Medellin

— 5 nights

City of the Eternal Spring

Nestled between rising hills in a narrow valley, Medellin serves as an energetic melting pot of people from all socio-economic classes.
Get outdoors at Laguna de Guatape and Balloon Rides. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Pueblito Paisa and El Castillo Museo y Jardines. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Medellin: Catedral Nuestra Señora de las Mercedes (in Caldas) and Museo Historico Casa de la Convencion de Rionegro (in Rionegro). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Museo de Antioquia, make a trip to Plaza Botero, fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.

To see photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Medellin trip builder.
