By far the best country I have visited. From the food, culture, history and environment it will always be my number one place. If you're on a budget you cannot get better than this. The climate is perfect. One suggestion if you don't speak Spanish bring someone that does with you. And by all means LEAVE THE SANDALS AT HOME IF YOURE A MALE. That's how they can tell right away if you're s tourist or not lol.

Medellín I such a nice city. The weather is just right. Taxis are not very expensive. Take public transportation is an adventure. Locals are so kind. Food is great. There are lots of outdoor activities and nature. It is close to small towns like Guatapé or Santafe de Antioquía among others.

What a wonderful city. The local food is delicious. Also, the native fruits are to die for. The people of Medellin are the friendliest people I’ve ever met. The customer service skills of the people in managing are far more than perfect. No matter where you are, the view of the mountains is spectacular;Not to mention the weather is phenomenal.
