Medellin was once dubbed 'The Most Dangerous City in Colombia'. For some, Medellin is still remembered for its association with the infamous drug lord Pablo Esobar. This is the place where he operated his notorious drug cartel, during the 70s right through to the 80s. Much has changed since then. The city has transformed into a destination popular with tourists worldwide, for its natural beauty, annual festivals and colorful culture.

The Parque Explora contains South America's largest freshwater aquarium. There is an outdoor park here too, with interactive games for children to enjoy and learn about the laws of physics.
