I was able to spend a weekend in Jardín during my time in Colombia and it was magical. The town itself is small, but no matter where you find yourself in this part of Antioquia, you’ll be surrounded by stunning green mountains. While it’s a great place to just relax and lay low, Jardín is also perfect for enjoying some of Colombia’s stunning nature. During my trip, I got to tour several coffee farms up in the mountains—on a horse! I definitely recommend visiting if you’re already in Medellín or Antioquia.
