clothes and shoes you should wear in Medellín- Colombia


Choosing what type of shoes to wear is important.

  • Sandals, heels

  • Tennis

  • 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.

  • Shorts
  • Tshirts
  • Bermudas Islands
  • Dresses
  • skirts
  • Any type of Jeans
  • NO COATS will give you a lot of heat (although there are people who use them)
  • Sweater: for rainy days.

In Medellín, it does not do much heat or cold, but sometimes it rains a lot DO NOT FORGET TO PACK YOUR UMBRELLA


the perfect weather, it’s very cool at night (average 19th grade), so there’s no change in clothes. If you go to a party or dinner, you can use the same light clothes, the weather does not change much.


I highly recommend carrying; CAPS AND GLASSES, for those days when the sun hits hard. also SOLAR BLOCKER DO NOT FORGET TO CARRY YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC CAMERA AND YOUR TELEPHONE, you will want to capture many moments.


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.
