What is there to do in Medellin?
If you’re in Medellin right now or looking to visit, you probably want to plan the proper itinerary to get the most out of your trip. 9/10 out of 10 men come down here and squander away their vacation time sleeping during the day. For many of you that might be fine but we’re here to tell you that when you’re here with a group of friends be it a vacation, weekend away (or the always popular, bachelor parties in Medellin) daytime activities can also provide great memories of this amazing city and country.
Medellin’s weather, people and geographical location makes it the perfect place for outdoorsy activities. Even if you’re not a very outdoorsy group of guys don’t underestimate the value of taking pictures during the day and having something to show the gals back at home. For that reason, Medellin VIP has compiled a list of activities to participate in that go beyond the conventional drinking and partying all night. Let Medellin VIP take you away from the alcohol (at least during the daytime) and show you that there is much more to this beautiful city than meets the eye.
Paragliding in Medellin
Medellin might not be the only city in the world where paragliding is possible but it will be one where the experience is most visually astounding. The city is lodged between the Aburra Valley and it is when you go to the top of the mountains that you can really appreciate a picturesque landscape. Throw in flying down with your friends in style while taking photos that will leave your colleagues back home green with envy. Paragliding in Medellin can be an easy and memorable experience with Medellin VIP.
Trips to Pueblos
For those still learning Spanish, a pueblo is a small town or village located outside of the city. Medellin is the capital of the department (state) of Antioquia which has 125 pueblos! Each pueblo offers different attractions and believe it or not, different weather conditions. You can find 90 degree weather in one and drive a few hours and find 40 degree weather in another.
Medellin might start to get settled by tourists looking to explore but if you want to stay away from the really touristy areas and want to get a sense as to how Antioqueños really live, we recommend a tour around surrounding pueblos. Note: Basic Spanish skills are required.
Eco-Tours and other Outdoor Activities
Other than paragliding there are a variety of different outdoorsy tours tours you and your group can participate in to make your daytime experiences more fun. There are mountain hikes, whitewater rafting zip lining and ATV tours to name a few. All of these activities promote recreational feats that are a great option for large or small groups looking to get away from the apartment. I can’t tell you how many groups we’ve had in the past that spend their vacation time at the apartment.
Museums and Historic Landmarks
For those interested in a more cultural retreat we also recommend the always fun daytime tours in Medellin. On these tours we take you to MAMM (Medellin’s Museum of Modern Art), Museo el Castillo (Castle Museum) and the always popular Plaza Botero which is a square dedicated to one of the world’s most respected artists, Fernando Botero. We take you to museums and show you the more touristy side of the city. The side you show to the people back home.
No matter what you and your friends prefer doing when on vacation, Medellin is the perfect city to get away from it all and just relax for a few days. There’s a cornucopia of activities for everyone and Medellin VIP can help plan your itinerary to ensure every day is taken full advantage of. Contact us today to learn more.
