Modern

Known as the City of Eternal Spring. That was true when we were there, with mostly clear skies and an average of 80 during the day.

The city reinvested whatever confiscated money from the drug cartels and used it to modernize the city and help the poorer communities (comunas). This included the cable car systems and modern metro lines. There is also a number of park, plaza, sports and government buildings built from this.

Highly recommend:

  • Guatape day trip
  • Escobar or Narco tour
  • Parque Arvi
  • Esadio sports area
  • San Antonio neighborhood in city center
  • Graffiti tour

Other sites to check out:

  • El Poblado neighborhood
  • San Javier neighborhood
  • Nutibara hill
