Vibrant traditions and modern character collide in the lively Colombian city of Medellín. In recent years, Medellín has shed its former self to become the country's most cosmopolitan city, complete with a first-rate public transportation system and beautiful mountain backdrop. Today, it's been recognized by the Wall Street Journal as the most innovative city in the world for its progressive urban projects, and is the third-most visited city in the country. Experience this unique and popular destination like a local with a stay in one of our lovely Medellín vacation rentals.
Medellín is the capital of the Antioquia department in beautiful northwest Colombia, one of the country's biggest producers of coffee. Tucked into the hills of the scenic Aburra Valley, Medellín has been nicknamed "the City of Eternal Spring" for its mild year-round temperatures, which rarely rise above the low 70s. Parks, plazas, and botanical gardens dot the streets, and the annual Flower Festival in early August transforms the city into a joyous spectacle of bursting colors and music.
A stay in our Medellín vacation homes lets you enjoy the best of this beautiful, bustling city. Wander the halls of the Museo de Antioquia, the second-oldest art museum in Colombia; explore the cobblestone streets and brightly-colored 19th-century buildings of Pueblito Paisa; or partake in one of the city's many festivals, which celebrate everything from jazz, books, and food, to Christmas light displays.
For a local adventure, schedule a tour of the coffee farms in the surrounding hills, where you can enjoy the incredible flavor of freshly picked beans while you learn about roasting techniques and sustainability. If you prefer your excitement to come caffeine-free, climb the stairs to the top of El Peñón de Guatapé, a 10-million-ton rock west of town that offers sweeping views of the verdant landscape below.
With a wonderful climate, friendly atmosphere, and rich culture, there's no wrong time to book a stay in one of our Medellín vacation homes! Make this remarkable city your next South American getaway.
