Description

This overnight trip takes you to two of Antioquia’s oldest and most picturesque towns: Santa Fe de Antioquia and Jardín. Santa Fe de Antioquia is the oldest settlement of the region founded in 1541 and known as one of the towns that gave shape to Colombian cities as we know them today. The village of Jardín was officially founded in 1863 and known for its unique Church and whitewashed houses with colorfully painted doors and balconies. You will visit a traditional coffee farm and Puente de Occidente, a large suspension bridge over the Cauca River.

Itinerary

You will be driven for about 2 hours before the first stop at the Puente de Occidente (Bridge of the West), located in the Western region of Antioquia. This Bridge was considered the seventh largest suspension bridge worldwide and was declared a National Monument of Colombia in 1978. Here, you will capture magnificent panoramas of the surrounding scenery while walking above the immense River.

 
From here, you will take the local Tuk Tuk to 
Santa Fe de Antioquia where you’ll arrive at the main square and get a first impression of Antioquia’s former capital. There, you will go to have lunch and have a nice walk along traditional cobblestone streets lined with whitewashed houses.

You’ll end your first day by driving about three hours to Jardín where you will spend the night at La Casona Hotel. Make yourself comfortable in a cozy, quiet traditional house and use your free time in the evening to explore the village and visit one of its excellent restaurants (at your own expense).

The next morning you’ll start the day with a typical Colombian breakfast before going to see one of Colombia's most impressive birds the Gallito de Roca.  Afterward, you’ll stroll down the streets to have a closer look at beautifully painted houses as well as chairs that are pieces of art with hand-painted pictures on them. Then you’ll enjoy a fabulous view over Jardín when you take a gondola to the top of a mountain.

Afterward, you’ll visit a traditional coffee farm and hear about how Colombia’s finest coffee makes its way from bean to cup. You’ll learn everything from growing the beans to harvesting and processing them until they’re ready to be roasted and consumed in a delicious cup of coffee. You’ll watch the cafetero (coffee farmer) preparing the exquisite beverage while explaining different methods of brewing coffee. Then, you will have the opportunity to drink a freshly brewed coffee.

Before returning to Medellín, you’ll have a traditional lunch at the coffee farm prepared with fresh regional ingredients.

Impulse: Crafting Unforgettable Colombian Memories
★★★★★

Our trip exceeded all expectations and Impulse and in particular Felipe Cadena was instrumental in making this a memory and trip of a lifetime. Felipe listened to our travel plans, understood the family we have (children aged 8 to 17) and the type of holiday we were hoping to have. He proposed, chopped and changed the plans to suit us and work around us. Colombia was an amazing place and Impulse took us to some great places that we will never forget [...] Thank you for contributing to our wonderful memories of a fantastic Country with great people, trip of a lifetime. I cannot recommend Impulse enough in making all this happen and taking the hassle 'off my desk !'
