Parque Andres Bello is a hub of activity for all ages – it hosts kids’ sports clubs, zumba, yoga, tai-chi classes, has nature paths and jogging trails, as well as pick-up basketball and soccer.
The nearby Parque Metropolitano (a 10 minute drive away) is a paradise within the city for adults and kids alike, with great wildlife spotting (sloths, monkeys and birds!), jungle gyms and beautiful views over the city skyline.
Tennis courts are just a short walk away in El Carmen, crossing Via Brazil and near the Episcopal School. And the Cinta Costera is a straight shot down Federico Boyd, where you’ve got nearly 15km of running and bike trails along the water.
For gyms, check out PowerClub (high-end, membership is just under $100/month), which has great equipment and personal trainers on location, or Crossfit 507 (where membership is ~$30/month).
And, if you like to mix your running with drinking, sign up to join the Hash House Harriers, “the drinking club with a running problem,” loved by expats and locals alike, which usually departs from El Pavo Real or other nearby bars.
