Trip to the magic river
We will swim, jump into it and will have lunch at the side.
This expedition will be to a rural area of Cocorná, Antioquia located at 2,5 hours from Medellín. During the the ñast two decades this town was a victim of a big wave of violence. After thousands of victims of forced displacement (people forced to leave their lands) and many other crimes that took the peace away, today people live a very different reality, the crystalline waters flow in peace just like its people.
We will make an expedition to a place that recovered itself and is now showing its magic to the world.
We will walk with a farmer of the area through incredible landscapes and will finally make it to El Melcocho river known to have one the cleanest waters of the region. We will swim, jump into it and will have lunch at the side.
This is a territory of resilience that is reinventing himself. Definitely, a place you have to visit!
