18 Fantastic Things to do in Medellin

This amazing city of 2 1/2 million has the big city energy and drive of a London or a New York. The Paisas are passionate full-on people and I adored them and their beautiful city of eternal spring.

The best places in Medellin are much more about experiences, exploring neighborhoods, eating fruit, and generally embracing the paisa life!

Museo de Antioquia Medellin contains a mix of sculptures and paintings by Botero – although it is heavier on the painting side.
