We took the metro and then the cable car, which is part of the metro system, up the hill to Parque Arvi. There is a butterfly museum there that we wanted to go to but unfortunately the last portion of the cable car wasn't running so we just checked out the view and went back down.
We were warned that all of the museums and attractions shut down on Mondays so, we decided to take a trip to Guatape. We had read about Guatape, a small resort town about a 2 hour bus ride from Medellin on several travel blogs and every one of them loved the place. Maybe our expectations were too high but there was a very odd feeling in the town. It was quaint, but it felt as though they were really sick of tourists and were just putting up with us because we were somewhat helpful to their economy. The main square was set up for a 200th celebration so maybe they had celebrated long into the night and were just tired,...
Chloe refers to Guatape as "Toyland". Very colourful with handpainted decorations on all of the buildings. Chloe wants me to tell you that it felt weird colourful, not good colourful.
"the rock" with the stairs we climbed up.
Back in Medellin we went to the science museum (quite similar to telus world of science with all of the hands on activities) and wandered around the downtown area. My favourite were the Botero statues in the main square.
