Reasons Why People are Coming to Medellin?

Medellin is not a hidden gem anymore, offering amazing events, fairs, economic value, up and coming restaurants, *catch my breath. You will see the night life shining every day even though they have work the next day. On Sundays, you will see thousands of people walking, running, cycling and enjoying life.

People here are friendly and life in the Eternal Spring is not only legitimate, it’s what the Paisa’s (locals) always say, “Tranquillo” (Relax). Medellin is truly a developing country where Starbucks meets restaurants located in apartment buildings. Office buildings to local guys wheeling their avocado carts to sell to the neighborhoods.
