Rio claro

The Río Claro Nature Reserve is a ridiculously stunning place near Medellín .

Anyway, this reserve is full of  great wildlife in which you can find a great variety of animal species and where the sounds of these replaces the noise of the city. Another of the impressive things that you will find here and that make it one of the unique places in Antioquia to know is the beautiful river so clear that it shows its natural marble floor .
