Medellin represents everything that is great about Colombia. Lush, rolling mountains provide the backdrop to every photo. The most perfect climate imaginable year round as the city benefits from its unique location close to the equator, but at the perfect altitude to make the temperature just right. If you’re looking for history, historical figures don’t get much bigger than Pablo Escobar. Head down to the district of Envigado and talk to the locals of a certain age and almost all of them will recount stories of their personal experiences with him, surprisingly not too many critically. If you want to party, what better place than the city with the most beautiful women in the world, where open air bars spill out onto the street until the early hours. If you’re looking for restaurants, Medellin has the widest choice of international cuisine in the country and in recent years the bar has been pushed higher and higher.
