Receive a morning pickup from your Medellín hotel. Feel free to inquire about the exact timing, as this private excursion has a flexible start time. Then continue aboard a private vehicle as you proceed south out of Medellín toward the “Cathedral,” a private prison constructed by Pablo Escobar in the early 1990s.
Enter the neighborhood of Envigado, also the scene of Pablo’s upbringing, as you head to the “Cathedral.” Explore the highlights of this upscale jail, built under the direction of the cartel boss himself, as you check out the bed used by Escobar, see the dormitories used by his associates, and view the on-site helipad.
After spending some time inside the “Cathedral,” head outside to retrace the notorious escape route used by Escobar and his crew by foot, a path they used to evade the Colombian authorities when they fled in 1993. Stop at the hidden hillside where Pablo and company laid low to avoid detection by the army, and then proceed to “La Miel,” a reservoir along the same escape route.
Continue down alongside the creeks that flow out of the Medellín hills into the valleys below, stopping to enjoy a refreshing swim or to simply bask in the brisk air that flows off the chilly water. Reconnect with your private guide at an agreed-upon location and receive a ride back to your Medellín hotel.
