After 5: Medellin

Home to vivid street art and a bounty of sculptures and paintings by Botero, Colombia's only public transit system (including cable cars), and a burgeoning dining scene, Medellin has transformed from Pablo Escobar's former hangout to one of the safest and most vibrant destinations in South America. It doesn't hurt that this city of 4 million people sits in a valley surrounded by mountains at an altitude close to a mile high, offering sublime temperatures in the 70s and 80s degree Fahrenheit year-round. This lends itself well to outdoor cafes and bars, the ideal place to start your night out on the town.
