Tamesis Travel Information
Tamesis — a 3 hour bus ride away from Medellin — is perfect for either a day trip or a few days of exploration where not many other foreigners venture.
Perched on the side of the valley above the Cauca River, Tamesis in the southwestern part of the Antioquia department is a hidden gem. It is a calm and beautiful town that seems so far removed from the rest of the country.
The region is known for its breathtaking views and wildlife, especially for its abundance of rare birds which attract birdwatchers from around the globe. Besides birdwatching and hiking, the mysterious petroglyphs — pictures carved into rock by indigenous cultures — are everywhere in the valley and definitely worth checking out.
