Customer Travel Tip: Make sure you take the metrocable, but get off in Santo Domingo and walk around, not just to Parque Arvi.

Liked: The public transportation and pedestrian walkways are fabulous and easy-to-navigate. Love the metrocable and the views from it. The city is walking friendly, and there is a lot to see. Unbelievable views from almost everywhere. Safer than some other parts of the country. As a single female, I was able to do some limited walking around after dark, which is nice since my days could end a little later! Great weather overall. Warm, but not super hot.

Disliked: Prices are a bit higher than Bogota.

Customer Travel Tip: Go to Guatapé from Medellin. Take the metro up the hill to have a beautiful view of the city from above.

Liked: Medellin is a huge city surrounded by beautiful landscapes. From there you can do a lot of trips to nice areas around Medellin. I liked the nightlife and loved my morning fruitshake from a shop across the street.

Disliked: Interesting places to see are so far apart from each other, that you can´t reach them by foot. It takes a lot of time to get around by public transport.

Customer Travel Tip: Visit Guatapé! It's only 2 hours from Medellín by bus at costs about 10$ back and forth. You'll see stunning landscapes with lots of small islands in a kind of "lake", very picturesque.

Liked: People are usually nice and there's a good vibe in the city. Nightlife appeared safe in the touristic areas and there's music everywhere (this is Colombia, after all).

Disliked: Nothing special
