Medellín, also called the city of eternal spring, is a city where you will fall in love with the city and it will be difficult to return to your city, it is a city with a wonderful climate, never too cold or too hot, it has times when it goes It will rain a lot, but surely this will not be an impediment to enjoying the city, you can have all the climates in one day, the weather forecast can show you highly sunny days with the possibility of thunderstorms, weather forecasts are of little use for Medellín, just come prepared for all climates, but they are not extreme climates.

  6. Go during the week, weekends are too crowded.

    Arví Park and Cable Car:

    Enjoy a day in Arví Park, I recommend going up by car if you have it available and taking the cable car without getting off to enjoy an impressive view and save time, that is, you take it in Arvy Park and make the return return to the park Arvy, you can take advantage and have a picnic in Confama Park, the restaurants in the area are not very good, I recommend bringing food for a picnic.

    Large flat

    1. Try Rancherito chicharrón and enjoy desserts in San Antonio de Pereira.
    2. Eat a delicious arepa de chocolo in the corner of the Park (left of the church if you look at it from the front).
    3. Ride an ATV and have lunch in places like Mundos or La Herencia.
    4. Visit the Comfama park in Rionegro and discover the typical Colombian town, Tutucán, within it (weekends can be very crowded).

    Santa Fe of Antioquia

    A beautiful colonial town, I recommend going to a hotel on a sunny day or staying one night, you won't want to walk during the day, the heat is too much, you can enjoy the pool during the day and at night go to dinner at the comedy , visit the western bridge and tour the 8 churches in the town.

    I like hotels Marshal Robledo , ideally during the week because the weekend can be very crowded.


    If you like extreme sports, you can find paragliding in many areas such as San Felix and Don Matías, you can go to Rio Claro to go rafting (this is more than three hours away) or you can ride an ATV in Llanogrande.

    We have a lot of gastronomic variety and you will be delighted with all the options we have, I recommend rappi an application that you can download on your cell phone and you can order everything from a swimsuit to food, hygiene implements and of course food, these are some recommendations that you could try while you are in Medellín and that you can visit them or order them by rappi :

    Pandebonos del Tejadito, cakes are all delicious

    Cocorollo chicken pie, this one is very far away, I recommend you order it at home

    You must try arepa de chocolo, tray paisa, buñuelos, empanadas, blood sausage.

      Do you have an additional recommendation?
