I liked the experience at the hacienda napoles, it has plenty of open spaces, a museums, several pools with attractions and an amazing zoo. You must have a car to move because the place is too big.

My research into Haciendo Napoles revealed its checkered history as one of Pablo Escobar's hideaways, rich with zoo animals imported from around the world. There are even YouTube videos showing him spending time here with his kids. Those days are long gone but the animals...More
