When Do You Want To Go?

The city of eternal spring now experiencing a Latin summer

In the last decade Medellin has changed its spots more dramatically and with more success than any other city in the Americas. For so long one of the most dangerous cities in the world, a battleground between the drug cartel’s and home to the infamous Pablo Escobar, large parts of the city and surrounding countryside were no-go areas. Medellin is now a firm favourite amongst visitors to Colombia for reasons that might sound cliched (the friendliness of the locals, the quality of the nightlife in El Poblado and the pleasant year-round “eternal spring” temperatures) but which, like all good cliché’s, contain strong elements of truth. The city has been given an extensive makeover, and the regeneration hasn’t been limited to the center; ride the world-class cable car network out into the hills and you will see the regeneration projects going on below in the poorer areas surrounding the city.

Best time to go

Medellin is a year-round destination with a warm, pleasant climate the whole year. The week long Medellin flower festival in August is a colourful experience, as is the festival of lights at Christmas time.

Area

Medellin is situated directly in the middle of Colombia. The city is laid out north to south in the Aburrá Valley and nestled in the foothills of the Central Cordillera. El Poblado is the tourist center for accommodation and nightlife and is safe to walk around in at all times of night and day.

Latin Routes Tip

Visit the Museo Casa de la memoria to understand the past decades of violence in Colombia from the perspective of the common victims, rather than the glorified drug cartel testimonies.
