 Downtown subway station

Medellín is Colombia's second-largest city; geographically located in the northwest of the country, it makes for much more than just a journey-breaker.

Medellín has left its bad reputation associated with the drug cartels behind. As home to Pablo Escobar, the country's most famous villain and leader of the Medellín drug cartel, Escobar was previously loved by his contemporaries. The next generation of Medellínos do not hold as much respect and Medellín has returned to a more peaceful place than when it was the battleground of the Cali and Medellín cartels. However, it is interesting to find out more about Escobar -- there are regular tours that bring tourists to his home, his grave, and to the house of his brother, Roberto. There is a cable car that can be taken up to a location where there are awesome views of Medellín's sprawling city.

Colombians are very passionate people and this passion is so evident at football matches. The team Atletico Nacional is the best-known team based in Medellín and there are matches regularly. Tourists regularly attend football games and Colombians embrace their interest in their teams.

When the sun sets, most people get ready for a night in the area Parque Lleras, an area of the city that most know as the Zona Rosa, where the youth come out to party all night long! Plenty of different restaurants, bars, and nightclubs give you places to drink an Aguila beer or for those planning a wild night, some shots of aguardiente.

Every December, Medellín prides itself on its Navidad, or Christmas celebration all over the city -- it is renowned as having the most vibrant display of neon holiday lights. The public transport in Medellín is very good with trains, buses, and cheap taxis. Most tours offer private buses, which collect guests from all the hostels. It is also very well serviced by the country's long distance buses with a modern bus station.

There are many hostels in Medellín, offering every service that backpackers seek. Many are conveniently located near the Zona Rosa area.
