Wellness Vacation in Colombia
Updated: May 9
In recent years, the South American country of Colombia has really become a hot new tourist destination. Especially the bustling city of Medellin has been described as the place to be for entrepreneurs, digital nomads and foodies. This city of Eternal Spring is definitely a place to put on your bucket list.
When I visited Medellin last year I was not a fan of the traffic, but the vibrancy of this hilly metropolis is simply intoxicating. My own personal highlight was a guided tour of the Comuna 13 where the sensory experience was on overload and it just made me feel so alive. The artistic colorful street murals (most also have an important message), combined with a mishmash of loud music styles and the hustle of local vendors was just an unforgettable unique experience.
The second largest city of Colombia has a subway system and it's easy to navigate, affordable and clean. Taxis and private transportation is also readily available and the cost is low compared to Europe or the USA. This means more pesos for amazing dinner experiences, delicious breakfasts or simply a smooth Colombian coffee.
Speaking of amazing food experiences, when you have had enough of the city's hustle and bustle, you can enjoy a restful stay at one of Colombia's most unique eco-lodges at about 1 hour from Medellin. The Cannua lodge is nestled in the middle of mountains with different shades of green and offers a Farm to Table food experience like no other. The menu is based on local ingredients sourced right at the lodge permaculture grounds and is a celebration of flavors and Colombia as a country. Paired with world-renowned South American wines, you will be wowed by the creativity of this health-conscious and inventive restaurant.
If you are looking to soothe the soul, being surrounded by beautiful nature is key. The sustainable lodge offers rooms and bungalows which all have gorgeous views over the expansive Saint Nicholas Valley. In addition, the property also offers a relaxing spa for herbal massages, hot stone massages or facials to melt any remaining stresses away.
