The Best Areas in Medellín

This is the part of our Medellín city guide where we explore some of our favourite areas for hosting an event. Whether it’s partying, boardroom meetings, or after-work events, there’s a neighbourhood to suit your agenda!

The first area you need to check out is La Candelaria. Or more commonly referred to by the locals as El Centro. It’s a bustling neighbourhood. This is the best area in Medellín for seeing iconic locations – we particularly love the town hall, Antioquia Museum, and Plaza Cisneros. It’s also great for exploring street markets during your downtime.

If you’re looking for an area in Medellín to host a party, you’ll want to head to Ciudad del Río. Here you’ll see the hippest event venues in Medellín, like warehouses covered in graffiti next to art museums and food halls. It’s where the locals go to hang out, and your guests will love it!

And finally, if you’re looking for an area in Medellín to host an event with a luxury flavour, then it has to be El Poblado. From the hotels to the restaurants and the shopping malls, everything here is extravagant. This is where you’ll find the most extravagant venus in Medellín, so treat yourself and your guests by booking up in El Poblado!

How to Get Around Medellín

For visitors, the best way to get around Medellín is by public transport. Your options are as follows: metro, bus, tram, rail, bike, and cable car. In other words, the public transport in Medellín is rather unique!

The Metro system has two lines. A, which runs from North to South, and B, which runs East to West. They meet at San Antonio Station.

Then you have the gondola system, which has transformed the lives of hillside residents, where six lines cover 20 stations.

A more eco-friendly way to get around Medellín is by tram. It’s a smooth journey and part of the city’s new sustainable initiatives. However, it only covers the centre and the east of the city.

And an even more eco-friendly way to get around Medellín is by bike. There is more than 100km of bicycle paths here, and they even have a bike-share system called EnCicla, with more than 1,800 bicycles available across 100 docking stations!

Then you have the bus networks, which are the biggest element of public transport in Medellín. There are publicly and privately owned networks, and they go everywhere and anywhere!

And to wrap up the transport section of our Medellín city guide, you can of course take a taxi! You can hail them from the street, sure, but the safest and cheapest way is to ask your hotel to order one for you!

Food in Medellín

Now it’s the part of our Medellín city guide the foodies have been waiting for: the cuisine!

So here’s the thing, the food in Medellín is part of the larger Colombian cuisine, of course. However, you’ll find that it has its own distinct flavour when you visit! Now before you arrive, here are the things you really ought to try:

    1. Bandeja Paisa: An absolutely enormous meal consisting of the following: Bean, White rice, Grilled beef, Chicharrón (fried pork skin), Sweet plantain (or occasionally tostones), Sausage, Fried egg, Avocado, Yellow or white arepa.
    2. Mondongo: A traditional bit of food in Medellín – a soup of potatoes, yuca, hen, sausage, or pig meat and tripe.
    3. Mazamorra: A curious drink made from corn and milk mixed with bocadillo (a Colombian sweet made using guava fruit), brown sugar, or caramel.
    4. Calentado: A charming word for last night’s leftovers. It’s the perfect breakfast to get you ready for today’s event or recover from last night. They’re typically built from rice, beans, eggs, chorizo and whatever meat is at hand.
    5. Arepas: And finally, we couldn’t do a Medellín city guide without mentioning arepas. This grilled cornbread is a staple all over Colombia, it’s not just a portion of food in Medellín.
