Medellín, the city of eternal spring, is an expat hotspot in northwest Colombia and 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. This makes the tropical climate tolerable.
In 2017 Medellín had more than 2.5 million inhabitants and it is the second largest city in Colombia. 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. In recent years, Medellin has undergone a tremendous development and would like to get rid of this bad image. The inhabitants are working very hard on this and nowadays Medellin is in the top 10 most innovative cities worldwide.
However, a lot of help is still needed. Not only can you help them, but the other way around there is a lot to discover for you. The way the Paisas stand in life is completely different from how the Dutch stand in life. Every culture has its own typical things. This special culture is very open to foreigners. You immediately have the feeling that you are welcome and that is very special when you realize what a terrible period they have endured.
