Easy Paved Riding
Cocorná is a small town located two hours from Medellín. The town is a popular place for watersports due to its many waterfalls, swimming holes, and river tubing locations. Its warm tropical climate makes it the perfect place to take a break from the cooler climates of Medellín and spend a day paragliding or swimming.
ROUTE MAPS & NOTES
IS COLOMBIA SAFE?
The answer is a resounding YES. Colombia is exactly the opposite of what Netflix Narcos series portrays. People have to realize that Pablo Escobar was killed three decades ago. We've led hundreds of tours around the country and have never had any problems with security.
Anthony Bourdain summed it up perfectly:
"If you want to find bad people in Colombia, you can surely find them, as you could in New York or Los Angeles. But nowhere have my crew and I been treated better or with more kindness and generosity. I'd bring my family on vacation there in a heartbeat. And hope to soon. As I said before: Colombians are proud. Let them show you what they are proud of."
The trip to Cocorná is short and there are a couple of nice stops along the way. We recommend making your first stop at the Segundo Mirador De Las Palmas or Second Las Palmas Lookout Point. Located only a few minutes outside the city on your route, the lookout point offers a spectacular view across Medellín and the Aburrá Valley. If you want to grab a coffee or empanadas before heading out we recommend stopping at the Estadero El Zarzal located just a little further up the road. The route is easy and Google Maps will get you there, and all the other spots, with no trouble.
Motorcycle Trip To Cocorna
The rest of the trip takes you down the highway while passing through some of the more populated outlying towns of Rio Negro, Guarne, and Marinilla before hitting the more rural areas closer to Cocorná. There are a couple of toll booths along the way but motorcycles don't need to pay and can pass the toll using a small lane located to the right of the toll booth. The route from Medellín to Cocorná is located on the Medellín - Bogotá highway so there will be traffic on the route until you reach Cocorná.
Spectacular Views In Cocorna (Optional Paragliding)
Located on a ridge before arriving into Cocorná the Restaurante Ktarata restaurant offers amazing views of the valley and great food. You can also watch paragliders fly by your table as they circle around a nearby waterfall. The paragliding company is conveniently located next door to the restaurant. If you decide to fly we recommend eating lunch after the flight.
Extend Your Trip
Local swimming holes, called charcos, make great places to swim. Balneario El Descanso is one of the more popular spots and is located a few minutes past the restaurant. This swimming zone is easily accessible and has a small restaurant nearby. If you’re looking for a place with fewer people we recommend heading past the village of Vereda La Piñuela and checking out the numerous swimming spots located along the Río Melcocho.
The route is beautiful and the riding is easy and its tons of fun catching fish with friends. The perfect day trip from Medellin.
