Once infamous for dangerous gangs and drug activity, Medellin has been transformed. It’s now a vibrant destination for travelers seeking a culturally rich vacation. The very fact that you can now visit Medellín in safety and enjoy its beautiful weather, lovely people, and fantastic attractions is reason enough to visit. And the Spanish spoken here, which we teach in the Language & Luxury® Immersion Program, is considered about as “neutral” (no accent) as you can find.
The weather in Medellín is ideal due to its perfect combination of latitude and altitude. With average year-round temperatures of around 72°F (22°C) and daily highs near 86°F (30°C), the climate is about as good as it gets. It does rain- as in any tropical country- but it rarely gets cold. If spring is your favorite season of the year, you’ll be spoiled rotten in Medellín.
Medellín is located in a bowl in the Andes mountains, meaning that wherever you go in the city you are basically guaranteed a view of green mountains and stunning landscapes. The city is also home to beautiful parks, gardens, and miles of hiking trails. You can even spot Scarlet Macaws, Iguanas, and even wild monkeys within the city itself; not only is Medellín an innovative urban space, it’s also known for wonderful nature at the same time.
Paisas- as the people from Medellín are affectionately known- are famously friendly people. It’s not unusual to feel welcome anywhere you go Colombia, but in Medellín you get the sense that people are genuinely very happy to see you there.
Fernando Botero, Colombia’s most famous artist, was born in Medellín and his works can be found throughout the city. Neighborhoods like El Poblado and Laureles are also full of fantastic restaurants serving a variety of international cuisine, while cafes like Pergamino and Revolucion are known for serving the best Colombian coffee in town. While many people still carry preconceptions about Medellin, even people who are better-informed are often taken aback by the beautiful, friendly, and innovative city which they discover when they visit. Perhaps the best reason of all to visit Medellín is to see for yourself how much the city has reinvented itself.
