Our Medellín Living Meetups

In response to popular demand, Medellín Living restarted its meetups in January of 2017 after a two-year hiatus. The new Medellin Living meetups have been a huge success, growing steadily from one month to the next. We’ve been averaging 50-70 attendees at the last few meetups.

For the moment, we’re alternating the meetups between Poblado and Laureles, which are two of the most popular neighborhoods for expats living in Medellín.

Our June meetup is planned for Poblado. Details will be posted on this site about one week before each meetup.

Note: there isn’t any fee required to attend Medellín Living meetups, and no membership is required.

We have two additional ways for our readers to keep up with Medellín Living events. You can follow us on our Medellin Living Events & Activities Facebook group or via our Medellin Living group on
