  • From Medellín: Hacienda Nápoles Theme Park Day Trip

    1. From Medellín: Hacienda Nápoles Theme Park Day Trip

    Enjoy Pablo Escobar's former farm that has been transformed into a theme park to be enjoyed by everyone from kids to adults. When entering Hacienda Nápoles, you will encounter a world of fun with pools for the family, lazy river, Safari with wild animals, Dinosaur replicas, bird world, African museum, and much more. You will also be shown Escobar's main house, known as La Mayoría. Visit the Memorial Museum, where you will learn about the life of the drug lord and see the first airplane he used to send drugs abroad. Explore different wildlife habitats and be amazed as you encounter tigers, elephants and other creatures from the wild. The tour will last throughout the whole day as it is a long way from Medellin, but expect lots of fun! There will be breakfast included and plenty of places to eat lunch at the park.

    Excellent trip, very well organized. Even though I don't speak Spanish and joined a Spanish-language tour, it was worthwhile to join for transportation to Hacienda Napoles in a comfortable bus, with good meal stops. The guide spoke some English, so I was able to follow along, but generally relied on my own research and park maps to get around. It would have been much trickier to arrange independently, so I was glad to have pick-up and drop-off by private bus. It's a very long day, but plenty to see and do at Hacienda Napoles.

Enjoy a safari drive and see the animals from all over the world that Pablo imported. Get a chance to walk through the areas of the theme park and see items from Pablo’s life. Spot his private car collection that was incinerated by a feuding cartel during the war. See where his mansion once stood and visit the museum with several rare photos from his life. One of the main attractions you’ll see are the famous hippos that Pablo brought from Africa. Witness them in their natural habitat.
