Flower Festival in Medellin: Why you Can’t-Miss it

Summer is right around the corner and if you’re still looking for a place to vacation with your friends you might want to look into visiting Medellin. I know what you’re thinking, Medellin had a negative connotation back in the early 90s but here we are 25 years hence and Medellin has changed drastically. The Flowers Festival in Medellin is one of the most famous festivals in Colombia, it has a lot of options to enjoy the city and its traditions.

Every year Medellin is lauded for its nice people, hospitable environment and the most beautiful women in the world but are there any major events that really manage to bring people to “The City of Eternal Spring”? I thought you’d never ask.

Medellin’s Flower Festival

The flower festival or “Feria de Flores” in Medellin is the city’s biggest event of the year and although it doesn’t compare in size to Bavaria’s Oktoberfest or Rio’s Carnaval, Medellin’s Flower festival attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world to experience it.

The festival usually begins the first Sunday in August every year and if you want to see the biggest collection of flowers as well as the most beautiful women on earth, this is an event you just can’t afford to miss.

Ok, maybe many of us could care less about flowers and nature but the event lasts 12 days and there is a different activity every day! There are concerts every day, the world’s largest outdoor horse parade (which by the way is basically just everyone getting drunk and watching insanely hot women jump up and down on horses) and a day dedicated just to the exhibition of hot cars and even hotter women right next to them. It’s basically a 12-day vacation where liquor stores earnings are record-breaking.

The Flower Festival in Medellin is great because there is something for everyone to do so whether you’re into nature such as flowers, bird watching and walks or more into partying and seeing all nightclubs packed, Medellin’s Flower Festival is the place to be for a vacation.

What to Keep in Mind

  • Being that it is a global event, the Flower Festival in Medellin sees every hotel booked with months in advance so now is as good a time as any to research availability.
  • You also want to do some research on Medellin so you can book your activities before you arrive.
  • Bring your camera or smartphone and be ready to go home with some pretty amazing pictures because this is the best time to visit Medellin.

In conclusion, this upcoming August Medellin will host one of South America’s biggest events and the biggest display of beautiful women in the world. Don’t believe us? Ask someone who’s been and we guarantee their answer won’t be any different.

Guatape Tour

Visiting Medellin and not taking the day trip out to the quaint town of Guatape is like not even having visited Medellin at all. This beautiful small town has been on the bucket list of many travelers and it would be a crime not to visit if you’re down here.

 
Most towns in Colombia are very similar. Spanish architecture, a church in the middle of a square, town drunks, city hall and a bank. Guatape is the only town in Colombia that has had the misfortune of having its citizens permanently relocated. That’s right, in 1978, the town of Guatape was flooded in order to have a hydroelectric dam built. Its citizens were all moved and the remains of the old town are underwater. That’s not all, there is a 7,000 foot monolith that sits in Guatape territory. The rock itself has been there for millions of years and today, there are 742 stairs you can climb in order to reach the summit. These stairs although arduous for those suffering from the effects of a hangover, are worth the adventure as the view from the top is something out of this world. Sold yet?
 
Our Guatape tour provides you not only with the transportation to and from but also a tour of the quaint town, entrances to the rock, a boat tour of the lake and a surprise visit to a villa built by he-who-must-not-be-named. Upgrade to our Medellin VIP Signature Boat Party and this Guatape Tour can be informative, exciting and epic!

Included:

    • Round-trip Transportation
    • Rock Entrances
    • Tour of Guatape
