Medellín, “City of Eternal Spring,” is an expat hotspot in northwest Colombia, and it is the capital of the province of Antioquia. The climate is very pleasant and the average temperature is between 15 ° C and 30 ° C degrees (59 degrees F and 86 degrees F), making Medellin one of the most popular cities in Colombia.
In 2017, Medellín’s population was a little over 2.5 million people making it the second largest city in the country. Medellín is located in the Valle de Aburrá and is known for its friendly locals (Paisas), trendy bars and vibrant nightlife.
Medellín was known as one of the most dangerous cities in the world. However, today, Medellin has focused on becoming a highly developed and artistic friendly city, quickly shedding its former violent image. Through the hard work and commitment of its people and local government, Medellin is one of the top 10 most innovative cities in the world.
Despite the great progress, help is still urgently needed. Not only can you support and encourage this growth, but you can also enjoy the liveliness of the people, the sights and the lifestyle in Medellin. The "Paisa" way of life is warm and hospitable, especially to foreigners. Although Medellin has had a very turbulent past, the present is full of hope and possibility.
