20 Years ago Medellin was the most murderous city in the world. That has all changed today and we felt really safe during our stay.

We stayed at the Black Sheep hostel, which is owned by a kiwi guy. The best thing about this hostel was the Sunday BBQ. We were lucky enough to be there on a Sunday and got one of the best feeds of the trip …

March 26th

The previous evening Yeimy cooked for us in the communal kitchen. Whilst sitting outside eating we learned from the hostel receptionist that there is a direct bus to Perreira a few times a day. This could save us time journeying through Armenia but also means another early start as the best bus for us is the 7.30. We have an …

Medellin by comparison to Bogota is beautiful (in parts), it has its shady areas which we stumbled into a little by mistake (only once) but it also has some great places to see.

We again took a cable car up to the top of a mountain, expecting to only just get a good view of the city but we were surprised when at the top of the cable car …

Another night bus from Bucaramunga around 10 hours got me to Medellin, Colombia's second largest city, with the nickname of 'The City of Eternal Spring' from its pleasant year round climate. Before I get onto Medellin, I'm going to talk about the air conditioning on all overnight buses in Colombia. The AC is cranked all the way up to …

Narco's and the legacy

A travel blog entry by tomascollins

Tour operators now spin gringos around the city and recount stories of car bombs, $1000 bounties on all cops (incidentally, so corrupt were …

    Good hostel,10 minute walk from metro, and short walk to Zona Rosa. Close to large exito supermarket, would recommend. Has ties with Real City tours, so has around 8 spaces for people to join the tour which is really worthwhile

    Nice hostel run by a kiwi guy, great location, good facilities, helpful, friendly staff. Really nice private rooms too with amazing showers. Not a party hostel but really sociable & only 10 mins walk from zona rosa where theres good nightlife.
    They have a local guy start his free walking tour (tips) from there every second day, see below (this is not to be missed)

    Great cosy hostal where you get to meet great other travellers, Kelvin the owner also works here which gives a good vibe to the place and he also cooks up a mean BBQ on Sundays.
