We'll start our day with a lunch in Envigado, a town southeast of Medellin which has a nice town square. After lunch, we'll go by car/jeep (depending on the size of the group) to a monastery called "Monasterio Santa Gertrudis La Magna" (located in Arenales), which used to be the prison (a.k.a. "Hotel Escobar" or "Club Medellín") that was built to specifications ordered by Medellín Cartel leader Pablo Escobar. For those who've seen the Netflix series Narcos, will most likely recognize the site as well as the surrounding nature. We'll take some time to enjoy the view of the city from the Helipad that was frequently used for visitors of Pablo Escobar during his "prison sentence". From there we'll start a small hike up a slope through pine forests where we'll stop for a snack at a tree swing with another great view. We'll continue a descent towards the Angel Falls waterfall (Cascada Salto Del Angel), a beautiful place, full of nature and and isolated from contamination and human impact. The waterfall is totally secluded and best of all, it has a deep swimming hole. After having enjoyed the nature, we'll go back to the city for a small beer tasting at a local craft brewery!
Hi there! My name is Ruben, I'm 32 years old, born in the Netherlands and raised in Belgium. Having lived in many places around the world, I'm currently based in Medellin. I'd like to share my passion for nature and the art of brewing beer by inviting you to visit a secluded waterfall and a Colombian craft brewery, together with Yenifer, my Paisa girlfriend (born and raised in Medellin). Hope to meet you soon!
