Nestled between rising hills in a narrow valley, Medellin serves as an energetic melting pot of people from all socio-economic classes.
Visiting Parque Arvi and Balloon Rides will get you outdoors. Your inner history buff will appreciate Parque Tematico Replica del Viejo Penol and Templo Parroquial Jesus Nazareno. Go for a jaunt from Medellin to Guatape to see Piedra Del Penol about 1h 50 min away. And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Museo de Antioquia, contemplate the long history of Pueblito Paisa, look and learn at Planetario de Medellin, and indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas.
