Welcome to Jardín
At the center of town life is the breezy cobblestone plaza dominated by the immense neo-Gothic Basilica Menor de la Inmaculada Concepción. It is chock-full of colorful wooden tables and chairs where fruit sellers hawk delicious cocktails and old-timers converse between measured sips of coffee. In the evenings it seems like the entire community comes out to socialize over a drink. While on weekends the town is flooded with visitors from Medellín, the rest of the week it's still full of ye olde colonial charm.
Beyond the small-town Colombia of Jardín lies spectacular countryside with hidden caves, waterfalls and top-notch bird-watching, as well as a wide array of adventure-sport opportunities.
