Nestled between rising hills in a narrow valley, Medellin serves as an energetic melting pot of people from all socio-economic classes.
Do your shopping at Mayorca Mega Plaza and El Tesoro Parque Comercial. Get a sense of the local culture at Museo de Antioquia and Arte Loft Galeria. Change things up with a short trip to Parque Arvi in Santa Elena (about 48 minutes away). The adventure continues: get the lay of the land with Walking tours, meet the residents at Parque Explora, look for gifts at Artesanias Caballo de Troya, and don't miss a visit to Plaza Botero.
