Friday has arrived and the country is coming to life with the excited atmosphere only the imminence of a summer’s weekend can bring. Yet, we still think Colombia can top whatever you’ve got going on over the next few days. How? Well, a bit of time spent in Medellin, one of Colombia’s most exciting cities, is always going to beat a weekend at home, surely?
A city surrounded by rugged mountain peaks and lush forest; no matter what time of year you visit, the city’s temperate climate will welcome you with open arms. As will it’s unique charm, culinary scene and well-known nightlife. Both rural and developed, intrepid and relaxed; Medellin can be whatever you wish it to be.
Since you’re in the mountains, why not have a go at mountain biking and trekking? Then, when you’re all tired out, a meander through a renowned art gallery followed by a drink in one of the city’s vibrant bars will finish your day off nicely. Oh, and the best bit about this enchanting city? Carmen, one of our all-time favourite restaurants in Latin America. Be sure to check it out.
