I had read a lot about this place and was a little disappointed. The best part was taking the cable car up to the park, but keep in mind that the line you switch to to get to the park is more expensive than the regular one. It's much colder in the park than in the city so bring warmer clothes. There are different trails you can walk in the park, but for us that traveled around Colombia and saw some amazing stuff the park had little to offer.
The gondola ride up is nice, but park was not what we were looking for. You have to take guided tours to be allowed into the park. If you just want to go for a walk on you own, stay away: only option is to walk along a boring street outside the real park where you will meet speeding buses in corners and barbed wires left and right.
This is an incredible place. You can share here with your couple, your family or friends enjoying of beautiful landscapes. Even if you want to go alone for having some time of relax you can do it and find peace and calm between all this vegetation. You're able to do many activities here, such as taking pictures, go on bicycle for finding new places or just walking around for breathing fresh air and delight yourself with the view. It's 100% guarantee that you will enjoy your visit to Parque Arví.
This place is amazing, so family friendly and also pet friendly. Tip: if you want to enjoy all the amenities of the park you must be there as early as possible. They only have room for 600 people in the area of activities. But you have so much to do all around. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Overall the park is awesome.
What a paradise. Natural park located in the rural area known as Santa Elena. Three ways to get there, one is following the trail, but the other two are by bus from Medellin and perhaps the most popular and affordable is using the elegant and well organized skyline. At the top there are booths with food, drinks, art crafts and information. As you walk you enjoy the excellent landscape -if you're not familiar with the area is recommended use guides-, also along the way there are more places to eat delicious food and taste the different forms of colombian coffee. Highly recommended!
