  • It is an ecological reserve to 4 hours from Medellín, one day you can go, but there is also a hotel, area of camping and cabins inside the reserve or outside. It has attractions as hiking, caving and rafting, the attractions are made with a guide of the reserve but also the river can be explored freely. They have restanurante but one can bring food. The common areas are not luxurious, not be inside the hotel.

  • Perfect place to relax and connect with nature. The panoramic room of the shelter allows you to sleep comfortably close to nature because the room is not completely closed, do not have air, fan, tv and fridge, it is necessary to take lantern to go to the reception at night. The food is very good and generous. Totally recommended.

  • Clear River I go from 20 years ago and I've been in many plans, but this time I went as a guest of one of its hotels, stayed in the Hotel, the shelter cabins and then... I turned to fall in love with this place. Of course, nature will always be a very strong hook, prompting me to keep going, but now that I know what it's like to be hosted in one of the rooms, I also know that I can recommend it to many people that before it had not happened , because the amenities and attention are really good. The refuge, which is about ten minutes walk from the restaurant, the experience of going at night to seek food with my camping lamp, see the shadows of the rocks dance to my step and reach this welcoming atmosphere stayed in cabins packed with people from all over the world and eat my soup hot chicken, meat from posta in a sauce of peppers, some freshly made potato chips and a fresh salad, I drew a smile from ear to ear and gave me a taste memory more , for life. The plan to do rafting already have made several times and well, it is always a different experience. Rio Claro River is perfect for a trip to calm and landscape, is perfect to share with children or people of adulthood, having blood in the veins and desire to live life as it should be. The view from the bed, which had without making any effort, I only saw for few days, it was enough to give me the energies necessary to return to the rhythm of life in the city. Yes, I see it and I return to breathe the clean air, again I hear nothing but the sound of water flowing, the birds sing to greet me in the morning. Ahhh, this is the life we deserve, that is to what we must aspire every day, not to the asphalt, smoke and cars. I love Rio Claro, loved to stay in the refuge, I recommend. #Salí fall in love with me again clear River, one of the natural wonders more special and emblematic of Antioquia for the world, now up to you, go out to eat, to travel, to live.
