Nestled in the gorgeous mountainous range of Antioquia, Medellín is renowned for being a city of progress and innovation, coupled with a thriving nightlife. The average temperature rarely fluctuates, hence the name ‘City of Eternal Spring’, and the warm climate lends itself well to plenty of outdoor activities.
Modern metrocables link the city to surrounding barrios and offer views of the Aburrá Valley below. Sculptures by Fernando Botero decorate downtown’s Botero Plaza, while the Museo de Antioquia displays more of the Colombian artist’s work. In the evenings, be sure to head to the safe El Poblado and Parque Lleras neighbourhoods, which play home to some of the city’s best bars and clubs. The nightlife in Medellín truly is something to behold.
