The secret is out: Medellín is one of the most desirable cities to visit in South America. A winding descent from the mountains offers a first glance at the city’s beauty. Once in its depths, visitors are seduced by the locals' (known as Paisas) passion for music and dance, as well as their sincere kindness and affection. In the daytime, the temperature tends to be comfortable, so take time to wander through diverse neighborhoods, sample local cuisine, and sip on exotic fruit juices. Then when night comes to the streets, dance to the beat of salsa, vallenato and reggaeton.
