Experience a digital nomad paradise nestled in a valley amid the Andes. Medellín's famed cafes, tree-lined barrios, pulsing nightlife and friendly locals earn it a reputation for being one of the most vibrant cities in Latin America.

The experience

What is it actually like to live in Medellin Colombia? Where can one month take you? From a Spanish crash-course for the whole group on arrival, to basic salsa lesson at famed local salsa club, to tours of downtown and the famous graffiti of Comuna 13, living in Colombia is nothing less than inspiring! The group will also take a day trip to Guatape, a colorful and traditional Colombian town. Skills-based volunteering is also the best way to get off the beaten path and to experience the city on a deeper level. Set up a chat with the team to learn more about ‘a day in the life’.
