Río Claro

Río Claro in Antioquia is a Rio Claro Antioquialarge nature reserve located between Medellín and Bogotá (5 hours from Bogotá, 3 hours from Medellín). Not only is the river stunning and the views spectacular, there’s also a great deal of activities for you to get involved in, making it the perfect place to break up your journey from Bogotá to Medellín or vice versa.

Río Claro has been voted by Colombians as one of the the county’s most beautiful rivers. It’s the place to go if you’ve ever dreamed of escaping city life for something all together more peaceful; swimming or sailing in rivers surrounded by nothing but trees.

You can find a number of small beaches dotted around the shores of the river, perfect for relaxing and soaking up the sun.

One of the best things you can do in Río Claro is to explore the area and enjoy its amazing spots like Playa del Mármol, Playa del Manantial, the Time Temple and its misterious caves or Las Dantas well.

Activities include swimming in the clear waters of the lake, hiking in the rainforest, caving, kayaking, rafting, zip lining and bird watching (Colombia has the largest selection of bird life in the world, and this is a great place to observe them).

Of course, if that doesn’t sound appealing, as mentioned there’s plenty else to do. While nothing will be quite as adventurous as you’ll find in places like San Gil, the options are suitable for all levels so even those intimidated by adventure sports in Colombia will be encouraged to participate.

The caving in Río Claro is one of the most popular activities on offer. Although it’s still relatively easy, you will need to jump, swim and prepare to get very wet. Rafting is also popular (rapids are at most grade 2), as is kayaking. The route is more or less calm the entire journey and you’ll get to see some stunning scenery along the way.
