What you'll do

Half a day is plenty of time to see the blossoming Medellín of your dreams, like kicking the day off in history hub barrio Centro, to marvel at the larger-than-life Metropolitan Cathedral and nearby fountain filled Botero Plaza to get up close to world-famous sculptures. A farmer's market turned beacon of change filled with 300 pillars awaits around the corner, or reflect on the city's past in tree-filled San Antonio Plaza. See a hidden jazz gem to return to later, before hopping to a bustling flower market to see why Medellín is the City of Eternal Spring. You still have plenty of time to greet the sunbathing iguanas at the enormous Botanical Garden, or head to booming barrio Comuna 13, a melting pot of thought-provoking street art and beatboxing buskers.

Where you’ll go

Your savvy host will guide you along tree-lined streets in an urban jungle brimming with an intertwined political history, towards an architectural marvel built from one million bricks, and a nearby plaza bursting with over twenty sculptures by Colombian treasure Fernando Botero. Pass a maze-like row of tall light beacons, representing an ever-changing city, towards little lively jazz nook El Acontista to return to later. The indoor Placita de Flórez market awaits, overflowing with fresh blooms, exotic fruit, and oh-so-sweet Colombian treats. Venture to the 14-hectare Botanical Garden and stroll underneath a woven wonderland for fluttering butterflies, or perhaps you'd prefer to stroll the evolving graffiti-lined streets of Comuna 13?
