Modern Medellin is a busy regional capital, a creative center, and a growing tourist destination. In just one generation, the city has made a remarkable transformation from a troubled place to one renowned for its innovative cultural sectors and green technology.
Medellin is great for culture, food, art & nightlife.
Don't miss a visit to Communa 13. This former under-developed neighborhood built on a hill is now a major attraction. Escalators take you up the mountainside, where cafes, shops and awesome street art await you.
You’ll likely fly into Jose Maria Cordova International Airport, which gives great views of the Aburra Valley. A taxi to the city takes about an hour. If you’re looking for a cheaper option, airport buses run to two destinations – ask which before you board.
