Nestled between rising hills in a narrow valley, Medellin serves as an energetic melting pot of people from all socio-economic classes.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Horseback Riding Tours and Metropolitan Cathedral Basilica.

To find reviews, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Medellin visit planner.
