Visiting Medellin for a few days in April  (6 Answers)

Hi, it will my first time in Colombia in April. Visiting Villavicencio ( I am a keen aviation enthusiast and Villavicencio has great old aircraft still flying) and from there I am flying to Medellin with Aires. I know medellin had a bad rep- but I hear things got much better. I am not some rich tourist and I am not flashy but I do like a good time. I am also gay. Is there gay life in medellin and is it safe to go to the gay areas? In many cities the gay areas tend to be in bad neighborhoods so I am a little wary. Any ideas of hotels in those particular areas- is there even an " area" where I should be situated- I also plan to see some countryside and bus it down to Cali- would that an advisable thing to do?
Many thanks for your assistance

Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · September 21, 2004

Hi everyone, My company (a large multinational) has offered me an assignment in Medellin. I need an advice from other "corporate junkies" - what is this place like? My major concern is security (have a wife and a little baby). All the bad rap about Colombia and Medellin, specifically, - how far/close is it to the reality? Also - basic necessities: what's the quality of medical services, can you find an English-speaking doctor/dentist, regular shopping, social activities. How much strain will absence of Spanish skills put on you? (I plan to study Spanish, no question about that, but I'm ZERO now). MOST IMPORTANTLY: do you know any other sites (preferably forums) for EXPATS IN MEDELLIN or Colombia (spent a couple of hours on the internet, couldn't find anything even remotely useful). Thanks in advance.

Paisa region??  (2 Answers)

What cities would be included in this area of paisa? Is paisa an area or region or?? Is it true that the people of this area are extremely hairy or is this just a generalization? What city would I have the highest probability of meeting ladies with this quality in Colombia? (mujeres muy velludas). I'm an American, travel frequently to BQ & Cartegena and what few experiences I have had there it seems the women were not blessed with this quality. Just a personal preference that I have. Hoping someone who is from Colombia might set me straight about this. Possibly I am incorrect about the paisas and need to look elsewhere. Thanks for any information/ideas/suggestions. I will be forever grateful. Kindest regards and happy travels!!
