Not During Holiday

Location:

Medellin with kids

I was in Medellin during Xmas holidays with my 3 years old daughter.We went to visit the famous Parque Explora ( www.parqueexplora.org)on the 31st of Dicember but it was closed at 2.00 pm. We returned on the 2nd of January and it was a disaster.The park it is not prepared to receive so many visitors as you usually have during shool holidays...We had to wait 1 hour to buy tickets and then 2 hours to have food at the restaurant. The park itself is very interesting but try to avoid weekends and holiday seasons unless you are happy to queue a lot.We also went to an other park Parque de los Pies Descalzos es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parque_de_los_Pies_Descalzos and it was a very new and pleasant experience with kids and families: well organized and also free. We had lunch at the Bottero Museum and the food and the service were very good. If you need to move around you can use the Metro that is quite child friendly. Overall Medellin is a great place to visit but with kids can be a bit triky especially during holiday seasons.

Further Information

Travel tips: The pushchair is not always easy to use since the pavement is not always there.Bus and the center of town could be dangerous for little crimes.Once you are in the center where there is the FANTASTIC Bottero museum you should go also to the Astor www.elastor.com.co/home.php for a great experience.
Must see/do at this place: Bottero Museum
