drive to the town of Santa Rosa de Cabal and go for a swim in the hot springs that are located nearby. The centerpiece of the hot springs is the nearly 100-foot tall waterfall that cascades down the rocks along the water's edge. Believe me, it's a really cool place.

 

 

Day 3 -  Santa Rosa to Salento 

Recommended Hotel: Reserva Monarca

 

Take a short drive to the south to Salento, a charming town

in the Andes, known for its coffee culture and beautiful scenery. You’ll have the afternoon free to roam the city. Take a walk on Calle Real, Salento’s premier road full of local craft shops and vibrant colonial architecture painted in rainbow hues. Just a short drive away, you may also visit Cocora Valley where the world's tallest palm trees look like the whimsical kind of plant you'd find in a Dr. Seuss story.

 

Now, normally people say "Take a walk up to the lookout point and check out the beautiful scenery" but the hotel that I use for this trip is amazing and has a view of the area that is like being in heaven. So, you can skip walking up all the steps to the lookout point and instead, be served a great meal on the hotel balcony while taking in one of the most spectacular views ever.

Day 4 - Salento to Manizales

Recommended Hotel: Termales de Ruiz

Today we can either spend the day drinking coffee and relaxing in Manizales and taking a ride on the famous cable car. Riders get a  birds-eye view of the city and various neighborhoods. Plus unblocked views of the surrounding mountains.before climbing up in altitude to ride 

 

Another option is climbing in altitude and exploring the edge of Los Nevados del Ruiz, an active stratovolcano.

 

Day 5 Manizales to Medellin

 

Today we make our departure back to our home base in Medellin. Winding back through the mountains we will stop for lunch for a scenic lunch outside the town of Venecia.
