If you’re a regular reader of our Colombia Travel blog you’ll know that one of our missions in life is to tell the world how amazing Colombia is, and that also involves trying to change some of the naive streotypes that sadly persist about the country.
We have talked about Medellin many times before; not only because it is one of our favorite cities in Colombia, nor just because we have many emotional bonds here, but because it is still widely associated by non-travel related people with violence, drugs and Pablo Escobar‘s reign of terror. That time moves further and further into the history books every day. Today Medellin is actually one of the cleanest, warmest, most organized and welcoming cities not only in Colombia, but in the whole of Latin America.
That’s why we were so happy when the Medellin Travel and Convention Bureau invited us to a 7 day blogtrip in order to get to know the city and its surroundings better. Here’s just a sneak peak of 25 photos… We took much more. Many posts will follow over the next few weeks.
