#4 of 14 in Wildlife in Antioquia Department
Explore Parque Tematico Hacienda Napoles, the estate of the infamous Colombian drug kingpin, Pablo Escobar. After his death in 1993, the luxurious 20 sq km (7.7 sq mi) complex fell into the hands of the government and is now open to the public. The mansion he lived in was partially demolished, and the estate was turned into a theme park. Visit the small museum and learn about Escobar’s life. As you explore the eclectic compound, you can see rare trees and plants, admire the butterfly garden, lounge by the pool, and view a replica of Escobar’s first airplane.

    The place is quite large, it is necessary to go in vehicle, either truck or bike to finish the race, instead bring money to do it by means of motorcycle taxis or trolleys that are located at the entrance of the place, otherwise walking It would not be feasible to do this because it is very large and the heat is strong enough. There are different places to eat, and there are several very nice pools. Overall the place was good.

    For travel we imagined we see more "zafari type" animals, suggests that they are doing maintenance on the road in some sections of the route; They are some unfinished work in Victoria falls in the area of the trail (lifting of wall protruding rods, increased risk of an accident), very good wet areas and restaurant.

    This place is good for children and for adults. The water park is great specially because is usually very hot in the area and you can go in there and get cool down. If you like birds this is a place you must check out.

    The zoo is amazing, just to be inside is amazing. There are 3 museums inside with photos. The price depends if you go ibto the pools, get hotel or just the day trip. Also guided tours available. You can walk thru the park or do the guided tour.

    It a wide place, the Hacienda Nápoles it's beautiful and fixed for receive many people with family and friends. They offer aquatic attractions, animals, food zone, restaurants, transportation from the entrance to the jurassic Park entrance. For full access you must buy a ticket around 70000 COP. If you have transportation it's better but the park offers bicycle rental around 6500 COP per hour.

    If you are looking for a wonderful time where you can see animals in the "wild" and water parks this is for you! We had a blast and the animals look so much happier than in a traditional zoo. The route of the park is HUGE and the animals all have large areas of land to run around in. There are 2 water parks area 1 more kid friendly and the other is full of slides and more adult fun. The restaurant can be a little pricey for a full family, but for the 2 of us it was fine. It is huge vast acres of land and they are still adding more and developing it, but it was very clean. The roads are a bit bumpy, small cars beware. It is safari themed though so... Warning: If you're looking for some kind of Pablo Escobar themed park or weird tribute this isn't the place for you. The message of the park is that they were able to turn something horrible into a postive. Escobar is not a hero for Colombians, he's a blemish on their history. If that's what you're looking for don't bother.
