Medellin was once dubbed ‘The Most Dangerous City in Colombia’. For some, Medellin is still remembered for its association with the infamous drug lord Pablo Esobar. This is the place where he operated his notorious drug cartel, during the 70s right through to the 80s. Much has changed since then. The city has transformed into a destination popular with tourists worldwide, for its natural beauty, annual festivals and colourful culture. Medellin is situated 4,905 feet above sea level, in close proximity to the equator. Positioned inside a beautiful valley, encircled by mountains, Medellin enjoys spring-like weather throughout the year. It has numerous parks, ideal for people watching and relaxing amidst scenic surroundings. The Plaza Botero is a great place to visit, for its 23 amazing life-sized sculptures, all created by Fernando Botero. Art lovers will also enjoy the Museo de Antioquia, which is home to additional works by Botero and other renowned Latin artists. The Parque Explora contains South America’s largest freshwater aquarium. There is an outdoor park here too, with interactive games for children to enjoy and learn about the laws of physics. Parque Lleras is the place to go, for the best restaurants, dance clubs and bars.
