What you'll do

This is an opportunity to explore the beautiful natural surroundings of Medellín just 25 minutes by bus from the city. On this experience, I will take you to my favorite natural spot: an incredible waterfall inside a tropical forest. It is located in a natural reserve where there is a large number of bird species, butterflies and even little mammals. We will start by taking a bus from Envigado metro station that will take us to the start of our hike. From here we will have 1 hour walking one way to the hidden waterfall. We will immerse ourselves in the beautiful nature and surroundings. We will have some snacks and you can even go for a swim if you are looking for a full energetic bath on the crystalline cold waters. After that is all about enjoying the place and some minutes of meditation if you wish. I personally love doing it with some breathing exercises. I invite you to share this beautiful and unexplored spot with me!
Other things to note
Please be at 8:45 am so we are on time for the 9:00 am bus. If we miss that we have to wait for 30 minutes more.
Remember to wear sport or hiking shoes that can get wet.
The hike is about level 3 but it has two spots level 4. You don't need experience to do it.

After traveling for a while I realized the potential my city had. I started to study a lot and have been working as a tour guide for over a year now with more than 3 companies and now I'm starting my own called Nomad. I just finished a Technology on tourism guidance to become a professional on the field and I have assisted to 3 boot camps to learn how to develop touristic experiences. I'm convinced that sustainable tourism can make Colombia a better place. I know I can help bring progress to communities I visit with my guests and that benefit can be for both sides.

Andres becomes your immediate friend. The hike was beautiful, through lush jungle and across streams -- yes, your feet will get wet, at one point water was nearly at my knees! But it was a lot of fun and refreshing on a hot day. The waterfall is beautiful and taking a dip is wonderful. We had a great group, four total including Andres. There's no way you'd find this place on your own, there are at least 5-7 river crossings and numerous pathways. Thanks for a great trip, Andres!

Was such a great hike with Andres through the most beautiful trail with incredible, lush scenery the entire way. The swim at the waterfall at the end was so much fun and we had it all to ourselves on a sunny Saturday morning, ayo! Andre was an awesome guide through it all and made the hike super interesting with great, knowledgeable conversation. Highly recommended!

Andres was an amazing guide to an amazing hidden waterfall! I would never find that by myself in the jungle. The hike was great trough a small river and the enormous jungle! Suddenly we arrived to the waterfall. Prepare for a really refreshing swim after hiking in the damp forest. It is not far from the city, but it felt really far away. A great experience, I really recommend this !

Definitely some challenging parts. Glad I bought reliable shoes. Andrés had to hold my hand a few times lol, but it was so worth it.

This was the highlight of my trip. Andres was great! He was so good that we decided to do another tour with him. Don’t miss out in this hike. I’ve never seen a more beautiful environment.
