    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Smaller than Bogota and situated in the Aburrá valley, surrounded by beautiful mountains, Medellín is one of the newest and most modern large cities in South America. Once the home of the infamous Pablo Escobar (his house is still there today), Medellín has overcome its violent past, and is now one of the most progressive and safest cities on the continent.

    Medellin is known as the City of Eternal Spring: the average annual temperature is 22ºC (72ºF) and because of its proximity to the equator, its temperature is constant year round with minimal temperature variations. Temperatures range from 10ºC (52ºF) to 30ºC (86ºF).

    The street food is great in Medellin. Clean and fresh, arepas are a diet staple. Try them with butter and salt, or try a traditional arepa with churrizo, pork rinds, guacamole and beans. Also look for the local dish, the Bandeja Paisa, a plate of, well, everything.

    The city is full of beautiful parks. World famous artist Fernando Botero is a native of Medellin and the city is proud to dedicate a park displaying some of his works. Most parks have works of art or a noticeable theme and will at various times of day or weekends will be filled with visitors and are fun places to watch people.

    Medellín has plenty of nice taxi drivers and the only metro system in Colombia, both of which can take you where ever you need to go in a quick, safe and inexpensive manner.

    Take a Chivas around the city at night! Chivas are party buses that drive around the streets. They are loud and a fun way to party around with your friends.

    In Medellín, there are plenty of options for the nightlife. From clubs, bars, trendy restaurants, cafes. Most clubs are situated in Parque Lleras in the wealthy area of El Poblado, but for a real Colombian experience check out Carrera 70 in the Suramericana/Laurales neighborhood. Learn how to Salsa first though!
