5 Things to Know Before Going to Medellin

If you’ve chosen our Medellin Vacation Package for your next trip, then you have a lot to look forward to. Medellin is a city full of beautiful culture, amazing views, and a perfect climate. While you’re here, there’s many things that you can do. Although you’ve probably researched the best restaurants to eat at, the best clubs to dance at, and the best cultural activities to participate in, there are some other small details that you may not know about. For that reason, we’ve put together 5 facts that will be helpful on your trip.



Water is Potable

When you travel abroad, not all of the water will be potable. In Medellin, however, the water is safe to drink. This means that instead of buying water bottles everywhere you go, you can just bring a refillable water bottle.

There Are Beauty Services Everywhere

Since there’s so much competition among beauty services, it means that the prices are very affordable. Women and men alike can enjoy a cheap manicure, wax, massage, or trip to the hair salon.

The Food Isn’t Spicy

If you’re expecting to eat authentic spicy food here, you may have a hard time finding it. Although the food here is delicious, it isn’t the same level of spicy that some of us are looking for. For those of you that love spicy food, you may want to bring your own hot sauce from home.

Dryers Aren’t Common

If you need to do laundry on your Medellin Vacation Package, you should be prepared to hang up your clothes to dry. Not that anything is wrong with this, but dryers are very uncommon in Colombia. Due to the warm weather, however, clothes dry very quickly.

Ciclovia Happens Every Sunday

During ciclovia, they close down the streets to allow people to ride their bikes, go on runs, and walk their dogs. On these streets, there are also vendors selling coffee and treats. For those of you that love being outdoors, this is a great Sunday morning activity that most tourists don’t know about. This happens every Sunday at a certain time and place, so make sure to ask us for more details.

These are a couple of fun facts to consider before you go on your Medellin Vacation Package. For more information and tips, contact us at Arik Travel.
