- My Unique Perspective on Dating Medellin Women.
The weather is humid and hot year round, but a frequent Caribbean breeze keeps it tolerable. Daytime temperatures average 88F and nighttime lows average 76F with little variation throughout the year.

The dry season is between December and April with no rain from January to March. A good breeze during the dry season keeps the weather comfortable. The wettest months are September 6 inches of rain and October 8 inches of rain. Weather will have no negative bearing on your activities with the exception of short heavy downpours, which will make some of the city streets impassable for a few hours and cause some appointment delays. Here is my story. We were shuttled off to a Hotel that my girlfriend picked out. I had no inpout in this choice.
It was not in Poblado, for some reason we ended up on Carretera Wall to wall little discos that are blasting music all night.

I had to stay in Medellin for a month. So I was stuck down by the metro near the stadium stop on Carrera I was told to take off my gold chain, gold watch, anything Gold, the Police roll in late or early in the morning in a military vehicle like all together. To be honest with you Andrew I felt there was an unverbalized thing going on that you are not where you should be.
I needed a guard from the Hotel to get monies from the cajero ATM. Plus, of course my girlfriend shows me a video of Colombian soldiers in a military jeep all shot through the head. Your right about the jealousy, anyway, after they filled me with horror stories about being kidnapped, murdered or worse during the Pablo Escobar period. I was totally paranoid about even buying a beer solo at night.
Maybe they just psyched me out. I never did get to Poblado or any other nice area, only the malls. What is your opinion of that area down by Carrera Andrew is it as dangerous as I perceived or am I just paronoid form my perception. I never heard the word drugs, nor did I ask about the mafia. But upon arrival back in Miami the Border patrol agents took me into a room and gave me a complete search and investigation of what the hell I was doing in Medellin. I had to go and call them and they gave me the third degree. W Why I was sending money to Medellin.
To whom I was sending it. What I was doing in Medellin. I know the story. Miami was the money laundering capital during the Pablo Escobar era, but this is like 20 years ago. Anyway, they refused to release the monies in Colombia after an hour of investigation. What a total disgrace. If I had to do it over again , I would have went straight to Poblado and payed for a hotel. I just think I was in the wrong place at the wrong time, but I have a beautiful fiance. Thanks for your time Andrew.
The neighborhood you were in is called Estadio it boarders the Laureles, Floresta, and Belen neighborhoods. Which are all decent neighborhoods. I lived in Floresta Carrera 80 just a few blocks up. And I have a friend who owns the best Hostel in Medellin right there on la 70 about 6 blocks from the stadium, you might consider staying in one of the private rooms there next time The Wandering Paisa Hostel.
My own family tried to do it to me when I got here. Filled me with horror stories about foreigners getting mugged in plain daylight, getting taken on la vuelta millionaria where they take you at gun point to different ATMs and make you withdraw money, etc. So yes your fiance and her friends were being way too over protective and scared you, that area by the stadium is fine, especially la 70 at night.
The whole thing about traveling is that you have to be more on guard than you do in your own town in the U. She can buy a brand new AKT scooter not cheap for that price: I read your article and I really enjoyed it and I got great information from it. Is there any truth to that and what can I do?
I suggest you pose the question on an expat group in Facebook: Hostels are relatively cheap here in Medellin. A couple of my favorites are: Check em out Wandering Paisa Hostel.

If you want to be in the Poblado neighborhood, where most tourists are. You might get tired of the dorm life at the hostels. If so, you might want to check out some rooms for rent on Couch Surfing or on the many Facebook Groups. You could get a job and you could get a work visa. It depends on what your credentials are and what the job is.
I have many friends who are here on work visas, so it is possible, but not easy. If I were you, I would start looking into that now, not when you get here. Spanish is pretty critical here. Most of the population here does not speak English at all.

Anyway, to answer your questions: The great thing about Colombian women is that there is not just one type of guy that they like. Carrying a bank card is fine. What a great article and blog. Thanks for the amazing insight. Just had a couple of questions. I will be visiting Medellin with 3 other Puerto Rican friends in November. We will be staying at am apartment we rented in El Poblado.
