Medellin and Nuqui Holidays

Medellin is situated in a high valley between the central and western Andes Mountains. It is Colombia’s second largest city and was named after the village birthplace of Hernán Cortés, the Spanish conquistador who began the colonisation of South America.
 
Once known as the home of the nororious drug lord, Pablo Escobar, it is has won international recognition for its urban regeneration - most notably Communa 13 - where motor cycle paths, cable cars and escalators have been introduced that have transformed the lives of those living here. This area is now a major tourist site, with break dancing on display and some of the best graffiti in the country.
 
The sculpture park and miniature version of a traditional Colombian township on Nutibara Hill are also fascinating and offer panoramic views over the city.
 
The city is also rich in art. In front of the Antioquia Museum you can see no less than 23 large bronze statues donated to his home city by Fernando Botero, the country's most famous contemporary artist. The art-deco Palace of Fine Arts is Colombia’s second oldest museum and houses a superb collection of pre-Columbian, colonial and modern art.
 
Outside the city, a visit to climb the 740 steps up the massive El Penol Rock is not to be missed. Afterwards you can walk the streets of nearby Guatape, one of the most photogenic colonial cities in the country.
 
Colombia is the second largest producer of flowers after the Netherlands, with Medellin hosting an enormous Flower Festival once a year. You can take a day trip to visit one of these flower farms. You can also take a tango tour and have fun being guided through the best musical venues and the monuments to the great exponents of the dance and of course fantastic live shows. A histro-musical experience not to be missed. Download our Colombia brochure (PDF 0.5 Mb)
 
ALL OUR MEDELLIN HOLIDAYS ARE FINANCIALLY PROTECTED wherever in the world you live. Selling holidays for over 15 years.
Colombia has an infamous history of drug trafficking and Pablo Escobar was the king of the drug lords. He was also an enigmatic philanthropist, building schools and hospitals with his ill-gotten $25 billion fortune. The history tour of his life and haunts offers a chilling but gripping insight into this violent and formative period of Colombia’s past.
 
On the Pacific Coast 200 miles from Medellin lies Nuqui. This is a small municipality of only 8000 mostly Afro-Colombians but it includes magnificent pristine rainforest and beaches. Chief among these is Guachalito, which has stunning verdant jungle descending straight onto chocolate coloured sand. This is one of the world’s great bio-diverse hotspots and the marine and forest life is truly breath-taking. You can watch the whales and the surfers or canoe inland through mango forest to visit the local indigenous communities. The region is increasingly popular with visitors but it still retains its wild space and tranquillity.
