Travel Tips for Medellín
A typical breakfast in Medellín consists of baked corn arepas which is a flat unsweetened corn pancake topped with butter and fresh white cheese, coffee or hot chocolate. This is also typical in Bogota. Another favourite of mine is Refajo which is a mix of beer and a soft drink called Colombiana. It's very refreshing especially after a day's sight seeing.
Medellin in Christmas
These city is amazing during Christmas. You can see the whole city full of lights, Christmas trees, every building and house with the proper Christmas decoration.
Walking along the Medellin River at night is a Must see activity, is great.
Overlooking Parque Bolívar is the Medellín's cathedral, Catedral Metropolitana, the city's largest place of worship. This impressive structure stands behind a fountain at the end of the square. It is one of the biggest brick buildings in whole South America, using more than 1,2 million bricks in an attractive neo-Romanesque design. The cathedral was designed by various architects which is reflected in an interesting mixture of influences. Construction began in 1875 and was completed only in 1931.
The inside of this spacious cathedral is rather dark. Walls are decorated with paintings by Gregorio Vásquez de Arce y Ceballos and huge stained-glass windows glow in a number of colours. The cathedral generally remains open during the day but closes at night.
Medellín has park for nearly every social class. If you need to get away from the busy and noisy Parque Bolívar or the upscale trendy bars of Parque Lleras, you should find your way to Parque Poblado, which is the middle class version of the latter. Iglesia San Jose del Poblado in the main square of the district marks the place where Medellín was founded in 1616.
I passed by Parque Poblado every day, it was half way between metro station Poblado and Hostal Tamarindo. The park during the day has little to offer. There are shops around Calle 10 and some nice antique shops around, and it's a fine place for a little lunch and coffee-sipping.
However, it gets bustling with life at night when groups of youth visit the park and the surrounding bars. The place is especially lively on weekend nights when people gather around Parque Poblado until dawn drinking, smoking and chatting. You can buy cigarettes, food and drinks from street vendors the whole night. There are some nice bars at the bottom of the park where you can listen to vallenato or reggae.
