4 Days Trip To Medellin, Colombia!

Just had an incredible 4-day adventure in Medellin, Colombia! First, I explored the vibrant streets of El Poblado, enjoying local cuisine at Mercado del Rio. Next, a breathtaking cable car ride to Santo Domingo offered stunning city views. The Botanical Garden and Parque Arvi were perfect for nature lovers.
But the highlight was a day trip to the colorful town of Guatapé and its iconic El Peñol rock. Every moment was a new discovery. Medellin's warmth and hospitality left a lasting impression. I highly recommend this trip! For an in-depth guide, check out this video I found on YouTube✈️
