We take you on a tour to the end of the world in a country often ignored by tourists, Colombia. The fourth Latin American country, this original destination will allow you to combine discovery and relaxation.

Day 4: Medellin
A la carte breakfast at the hotel. 
Day dedicated to the visit of Medellín. Medellin, an "innovative city", has a social history that has marked its evolution over time. During the visit, we can experience the history of a city that has changed since the social crisis, which in the 1980s and 1990s produced drug trafficking. The city has since turned to progress and security, making it one of the most special and interesting cities in Colombia.

Leave by private transport accompanied by guide to two relics of the history of the drug trafficker Pablo Escobar Gaviria: the Edificio Mónaco and the Virgen Rosa Mística. During this first journey, we are explained the history and context of the social problem that led to the birth of the Medellín cartel in the 1980s and 1990s. We then take a transfer to the "Avenida del Río", which we take to the city centre, where we visit San Antonio Square, Botero Square and the Antioquia Museum. Then we take the subway to start our panoramic tour from the cable subway to the "comuna Santo Domingo Sabio". 

The city of Medellín offers a wide variety of urban arts due to the transformation that has taken place over the past 20 years. Today, the city is full of street art and its various forms of expression that the local authorities have declared to be a cultural symbol of Medellín. Graffiti is not only a history of art and culture, it is also a means of political expression. Admire the graffiti of Comuna 13, guided by one of the local artists himself! This tour gives you an insight into the daily life in this historically rich area, and makes you understand the importance of urban art for social communication and identity. Overnight at the hotel.
