Know More about this tour

Once your bilingual guide has met at your hotel, tour heads south just minutes away on a personalized journey by private car (with AC) towards Envigado municipality where Pablo Escobar grew up. Once at Envigado, tour stops at Pablos personal prison where everything started back in June 1992. There is enough time to walk around and take amazing photos of the spectacular city views and the old prison which includes a rotatory bed where Pablo slept, a helipad, and several dorms. Feel free to use bathrooms and get ready for a couple of hours walk down the secret route that set Pablo free only 13 months after entering the Cathedral.

You dont need special skills to follow this route as there is moderate walking and your private guide will escort you all the way while answering questions and providing full information that will allow you to fully absorb the local atmosphere. Stops can be made along the way if you want to stretch legs or take photos of the panoramic views, so feel free to ask your guide whenever you consider convenient.

First stop after a couple of kilometers involves the secret hillside where Pablo and his staff rested overnight in order to cheat the local army who was all over the jail and surroundings, lay back and enjoy fresh mountain air as your professional guide fills you with anecdotes about those dark days.

When you are ready to continue just let guide know, and get ready because just minutes away you will be entering one of the most spectacular reservoirs known as La Miel. Share soothing sceneries and get closer to wildlife as you keep walking away of Pablos prison. This is the perfect hands on approach where to experiment and put yourself in Pablos shoes. Feel the rush and adrenaline as if you were Pablo while your guide leads along natural paths and gets closer to civilization.

There are a couple of creeks down the hill where stops are made and you will be able to dive in or just relax listening to the freezing water run down the Medellin valleys. Finally, your private guide will pick you up again at an agreed location where the walk ends and you are driven back to your hotel or any other location you suggest.
