Why visit Medellin?


Medellin is blessed with an all year round, spring-like climate, except for the occasional downpour which helps to keep the city clean. Medellin does not suffer from any natural weather disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods or tsunamis.

With a world class transportation system, sophisticated shops, gourmet restaurants and more apartments and high rises under construction than NYC, LA and Philadelphia combined, Medellin’s transformation into a modern paradise seems to have gathered an unstoppable momentum.

As South America’s longest standing democracy, Colombia remains the United States’ staunchest ally in the region. With drug use largely confined to user countries like the US or Europe, a vastly improved security situation and a murder rate lower than many US cities, Medellin is one of the safest cities in Central or South America.

People from Medellin (Paisas) are famous for their friendliness, beauty and ingenuity. Famous Paisas include, the current President Álvaro Uribe, the infamous drug lord Pablo Escobar, South America's most successful artist, Fernando Botero and the most entertaining goalkeeper ever to brace soccer, René Higuita.
