TLDR? In just six and a half hours, you can be in Caucasia, Antioquia!
Despite being a small town, you’ll find different activities to do during your stay in Caucasia.
Caucasia is a small fishing town, six and a half hours from Medellin by road. It’s known for its typical seafood, Ciénagas, and the Cauca River that runs through it.
If you’re interested in traveling and adding this unmissable town to your tourist list, I’ll give you several indications on how to get there!
Where Is Caucasia?
To go to Caucasia, you need a whole weekend that hopefully includes some Colombian holiday to allow you to stay longer.
It’s approximately six and a half hours from Medellín. It may seem like a long trip at first glance, but Caucasia’s well worth visiting, like every corner of Antioquia.
The ideal time to rest and enjoy Caucasia without haste is to spend three days and two nights. This way, you can have a rest after the trip, get to know the different places, and regain energy to start the return trip.
How to Get To Caucasia From Medellin
Caucasia is a small town without a nearby airport, so you’ll have to rule out flying there.
However, there are other convenient options that you can choose from depending on your travel budget and itinerary.
Rent a Car
Medellín has different and good places to rent a car. It isn’t such an expensive option; however, it does have a higher cost than traveling by bus.
Colombian traffic regulations allow you to drive as long as you have a certified license from your country, so don’t worry about that.
I recommend you take a shorter route first to get to know Colombian roads, their signs, and how to recognize their speed limits (here, you must drive a little more slowly).
Additionally, due to the mountainous areas, it’s common to lose the signal at different points. I suggest you download the instructions on how to get there so as not to get lost. You also shouldn’t travel at night because it could be dangerous.
Choose a good car, preferably a small and cheaper, but also an almost new one. Ask for directions on gasoline and what to do in case you need a spare part.
Bus from Medellin
I have told you before that in Colombia, the cheapest option to travel will always be to take a bus.
To take the bus to Caucasia, you can buy your tickets online on the pages of the buses that take you directly to the town. There are comfortable options with different services.
You can also get the tickets at the box office, but you’ll have fewer options.
