This place is huge exclamation it would take a couple of days to explore the entire place. They have every kind of store imaginable here. Several food courts with local and international chain restaurants. They even have several car dealerships on the 4th floor.

Plaza Pakita

Reviewed By aje302 - Bogota, Colombia

Located in "Alto de las Palmas" with the best weather surrounding Medellin you can find Plaza Pakita.
Inside a warehouse you will find a magical world where there is food, wine, decoration stores, a playground and even a bookstore.
You can sit inside or outside and there are 20 different options (restaurants) to choose from.
Very clever idea and a cool place to spend the afternoon of catch a bite to eat.

Laguna de Guatape

Reviewed By Denise P - Canada

The day was beautiful and it was relaxing to be on the water. Very interesting to learn that the town was bombed (people safely moved) to make a lagoon for the hydro electric. We saw Pablo Escobar's house and then went as far as the Penol Rock. Great scenery, quiet and enjoyable. The boat ride was part of a day tour we took from Medellin. Spanish speaking only.

La Casa de las Piedritas

Reviewed By Yasminator - Store Heddinge, Storstrom, Denmark

Gloria and Santiago show you around in their private home, which has been built through the past 25 years - and keeps on having more sections added to it!
It looks like nothing special from the outside, but when you enter it is like a castle of hallways, staircases, small bedrooms - a true adventure.
When I visited their house I wished so badly to be a small child again, because it was with the joy and enthusiasm of a child that I explored their 'mansion'. It was like a fairytale.
Santiago is a true artist to have built this house and everything in it, from only small rocks, pebbles, and "trash" he's found around town. It's a true, modern, sustainable house - but built in a manner that reminds me of the Castles of the ancient England.
As we wrote in their guest book, Gloria cooked us a traditional Antioquinian desert, and all the was through the tour of the house we were enlightened with their beautiful stories, from her hospitable being.
A lovely place you must visit! But call them in advance. They have no internet, computer, cellphone or anything. You must call them and ask if it is ok to come and visit their house; because it isn't like a museum or anything - you will be accepted as a guest in their house.
When your visit ends you must give them money in the box they have for the purpose. I suggest giving them around or at least 20.000 COP, which is the equivalent of $3 USD.
I personally truly think that they deserve that money; and for people who can afford to travel, this amount should be absolutely nothing.
I hope you go there!

Metro de Medellin

Reviewed By ExpatinBogota - Bogota, Colombia

The only down fall at least for me was that the Metro is not convenient to all location around the city. It was a good 20 minute walk. It doesn have stops for some major landmarks like Botero Park Parque Berrio) And the MetroCable (Santo Domingo).

Es una pequeña iglesia con una hermosa arquitectura colonial.
Su interior es muy lindo e inspira recogimiento.
El barrio no es el más bonito pero no tiene problemas de seguridad.
Es muy linda la zona en Navidad, llena de iluminaciones.

Parque La Guayacana

Reviewed By Huellasdeviaje - Medellin, Colombia

Respetuosamente es parte de la historia de habitantes de la zona que han vivido en ese sector toda su vida y por ello defienden este terreno compuesto con una casa en ruinas que fue habitada por una familia con apellido famoso y a la vez comunes, cuando me refiero a respetuoso es porque es un lugar simple que no representa importancia para los turistas a diferencia de aquellos que tienen relacion directa con el pasado.
