Details

Kid Friendly: Yes. If they know how to ride horses but for groups with kids, I would recommend the scenic jeep ride instead of the horse ride.

Friendly: No.
You must be able to ride a horse or you may also skip the horse ride. However, some first time riders have done very well and enjoyed the trip as much as experienced ones. Also, visiting the waterfall requires going through the forest through a steep trail where average fitness is recommended.
We can offer an optional scenic jeep ride for those who prefer not to ride horses.

Maximum travelers: 6

Visit Antioquia's coziest pueblo and enjoy incredible scenery


Jardín has so much to offer far beyond the beauty of the pueblo itself and its people. I'll be delighted to show you the best of Jardín and surroundings. We'll focus on visiting a coffee farm, learning about the different processes and enjoying the best scenery in the area. Depending on availability, we could also visit a sugar cane mill and a coffee mill or both.

Itinerary

Due to the distance to this amazing destination (2. 5 hours each way), this tour requires an early pick-up, hopefully no later than 6:30 am. After driving through the Southwest main road, we should make it to Jardín's main square about 2. 5 to 3 hours later.
The order of the activities might vary depending on weather conditions.
Please note that as of October 2017, we have stopped offering the horse ride to the Splendor Cave Waterfall due to poor environmental management by the land owners. Before lunch at the coffee farm, we go for a stroll around the town including an optional coffee time at the main plaza and checking out the most interesting attractions.
A scenic jeep ride can also be offered as an optional activity for US$20 per person if there are at least 2 people on the tour.

A Recent Review of this tour

Very good tour. the scenery is very nice and Andres knows the area very well. You can stop as you please and he encourages exploration. Lots of little extras await such as eating tasty snacks and plenty of options to detour along the way such as the skylift in Jardin itself. Andres is very easy going and well read on the area he takes you to visit. don't miss the whole coffee experience from the coffee plant, harvest, packing and tasting...all available on this tour.
