Known as the "City of Eternal Spring," Medellín is the place to enjoy yearlong spring-like weather and immerse yourself in the mountains of Colombia. This valley is surrounded by beautiful landscapes, fauna, flora, and happy, friendly Paisas. Medellín has recovered from one of the most challenging recent histories of any city in the world and is now an up-and-coming hub of creativity, lifestyle, and entrepreneurship.
"During my month of living in Bogotá, a few things have stood out as highlights. I’ve ridden bikes for miles on Ciclova Sundays (when major roads are closed to bicycle and pedestrian-only traffic), run in the parks side by side with locals, worked out on the free gym equipment with people of all ages (including gymnasts performing incredible stunts on the pull-up bars), and nearly every morning have waved to the swarms of dog walkers in my neighborhood park. In addition to the outdoor lifestyle (despite the rain), other perks include quite possibly the best tap water in the world (sorry, New York City), and delicious street food. But above all, the people are incredibly welcoming." — Lee Wagner, Remote Year Ikigai, 2016-2017
Welcome to Mexico City, an impressive metropolis with a kind heart. You’ll find it adventurous and contrasting, yet surprisingly accessible. Chilangos (locals) are extremely friendly, local history is abundant, and food is intertwined with a cultural renaissance. Mexico City is the up-and-coming hotspot of Latin America. From art and healthy living to the culinary scene and urban development, everything about CDMX is so hot, hot, hot right now.
Just a few of the once in a lifetime experiences Remotes can look forward to on this itinerary.
The beauty of Latin America won't be lost on you as you travel between some of its most eye-catching countries. Whether you're taking in the view from atop Machu Picchu or are left in awe by the dynamic energy of Mexico City, you'll find your nirvana while you're traveling with Remote Year Elysian.
