Travel Diary: Colombia – Ep 139

The final part of my travel diaries from two months in South America. Wow, Colombia what a place! This was my first solo travelling experience so I was super excited to get going and check out the country. 

Things I did in Medellin:
-Do the Real City Free Walking Tour to understand more about the city (Highly recommended!)
-Do the Exotic Fruit tour
-Do a day trip to Guatape and see if you can include a tour of a coffee farm
-Check out a football match
-Check out the nightlife in El Poblado
-Eat traditional dishes like Arepas and Bandeja Paisa

Things I didn’t get to do but are recommended:
-Tour of Comuna 13
-Ride the cable cars above the city
-Go paragliding

Other places I visited in Colombia:
-Cartagena (not my favourite place but worth the visit)
-Isla Grande (part of the islands off the coast of Cartagena. Highly recommended!! Make sure you stay for at least a night)
-Head to the Minca area for good hiking and being in nature
-Costeno beach near Santa Marta for a good party scene
-Barranquilla for Carnaval in February!

Some useful tips:
-Get a metro card, it makes travelling super cheap
-Eat all of the fruit! There’s so much amazing fruit there
-Practice your Spanish with the locals, they are really friendly
