Set against a backdrop of the Andes Mountains, Medellin's dizzying skyscrapers rise over verdant city parks and aromatic coffee shops.

Take a metrocable car across the city and explore Medellin's fascinating history and culture through museums. Museo de Antioquia houses the works of local artist Fernando Botero, Casa de la Memoria offers an unsettling but enlightening dive into Colombia's dark past, and Parque Explora delights children and adults alike with interactive science exhibits.

Called the 'City of Eternal Spring', Medellin's Botanical Gardens are a must-see for plant lovers, featuring a butterfly garden, a cactus garden, and a flourishing array of orchid species.

Nomads travelling in August can also experience beautiful parades and merriment at the annual Festival of Flowers.
