Choosing what type of shoes to wear is important.

  • Sandals, heels

  • Shoes not too thick

  • NO THICK BOOTS; In Medellín there are many people who wear this type of boots. but I do not recommend them at all, they will sweat a lot.


Very light clothes. The good thing about Medellín is that you can use almost all kinds of clothes.

If you fly to Medellin, you will arrive at the JOSE MARIA CORDOBA airport, it is located in Rionegro, one hour from Medellin. RIONEGRO is a nearby municipality and is colder than Medellin. (depends on the time you arrive) I recommend you bring a light sweater while you enter the city.
