New Blog Feature – Neighborhood Reports


I am excited to share a new feature on Medellin Living which I developed over Semana Santa.

In an effort to provide useful, current, first hand information to foreigners contemplating or planning a move to Medellin, Colombia, I created a questionnaire to collect the experiences of those already here.  Now you can see what Scott from the USA thinks of living in affluent El Poblado for the last 5 months, or Amu from Germany has to say about living in grittier Centro (the city center).

If you currently live in Medellin, and are reading right now, please take a  few minutes to fill out the questionnaire.

In the future, I also plan to add some general information about the various neighborhoods as well.

Your feedback about this new feature, and the blog in general, is always appreciated.
