Cueva de los Guácharos

Around Medellín

A less visited cave and a great alternative to the Cueva El Esplendor excursion, Cueva de los Guácharos is reachable via a six-hour round trip from Jardín. First, your guide drives you to the Cerro de Cuchillion, from where it's a 90-minute, moderately difficult, muddy trek through splendid rainforest that arrives at a spectacular waterfall that thunders through a rocky gorge past the cave. Ask your lodgings to recommend a good trekking guide.
