Dave’s Medellin Travel Guide: Essential Info All In One Place

The secret is getting out on Medellin. I’ve been blogging about it for nearly two years, and more and more travelers are coming here every day.

If you’ve ever Googled “Medellin” you’ve probably come across Medellin Living. It’s easily the #1 Medellin website for English speakers, and contains loads of great info on life in the city, from accommodations and visa considerations to nightlife and restaurant options.

If something’s a hit in Medellin, there’s a good chance my buddy Dave (the owner of Medellin Living) has an article on it. If you keep up to date with his site, you’ll know the highlights of living here, including those times when you get to pose with hot Colombian underwear models:

Just recently, Dave has released his very own Medellin Travel Guide, which contains all the essential info a traveler needs to know when coming to the city, including:

  • When to visit Medellin
  • How to understand tourist visas
  • How to budget properly
  • How to get internet and SIM cards
  • How to stay healthy and safe in the city
  • How to utilize Medellin’s public transportation
  • Where to stay in the city

    You got all that? OK, but there’s more…

  • The top 9 things to do in Medellin
  • Four solid gym options for working out
  • Five museums worth your time
  • The best restaurants in town
  • The best places to go for nightlife
  • Practical advice for dating paisas
  • Pueblos worth visiting near Medellin
  • and much more covering a solid 138 pages.

There are few other English-speaking bloggers out there who knows as much about the city as Dave, and he has a knack for compiling useful information into an easily consumable format.

I myself have toyed with the idea of creating a guide like this, but Dave beat me to it. 🙂

What I like about it is that it is thorough, and well organized, so you can easily find the info you’re looking. It is also well linked to relevant posts on his blog, so you can check them out for further explanation and details of what he covers. Finally, he includes some really cool pictures and places them throughout the guide.

It’s an intensely practical book on things relevant to the traveler or expat in Medellin. So if you are thinking about visiting Medellin, planning on visiting, or have just arrived, I recommend you check out his guide for all the essential info you need in one place.

By the way, I am a happy affiliate of Dave’s book because I think you’ll gain a lot of value out of it.

    I totaly agree! Medellin Living is super helpfull to navigate in Medellin and find the hidden things! That is where I found my school, Colombia Immersion. He wrote about how this school is beyond the traditional language schools. Eventhough I am always sceptical to language schools, it caught my eyes. And I am soooo happy, because it gave me exactly what I needed, practice and confidence in speaking. Here is the link, seriously check it out if you want to get out and learn how to live the language.
