Radiator hoses are designed for pressure and heat, no after market solutions (tape, glue) will work long term.

Either get a replacement hose or use hose parts to repair/make your own. You can find straight/flexible lines along with aluminum connectors and elbows that will fit inside and clamped with hose clamps

There are 2 2-inch dia rubber hoses. One pumping coolant from engine to radiator, the other from radiator back to engine block.

So which one broke?

You can buy rubber hoses in eBay really cheap, like $10-15.

Remove the clamps at both ends. You dont have to remove any other parts. Just wiggle the hose and pull it out of the engine. Wiggle the new hose in to fit on engine and radiator.

You may want to replace the old clamps with worm-screw clamps. Would be easier to put in and hold stronger.
