Garden in a Glass
Medellin's Botanical Garden is a great example of the deliberate government efforts to revive the city with urban planning. It is a beautiful relaxing oasis where people wander, read, nap, work out and when I was there, take quinceanera pics in fabulously over-the-top dresses. Enjoy a lunch of Colombian cuisine and a glass of water (or wine) at In Situ, make sure to get to the butterfly house before 4pm and look for one of the large iguanas that hang out by the lake.
