Once we’ve finished our bike trip, we will spend the next two nights in Gutapé. The wonderful village is known for it’s La Piedra (translating bluntly as “gigantic rock”), which has a staircase deep in the crevice of the sheer mountain face. In the evening we’ll have a welcome dinner, with complimentary drinks.
Day 3: Paragliding and Hiking
Our third day is jam-packed with adventure! Beginning with a one-hour trip out of Guatapé to Cocorna, we’ll embark on a world-class paragliding experience. Paragliding is a popular sport around Medellin due to the perfect climate conditions of warm air rising out of the valley and jaw-dropping views. Flying tandem with a pilot, you’ll soar over the landscape in an unforgettable fashion.
Paragliding isn’t the only thing Cocorna has to offer. From zip-lining and waterfall-laden hikes, there are activities aplenty to satisfy your Latin American experience. Later, we return back to Guatapé and our deluxe accommodations, where you can make the most of the massage and spa facilities before another delicious dinner.

Whether it’s drifting along the waters or soaring through a zip line, the activities of Rio Claro never cease to amaze.
