The City of Eternal Spring

Medellin Travel info guide 

The city is called the everlasting spring because of its cool temperature, around 24° all year long.

Medellin was once famous for being the headquarter of Pablo Escobar’s drug cartel, and therefore a dangerous place.

Nowadays, it is no longer an area to avoid. Indeed, the city has so much to offer in terms of attractions and things to do/see that it would be a shame to miss it.

WHAT TO DO IN MEDELLIN 

Botanical garden : a huge garden exhibiting some 600 species of trees and plants, and include a lake, a herbarium and a butterfly enclosure.

It’s a nice way to flee the bustle of the city for a few hours. If you like flowers and art and you get the chance to be there during the “Feria de las Flores” (flower festival) in late July/early August, don’t miss the opportunity to visit the place.

Many domestic flights are also available through Bogota, Cartagena, Cali, , Barranquilla, Bucaramanga, San Andrés, Santa Marta etc.

By bus :  there are 2 bus terminals in Medellin. It’s true that it’s a much cheaper option but also a much longer one.

The North terminal is much larger and it is connected with the Metro station Caribe and the rail system.

The buses serve cities North and East of Medellín (Cartagena, Santa Marta and Bogotá for example).

The South terminal is near the domestic airport Olaya Herrera (closest Metro station El Poblado but not within walking distance).
