The best word to describe the city of Medellin? Inspired. From its chic and modern skyline rising up into the clouds amid the jagged mountain peaks, to its pleasantly warm and balmy climate that just begs visitors to kick back and relax, the City of Eternal Spring is the perfect combination of sleek professional by day and party animal by night. If it’s sunshine and nature you crave, the city’s unique location nestled in a valley surrounded by soaring green mountains, combined with its warm, year-round temperatures, make this the ultimate destination for outdoorsy types. More of an indoor person? From salsa lessons and cultural museums, to cafes offering some of the world’s best coffee, there is no shortage of things to do, foods to try, and people to meet. Just make sure to save some energy for when the sun goes down, because that’s when the city really lets its hair down and shows its true colors. Once dubbed “The Most Dangerous City in the World,” Medellin has spent the last 20 years transforming itself into the newest “it” city, and boy, has it succeeded.
