Blighted by a tragic past but blessed with a pulsating, innovative present and a truly bright future, the time to visit Medellin is now!
In 2017, Colombia has sealed a long-negotiated peace process and been declared the 2nd best country to visit for by travel writing institution Lonely (www.lonelyplanet.com/best-in-travel/countries)…and for good reason.
Despite its severely misunderstood reputation, Medellin thrives as a tourist destination today, offering visitors a dynamic dining experience, intriguing local culture and traditions, extreme sports, a vibrant dance and music scene and the opportunity to interact with enormously-friendly paisas (as the locals are known).
Academically, there can be few better places in the world to explore the Global Issues of Significance of Sustainability, Innovation and Urban Renewal.
Located in the stunning Aburrá valley and surrounded on either side by majestic mountain ranges , the ‘city of Everlasting Spring’ – so-called for it’s comfortable year-round climate of average 22ºC (71ºF) – is perfectly situated to explore Colombia’s varied and beautiful wildlife.
Come with open minds and open hearts and you will be overwhelmed with the enchanting diversity, ingenuity and breathtaking beauty of the people you will meet, things you will see and projects you will collaborate on during this CAS Trip!
