Travel Blogs from Medellin
... we were Colombian or not until we spoke. When we made it to the metro cart it was nice. The views overlooking the mountains and slums were very interesting. This is where we meet our new friend Wilson. When the metro cart took off fast like a roller coaster both Tiff and I screamed and he began to laugh. This is how Wilson became our amigo. He didn't speak english but he understood enough for us to have conversations and jokes. He was awesome! From Bogota and works in Medellin. ...

Unlike La Hacienda Hotel, Río Claro was very cheap, but the amenities were less, as was in the midst of nature. Like the food and service were very good.
On December 24 in the evening, I was going back to Medellin, when I get home unload the bag, i greeted and I went to bed.
Both were absolutely fantastic experience, outdoor and with a warm climate.
