Medellín

Medellín

Colombia’s second city couldn’t be more different from the capital, Bogota. Dubbed ‘the city of eternal spring’, the weather is always warm and pleasant and the vibrant streets, bustling centre and welcoming charm of the city’s inhabitants – famous for their hospitality – are enough to make any traveller feel immediately at home. Medellin is modern yet traditional at the same time, where both tall skyscrapers and conventional single-story neighborhoods co-exist. The story here is one of transformation, from one of the world’s most dangerous cities to one of South America’s major tech-hubs and winner of the Wall Street Journal’s 2012 Most Innovative City award. Whether you’re exploring the city’s trendy barrios or humble comunas, or venturing to nearby colonial towns, flower-growing villages or stunning lakes, you’ll be learning about Colombia’s recent history and letting go of many preconceptions along the way.
