... We stayed in El Poblado the business & party hub of the city around 4km sound of the centre. We had hoped to get our Brasilan visa sorted here but for the 3rd time (One in Aus, One in Panama & now Medellin) we were foiled. First there were 3 different addresses online but after an hour of online research we managed to narrow it down to one address that was listed by the Colombian & Brasilan government.
