Off the Gringo Path – I suggest exploring to areas with far less gringos. You can take the metro to a far stop like Sabaneta and walk to Parque de Sabaneta during the afternoon to experience what most of Colombia is actually like.
Santa Fe – The most popular upscale mall in Medellin, 5 levels!
Oviedo – Another upscale mall (directly across the street from Santa Fe mall)
El Tesoro – An epic very upscale mall. This is where the rich people shop lol.
Mayorca Mega Plaza– HUGE! – Take metro to Itagui station and walk directly across bridge into mall.
Cafe Revolucion – Best Coffee shop in Medellin. The staff is English-speaking and very friendly. Seriously, I’m picky and everything they serve is great!
Starbucks – Multiple locations. Just use google maps.
Chef Burger – Multiple locations. My favorite burger spot in Medellin!
BodyTech – Multiple locations. Most upscale gym chain in Medellin.
360 Fitness – Well-equipped gym with 5 floors in Laureles.
Paisas (Medellin women) are fun, flirtatious, and of course beautiful with insane curves. Most will not speak fluent English, and many will only understand a few basic words. If you’re planning a trip to Medellin, I suggest learning some basic Spanish words and phrases.
You can download DuoLingo – a free language learning app. Get to 10% on there and you increase your communication skills by 1000%. Knowing a few basic Spanish words gets you incredibly further than ZERO Spanish.
WHERE TO MEET WOMEN
Tinder – highest quality and volume.
Bumble – up and coming?
Any of the malls listed above.
Near universities (UPB, Universidad de Antiquia, EAFIT)
Riding the Metro.
Living daily life, walking around, doing errands. In Medellin, beautiful women are everywhere.
Parque Lleras – Biggest nightlife scene. Most people go here, it’s pretty crazy.
Rio Sur – The top level on Fri & Sat nights -is the most upscale venues / hottest women.
Carrera 70 in Laureles. Lots of fun. Much more low key compared to Parque Lleras. The prime area of Carrera 70 is from Estadio metro station and go south until you hit UPB University.
