Medellin & Nuqui Holidays

Located about 400 km to the northwest of the capital Bogota, Medellin is Colombia’s second most important city and well worth a visit. Within the surrounding mountaineous Antioquia province, the colouful town of Guatape and the mysterious El Peñol rock are well worth a visit along with the picturesque colonial city of Santa Fe de Antioquia. The remote villages and beaches of the Nuqui region can be reached by air from Medellin on a short 50 minute flight, ideal for those wanting an off the beaten track experience within an eco lodge with whale watching opportunities. 

Medellin 

Located deep in the fertile and mountainous Aburra Valley in the central Andean highlands, Medellin is Colombia's second largest city. Originally Medellin was a modest, humble town which is evident from it colonial buildings that have fallen into disrepair, and whose origins date back to the coffee boom of the 20th Century. Home to more than three million residents, Medellin is now a modern and vibrant city remaining true to its regional characteristics with its beautiful natural scenery. Surrounded on all four sides by mountainous peaks there are stunning views everywhere you look. Medellin has now become a bustling city of industry and commerce, especially textile manufacturing and a very brisk business in cut flowers. Nicknamed the City of Eternal Spring, Medellin benefits from a temperature climate. 

Nuqui

Nuqui is the Pacific coast's Eden, where sea and jungle fuse into one of the most spectacular natural landscapes in Colombia. Located in the northern region of the Pacific coast on the Gulf of Tribuga, Nuqui is the ideal place for those who love bird watching, fishing and acres of unspoilt nature. It has inspired poets and artists for centuries offering incredible views of exuberant forest, beaches, waterfalls, exotic plants and curious wildlife in one of the richest, diverse ecosystems on earth. Between early June and October visitors to the region can observe humpback whales. Due to its warm, calm waters the area is a safe haven for mothers and their newborn calfs.
