Welcome to Medellín
Medellín’s modern infrastructure, artistic heritage, and "bandeja paisa" (platter) cuisine make it the jewel in Colombia’s urban crown. In recent years, the South American city has shed its troubled reputation under Pablo Escobar and emerged as the City of Eternal Spring, with temperate weather making it an ideal destination for outdoor activities in Antioquia. Immerse yourself in street food, markets, and public art on a sightseeing tour; or pose beside Botero’s grossly disproportionate sculptures in Plaza Botero. Medellín also serves as a launching point for day tours to Colombian coffee plantations and Andean resort town Guatapé.
