Welcome to Around Medellín


To the north of the city lies Santa Fe de Antioquia, a sleepy colonial town that was once the capital of the department. These days it attracts weekenders from Medellín looking to warm up – it's set at a mere 550m, and many hotels and restaurants have pools you can splash around in.

Three hours east of Medellín is Río Claro, a fantastic nature reserve with a peaceful river where you can go rafting or visit cathedral-sized caves full of bats.
