Project Description

It’s no wonder that Medellín, the “City of Eternal Spring,” is everyone’s favorite city in South America: It’s cosmopolitan, friendly, filled with urban greenspaces, cheerful sculpture gardens, tranquil neighborhood cafés, glam nightlife, and state-of-the-art public transport that includes cable cars up to an enormous, mountain-top park. The 1980s narcoviolence being rehashed in endless Pablo Escobar biopics is a thing of the past—Medellín may well be safer than your hometown.

Interesting Fact: Over 40% of all fresh cut flowers imported to the United States come from in and around Medellin.
