Anyone who’s visiting Medellin will have plenty of ways to occupy their time. There are Medellin tours, museums and parks, and enough local cuisine to keep any foodie busy for days. However, some people decide to spend some time away from the city to enjoy the beauty of the region’s natural surroundings. In this case, glamping could be just the ticket. If you’re unfamiliar with the term, it’s a combination of “glamor” and “camping”. Glamping may be partly named after camping, but the two things are actually pretty different. Essentially, glamping is where you stay in top-notch accommodations that just happen to be tents or domes, and that come with scenic views and a variety of amenities. If you’re staying in some of Medellin’s best glamping sites, you could enjoy amenities like chef-prepared meals, kayaking, massages, jacuzzis, and more.
