Medellin, Colombia is rich with culture and so much to do. The city felt safe and friendly. I found getting around quite easy and enjoyed exploring various neighborhoods and foods.
Fernando Botero is perhaps Medellin’s most famous son (well, besides that dead Pablo guy). Most known for his paintings and sculptures of rotund people and animals, he has achieved international recognition and has exhibitions across the world. One of the best places to check out his work for free in Medellin is at Plaza Botero which is full of his gorditas. People love to pose next to and touch the fatties.
