Tell Me About Colombia!

Lately I’ve had people asking me to write more about Colombia. Of course, I can’t wait to write more about Colombia. The reason I haven’t been writing much is because I’ve been pretty much hanging out in Medellin for the moment. Really trying to get settled in more than anything now that I’m living here. Also, there’s so much being done here in Medellin that I kind of feel like I’d be wasting my time and yours by writing too much about this great city. Instead, I’d like to share with you some other great resources that you may find useful if you want to know more about Medellin or Colombia.

 

Medellin Living: life in Colombia

 

 

This is probably one of the best resources out there for people wanting to know Medellin.  He not only has tons of great resources on his blog about Medellin, but he also writes about other pueblos and events going on in Colombia.  Oh yeah, he’s written a travel guide specifically for Medellin for anyone seriously planning to visit.

 

Advice for visiting Colombia

 

This site is from a good friend of mine.  What really makes this unique is that it’s not targeted towards foreigners.  Andrew is an English professor here who decided to create this website to encourage his students to discuss topics in English with vocabularies that they otherwise wouldn’t use.  It’s still packed with lighthearted news that anyone interested in visiting Medellin might find useful.

For The Ladies Out There

Colombia Reports

I’m not going to dig too deep into this one.  I am not personally endorsing these guys and sometimes I think they have ass-clowns writing their stuff.  But it is a wealth of information about the going-ons here in Colombia and is generally reliable.

 

For those who read my blog here in Colombia and elsewhere in the world, please contribute any other English written resources you may find helpful to anyone considering visiting Colombia.  And of course, my other more generic travel planning suggestions still apply.

HOW DID I FORGET???   A special FaceBook page for the guys!

UPDATE:  One more good resource.  It is an in-depth Colombia Travel Guide.  Something I went through before coming to Colombia but had forgotten about since.

  1. Great site!!

    A good amount of us from Texas are storming the place for Feria de Las Flores (like 20 of us) and any advice you can give us would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    • Hey Guillermo,

      Most of my writings here about Colombia have been on Medellin. Everything from getting through the airport to what parts of town you’re libel to get jumped in. If you have any specific questions let me know and I’ll see what I can do to answer them. Also, feel free to reach out to me via the contact page here and we can have a direct line of communications if you’d like.

      I will be doing a post in the next couple of days about preparing for the Feria de Las Flores, but I don’t know how much it will help you in your preparations. I hope you enjoy and maybe our paths will cross while you’re here.

      Safe Travels,

      Jason
