Medellin vacation rentals

Meet Colombia's revitalized Medellin

A vibrant hillside city sprawled along the Aburra Valley floor, Medellin has long since shaken off the reputation afforded to it by the notorious antics of Pablo Escobar. Modern travelers arrive to find a prosperous metropolis with wide, tree-lined boulevards, elegant public squares, and an array of dining and nightlife options. Whether enjoying some downtime with family or packing your glitziest outfits for a fun weekend break with friends, Medellin vacation rentals place you firmly in the heart of Colombia's second city. You'll find many rentals set in plush high-rise apartment blocks where sweeping views are part of the deal.

Soak up the culture in Medellin

Culture is around every corner in Medellin but never is it so apparent than in the city's slightly chaotic center. Everyday life is firmly on the agenda here, and many travelers are content to settle down amid Plaza Botero's bulbous bronze sculptures and soak up the atmosphere. When you've had your fill of the city's most photographed area, a guided tour can be a lovely way to get more of a feel for Medellin. You might check out Central Mayorista, a 40-block slice of heaven for foodies, or stroll through the delightfully fragrant Placita de Flores, the city's famous flower market.

Explore Medellin's attractions

The city's plazas and markets offer a taste of true Medellin but the city's attractions don't end at fascinating streetscapes. Explora Park serves up a planetarium and the largest freshwater aquarium in South America, while the adjacent Joaquin Antonio Uribe Botanical Garden is the perfect spot to recharge your batteries before heading out to explore some more. As evening falls, don't even think about heading back to your Medellin vacation rental. Stick around a while to catch a glimpse of the city's most beautiful people hoping for big wins at the casinos near San Benito or dancing the tango in trendy El Poblado.

It's always spring in Medellin

Medellin's alternative moniker of the City of Eternal Spring means that there's never really a bad time to enjoy a stay in a Medellin vacation rental. Whether you're visiting in summer or winter, you can expect the temperature to hover around a comfortable 70 degrees. Little wonder, then, that the city is widely considered to be a year-round destination. One thing that makes it worth visiting in summer, though, is the Medellin Flower Festival. This annual extravaganza takes over the city for a week each July, bringing with it outdoor concerts, cookery classes, a Paso Fino horse parade, and show-stopping exhibition gardens.

Discover Medellin's eco-friendly side

Medellin may well be a city known for its hustle and bustle but there's plenty of spots where travelers can escape to nature, even if only for a little while. Cerro El Volador, one of the city's 7 guardian hills takes center stage for its incredible views of the city below. Before heading to the top, pick up a Colombian arepa for an impromptu picnic lunch. Willing to travel a little further afield? A ride on the city's Metro Cable up through the misty mountains to the village of Santa Elena brings a trip to the Arvi Park ecotourism reserve into play.
