I have been twice at this natural reserve. It is about 3 - 4 hours from Medellin depending if you go there on your own car or in public transportation. There are two kinds of accommodations, the traditional one and the wild one. The traditional one is allocated right in front of the the main entrance across the road to Bogota. It is made of small cabins with A/C, restaurant and swimming pools. The wild accommodation is right into the natural reserve and includes camping, hostel and lodge. About rooms at lodge they are for really natural seekers, rooms have two beds, one double and one single (other options available), bathroom and room door, I remark this because there are no windows as rooms are wide open to the rio claro canyon (check the pictures). I have enjoyed both kind of accommodations the traditional (when being with family) and the wild (when being with pals). If using the latter you must carry torch in the nights, water shoes and trekking shoes, comfortable clothes and insect repellent and the most important you must carry your adventurer spirt to trek on the trails, swim on the river, raft on it and have fun.
I recommend visit this attraction on the dry seasons, on winter river floods some trails and water gets darker (my pictures were taken during rainy season), on summers water is clear and river is safer for swimming.
Park admission is free but there are fees for activities such guided tours, rafting, rappelling or zip riding.
