Whether you’ve just arrived in Medellín or have been here for years, you’re welcome to come to the Medellín Living meetups. It’s a great opportunity to get advice, swap travel stories, and meet like-minded people who share an interest in the city of eternal spring.

Our May meetup will be held at the popular Del Patio restaurant and bar, which features a lush, tropical feel. It’s located in a converted house just off the popular Setenta (Carrera 70) nightlife area in Laureles. It’s a great place to relax, have a drink, and enjoy some classic rock and pop music.

Del Patio is located at Circular 2 #70-39, just off Carrera 70, near the UPB university. It’s about a 10-minute walk from the Estadio metro station.

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 meetups have been a huge success, growing steadily from one month to the next. We had over 80 attendees at the April meetup in El Poblado at Delaire Sky Lounge.  And we are expecting another big turnout this month in Laureles.

Our plan is to rotate our meetups each month between El Pobaldo, Envigado, Sabaneta and Laureles, which are the four most popular neighborhoods for expats living in Medellín.

The idea is to encourage expats to experience different parts of the city. Our June meetup is tentatively planned for Envigado and for July we are planning in Sabaneta. Details will be posted on this site around around three weeks before the planned meetups.

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

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

        • Hello Bert,

          We used to hold the Medellin Living meetups on the third Thursday of each month. We’ve now switched to the second Thursday of each month to avoid conflicts with other expat events in Medellin.

          Hope you’re able to make it to the next one.

  1. I’m not on Facebook. But that won’t stop me from attending in Laureles on May 11th. Count me in.

    Thanks, Jeff, for connecting me at the Delaire meetup with someone to potentially guide me in how to sell my Ecuador-licensed car.

    • Hi Hank,

      Thanks. We have you down for 1 RSVP. See you there!

      One of the benefits of our meetups as that if you have questions about different things, it is possible to connect with someone to answer your questions.

  2. Hi Jeff. Nick Spencer and Paige Fincher plan on attending, and we will be bringing a friend. So please add 3 to the RSVP list. Thanks.

  3. Jeff;

    When is the next meet up? I’m presently living in Miami but plan on moving to Medellin in the near future. I plan on coming to Medellin soon and look around more. I don’t use Facebook.
