Medellin and Nuqui Holidays

Medellin is Colombia’s second largest city, with 2.5 million people. It’s named after the village birthplace of Hernán Cortés, the Spanish conquistador who began the colonisation of South America. This is a modern, beautiful and thriving place. It has won international recognition for its innovation, especially with its public transport systems and public parks. Getting around is a pleasure in itself!
 
The city is rich in art. In front of the Museo de Antioquia you can see no less than 23 large bronze statues by the famous local artist Fernando Botero. The beautiful Art Deco Palacio Municipal, Colombia’s second oldest museum, houses a superb collection of pre-Columbian, colonial and modern art. The sculpture park and miniature version of a traditional Colombian township on Cerro Nutibara are fascinating. And the view from this 80 metre high hill is stunning!
 
The more adventurous can get away into the surrounding mountains and valleys on ATV’s – all terrain vehicles (quad bikes!). This is a thrilling, professionally guided adventure and by far the most exciting way to appreciate the super-scenic Colombian countryside.
 
Back in town, take the Tango tour. This is a tango city and you will have great 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)

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.
