Our Expert Guide will take you through the stories of Hacienda Napoles, a luxurious country estate with more than 1500 species of exotic animals, and symbol of the Medellin Cartel's success in the 80's. We will also visit the Clear River Canyon Nature Reserve, a conservation oasis of the last remaining tropical forests in the Central Andean Region of Colombia.
Our first stop will be the hacienda, where we will encounter three thousand hectares of natural beauty. They say it was a favorite location of Pablo Escobar, one of the biggest drug traffickers in the world, and who since childhood, dreamed of escaping poverty in his native Medellin. Within the property, we will find one of the largest zoos in Latin America, in addition to football fields, a private airport, twenty-seven artificial lakes, luxurious Italian-style houses and buildings, as well as sculptures of life-size dinosaurs. Today Hacienda Napoles has been transformed into a theme park, with the goal of overcoming the enormous historical burden Pablo Escobar left on the country of Colombia. The park has exotic animals and a unique car collection that was blown up during the cartel wars.
Afterwards, we will continue down the road towards the Clear River Canyon Nature Reserve, a true jewel of nature, where you can discover the amazingly diverse flora and fauna that thrives in the tropical forest. We'll immerse ourselves in the forest to explore the reserve's many riverside trails leading to the marble canyon, a great geological encyclopedia that tells the story of the area's exuberant wildlife.
Join us on this unique, history-filled journey, while connecting with the nature of Colombia´s spectacular countryside.
