That Medellín has benefited from the character of its people is unquestionable. Once the epicenter of Pablo Escobar’s drug cartel, it now lays claim to being one of the most progressive, modern cities in South America thanks to the optimism, industrialism and pride of the paisas that call Medellín home. Short breaks to Medellín offer the chance to experience the city’s fine-dining options, to experience the city’s infamous nightlife and to see the city’s ubiquitous buzz as artists and intellectuals are continually drawn to the city to explore their new ideas. Known as ‘The City of Eternal Spring’, the title not only describes the perfect weather that’s almost a constant in Medellín, but also the continually perpetuating sense of hope and renewal that characterizes Colombia’s 2nd city.
