Horrible horrible place! Food is shocking. It's completely unsafe. Hot and dirty. And the list could go on.
it is a beautiful city and completely safe. Too bad they get the bad rap about being dangerous and a drug city.
Definitely do Guatape and gondola. Escobar trip was good but pricey. Cant beat food and nightlife. Would make trip around a weekend as is definitely more lively
The people of Medellin are some of the friendliest I have met in all my travels around the world. I went there not knowing exactly what to expect, but left with only good things to say about the people.
I met a lot of wonderful people who treated my like one of their own. I now have many friends in Medellin and am sure to return.
To be honest, I was told the city was dangerous. However, I found it very friendly and very enjoyable.
I saw no crimes being committed. I am so sorry that the reputation is bad. I felt very safe in all public places.
As Medellin was city of the year in 2013 i had high hopes. I did not see much to impress me, however i met some people who enjoyed Medellin, so it is best to do some research and choose a good location
I am working in Colombia for six months. I live in La Ceja, a small town near Medellin and I always enjoy when I have to come into the city.
There is nothing "third world" about this city and I have always felt same when walking around on my own. I love Colombia, that is why I am here!!!
