Shared accommodations for our Medellín programs are provided in partnership with Rango Hostel Boutique, located in the vibrant and upscale neighborhood of El Poblado. Rango provides our students with top-notch living quarters in close proximity to some of the best nightlife and restaurants in the city. Rango also supports a growing community of digital nomads and travelers for our students to participate in.

If you're not interested in sharing your room, and would like a private room - we also offer private rooms at an upscale building in El Poblado within a 15 min walk from your classroom. Buildings include full amenities, and are furnished and comfortable. 

*Housing accommodations are at an additional fee.

Medellin Activities


Medellin Activities


drinks

Welcome DRINKS

Upon arrival, the students and teaching staff will get to know each other over traditional Colombian beers and appetizers. Everyone will get the chance to sample some Colombian empanadas, chorizo, chicharron and local beers, soft drinks, and juices.

It is recommended everyone shows up for this event as it will be a good ice breaker, and Destination Dev will cover the cost of the appetizers and your first beer in Medellin.  


Parque Arví

After a week of hard work, we recommend you take a day trip to Parque Arví - a verdant nature preserve right outside of Medellín. Transportation to the park is provided by the famed Medellín Metrocable - a renowned feat of urban planning that has improved the lives of working-class people in formerly far-flung areas of the city. Students will get to experience how average people live in Colombia on the way to the park, which has hiking trails, a farmer's market, and amusement park attractions.

Guatapé and El Peñol Day Trip

Guatapé is a man-made reservoir in a vast valley that forms a beautiful inland archipelago. Students will have a day to hike up El Peñol, a large rock formation that provides a stunning view of the valley, explore the town, and participate in watersports.


Atlético Nacional Soccer Match

We will attend a soccer match and cheer on Medellín's own Atlético Nacional - the winningest soccer club in all of Colombia. Atlético is the most popular team in Colombia and plays frequent matches against local and international rivals at the Atanasio Girardot Stadium. 

Free tickets provided by Destination Dev.
(Based on availability, and whether there are games happening.)
