Parque Arví Ropes Course

Parque Arví/Comfama Ropes Course – Parque Arví is both an ecological nature preserve and Pre-Hispanic archaeological site.  It covers 16,000 hectares, 1,760 of which are in the state of natural forests.  It is equipped with 54 miles of navigable trails and is a major tourist attraction, known for its wildflowers, butterflies, birds and trails.  Located within the Parque Arví boundaries is another park called Parque Comfama, which is designated as an ecological science center; mainly centered around youth science experiments.  In addition, Parque Comfama is home to one of the best ropes courses in Colombia. The eight different routes with varying levels of difficulties contain obstacles, zip-lines and other challenges that you navigate by yourself (after the safety course).  It’s great!
