As you walk out of Medellin´s International airport, get ready to explore the soothing sceneries on the way to the first stop at the cozy replica of El Peñol village, where the old town can be observed in the middle of the human made dam. There is enough free time to walk around tranquilly and take the best postcard photos, and there are bathrooms and cafeterias so we recommend bringing Colombian pesos since not every store takes cash.
