Medellín is a great place to visit and to live. Getting around on public transportation is easy and reliable, even during hectic times like rush hour. Moreover, you’ll find that the city has things to do to for travelers of every kind. Fun fact: one of my favorite things while living there was seeing Botero sculptures in random places throughout the city.
