For the remainder of 2018, there are many events that are taking place in Medellin as you stay in your Medellin apartment.   Medellin is the second largest city in the country of Columbia. It is located in the Aburrá Valley, a central region of the Andes Mountains in South America.


There are plenty of things to do in Medellin year round and for shopping, there are a few malls including the highly rated El Tesoro Shopping Park that has a modern feel and a small children’s amusement park in the center of it.  A bit like Mall of America in Minneapolis, MN, but on a smaller scale.


If you are looking for a Starbucks, you are missing one of Medellin’s most popular and famous coffee shops, or cafés.  Juan Valdez Cafés are actually run by the National Federation of Columbia Coffee Growers.  If you were watching TV in the 70’s and 80’s you would remember Juan Valdez as the Columbian Coffee grower who starred in all their commercials.  Today, these cafés are a favorite of Columbian residents and are rated by them as the some of the best in Columbia. 


If you are looking for the most popular area in town for western foreigners than look no further than El Poblado.  We have beautiful residences here and there are an unlimited number of restaurants, cafés, shopping and nightlife within walking distance. There is also a strong police presence which makes it considered one of the safest neighborhoods in Medellin.  If you are going to stay long enough to learn Spanish EAFIT University, which has a popular Spanish language program for foreigners.
