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.

Enjoyable family day out

My children loved this trip and it was a nice day spent as a family. It is quite far from Medellin, but the scenery was breathtaking on the drive up there, we stopped for breakfast which I thought was alright, but my children (aged 8,10,13 and 15) did not like the local food. The water parks were most fun, and clean also, my children had the best time. At the zoo you can get quite close to some animals such as ostriches and zebras that had space to roam free. I did have problem with the condition of how some of the animals were kept, some didn’t seem in too good condition, and the lions and pumas, which obviously must be encaged didn’t seem to have much space. My kids fell in love with an otter that was in quite a small tank, and more worryingly was alone. I felt so sad that this animal must spend his life alone in captivity. Some animals had a decent environment, others did not I wish the zoo would look at options to changing this.
