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.
However, help is still greatly needed. Not only can you support and nurture this growth, but you will also enjoy the vibrancy of Medellin’s people, sights and way of life. The “Paisa” way of life is warm and inviting, especially to foreigners. Though Medellin has had a very tumultuous past, its present is filled with hope and possibility and its future is very bright. You immediately get the feeling that you are welcome here and living in a very special place.
