Medellin

Nestled between rising hills in a narrow valley, Medellin serves as an energetic melting pot of people from all socio-economic classes.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Escaleras Electricas De La Comuna 13 and Adrenaline & Extreme Tours. Step out of Medellin with an excursion to Cementerio Jardines Montesacro in Itagui--about 32 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, get your game on at Tejo In Medellin (tour), see the sky in a new way at Planetario de Medellin, and see the interesting displays at Museo Casa de la Memoria.
