Travel Tips for Medellín

Pueblito Paisa - the little church

by Trekki

As already mentioned, in the center of the horseshoe shaped pueblito is a little church, also in the old style. You can visit it, it is open until all shops and restaurants close.

Paisa, by the way, is the name of Antioquian’s inhabitants, the name derives from “pais” = the land.

It must be lovely to be up here during Christmas time. I once saw a photo in a magazin, Christmas decorations all over and magically illuminated.

Go see the Piedra de El Peñol

by rafgys

If you have a morning / afternoon to spare around Medellin ... you must go to the Piedra de El Peñol (it's also called Peñon de Guatapé).

It's one of the most espectacular views I've seen in all my travels!!

Biking on Sundays

by MalenaN

As in many other places in Colombia you will on Sundays see many people in , or outside, Medellín on a bicycle. On the photo you can see how a major road next to Caribe metro station has been closed for motor vehicles on a Sunday and it is taken over by cyclists, pedestrians and joggers. Also along the road to San Felix (outside Medellín) the bus passed many cyclists and as the road is mostly going uphill it is very good exercise.

A well run city

by MrRandMcnally

"Not the Pablo Years stereotype"

When people say "Medellin, Colombia" images of violence, running gun battles and Pablo Escobar come to mind. This is a long way from the truth.

Medellin is a clean well organized city with great public art, public universities and public spaces. While there are dangerous neighborhoods up on the mountians, and the crime and murder rates are a bit higher than Bogota, it is hard to imagine that Medellin will be the worlds murder capitol again.

"A economic center"

Medellin is now an economic center for Colombia with Textiles and Flowers leading the way. The city is vibrant and well run with massive public works programs built to help the poor and shelters built to house the homeless. You will note that begging is almost nonexistant in comparison with Bogota. While I love Bogota, I admit that given the chioce in living in Bogota again or trying out Medellin, I'd move to Medellin.
