Keeping this in mind, you may want to consider these 3 recommended activities that are mostly kids-oriented and something they’ll definitely remember and will want to revisit when you get back home.
Las Aguas Park
Las Aguas is considered one of the most complete water parks in South America, due to its impressive facilities in the middle of The Andes (just a few minutes away from Medellín), and because it combines both cultural and natural attractions, with an amazing set of swimming pools and waterslides that your kids will simply love.
You may actually consider a 2-day visit to Las Aguas, because one day may not be enough and, trust me, you want to get the whole experience since this place is full of fun and magic.
The first thing that captures your attention when you visit this Science And Technology Park /Aquarium/Planetarium is its imposing and very futuristic design which makes it virtually unmistakable.
And once you’re inside, you and especially your kids will get to enjoy an unforgettable educational experience that will show them a large number of fun facts about the latest scientific discoveries and other related information about the life of fauna and flora.
When it comes to children-appropriate fun, theme parks are definitely amongst the activities preferred by the littles, and Medellin has one that is very unique because it combines a wide variety of attractions that go from the classic rollercoasters and “hammers”, to state-of-the-art simulation games your kids will truly enjoy.
When visiting Northern Park, it is recommended that you arrive early in the morning so you have enough time to enjoy all the rides, and also that you get comfortable shoes and clothing, as well as proper hydration because the park is hot and you must walk a lot.
These options are just a tiny sample of all Medellin has to offer when coming as a tourist. There are so many other things to do, but I am sure that once you get there for the first time, you will definitely want more and more… And Medellin is always happy to welcome you and your family!
