Parque Recreativo Comfama Rionegro

Reviewed By Guillermo v

It has everything that little kids like... attractions, swimmingpool and even a little farm. the park is pretty big but does not have a lot of real attractions. I was with my girlfriend there and we pretty quickly finished with walking around. the food is good, the live show funny if you understand it. all in all a family park instead of a allround park. You got kids? GO! You got a dog, a backpack and a bottle of beer? Stay on the streets! ;-)

Parque de Marinilla

Reviewed By KathmanduMazza - Kathmandu

The little park in the main square of Marinilla, located just in front of the church, seems to be the hub of the town. Cafes and shops line the square. The park offers welcome shade and is a nice space to sit a few minutes and shelter from the sun. Just passing through on the way to Gutape, this was a welcome break and an interesting place to stop a few minutes.

Iglesia San Antonio de Pereira

Reviewed By S G - Brasileia, AC

A wonderfully quaint church surrounded by all the culture, activities and genuine people of this pueblo. A Sunday misa followed by almuerzo at a quaint restaurant in the town square makes a visit to Iglesia San Antonio a "don't miss it" experience!

Capilla Siglo IXX

Reviewed By KathmanduMazza - Kathmandu

On the way to Gutape, we stopped for 30 minutes at this small town. With time to walk around the main square, admire the church and explore a little some of the side streets, as well as a nice break, it was interesting to visit a small town like this. With a wedding, people going about their usual (Saturday) business, it was a nice insight to Colombian life.

I'am from Medellin and came to visit my family. I wanted to show the town and the ceramics and buy some presents. Prices were so high and in most cases are not worth it

Giovanni (the owner) makes this a very memorable experience. He's super easy to reach via Whatsapp and is very responsive. He's fluent in English, so feel free to reach out with questions or to reserve your spot.
I've had some tremendous experiences throughout Colombia but the ATV experience will always be memorable. Giovanni will tell/teach you everything you need to know before you leave and his team of guides are excellent. I never get tired of the views from Rio Negro and the air is so fresh.
Here is a tip. If you don't want to get your clothes muddy, head to Jumbo (it's kind of like Super Target in the states). You can buy a pair of $9 jeans from a brand called URB. Throw on jeans and a lightweight, long sleeve shirt and you'll be great.
Definitely do this before you leave Medellin.
