The apartment is located in the geographical center of Medellín so it's close to all the areas in the city (Poblado, Laureles, Downtown, etc). Perfect for people coming to conferences or events in Exposiciones or La Macarena. The apartment is very comfortable and points towards a historical hill called "El Cerro Nutibara" which I recommend to go up to get a 360 view of Medellín. It has AC for the hot days in the city and the building counts with a pool in the rooftop with a nice view as well.
The neighborhood is called "Conquistadores." Conquistadores is a safe, ecological, and residential area. Our building, Pie del Cerro, is located right next to the Cerro Nutibara Hill, at the Autopista Sur highway, in front of the river Medellín. The Cerro Nutibara Hill is a green spot of the city. Up hill the Cerro Nutibara, you can find the "Pueblito Paisa," a famous touristic attraction that shows the traditional Paisa way of living. Just crossing La 33, you will find the brand-new park Parques del Río, a spot to relax and enjoy.
Fifteen to 20 minutes by walk over "La 33," you can find several shopping malls (like Unicentro and San Diego). By "La 33" avenue many bus lines pass. The closest Metro station is the Exposiciones station, which is 15 minutes walk over La 33 too. Please check out the map at the bottom of the page to see some interesting places nearby.
Due to its central location, at the Autopista Sur highway, the noise of cars might sometimes be a problem for some people. Luckily, this is nothing that a good pair of earplugs cannot solve! We will provide them to you.
During Christmas time, you can also enjoy the "Alumbrados" or Christmas lights that decorate the river and its surroundings, because the apartment is just in front of it.
From the airport, you can take a bus (the "Buseticas" for COP 9000 or € 2.80), a shared cab (the white ones with the name "Aeropuerto" for COP 15000 or €4.75), or a private cab (the yellow ones for COP 60000 or €20)! All of them have easy access to the apartment, via Las Palmas and La 33. The entrance to the building is at the Autopista Sur highway.
Public transportation is very easy from this place because it is next to La 33 Avenue and the Autopista Sur and Regional highways. You can use different bus lines (at "La 33"), the Metro (you have the "Exposiciones" station 10-15 min. walk from here), or cabs as well. If you rent / bring a car, it is very easy because the building has private parking. Just let us know in advance that you will use the parking lot.
In any case, getting around the city is much simpler and safer with a taxi because the fares are cheap. Many good companies offer this service. In the apartment, you can find the phone numbers to request this service. However, if you want to walk, you can go towards Laureles and Conquistadores (two residential neighborhoods); Parques del Río (a new park on the other side of La 33) and Plaza Mayor (conference center with a beautiful park around it); Unicentro, SanDiego, and Premium Plaza (shopping malls); and uphill to the well-known Pueblito Paisa to have a breath-taking view of the city.
I describe myself as fun, friendly and helpful. I hope to have the opportunity of being your host in my city! I have a tourism company so don't be afraid to ask for tips to go around.
