Overview
Only a few years ago, the Comuna 13 neighborhood was the most dangerous community in the city of Medellin but today it's the most colorful and vibrant communities in the city. After the government and private sector invested in social and youth programs the local residents and artists reclaimed the neighborhoods and contributed to the miraculous transformation which we see today, the streets filled with incredible street art, music, street performers, vendors selling tasty local snacks A great opportunity to explore the lively streets in Comuna 13 while meeting local residents and artists, a unique cultural and memorable experience.

We were one of the first post pandemic tourists to take this and was not disappointed. We had Walter for a guide and his knowledge of everything really made the tour extra special. We first met up at the metro station, a short distance further to the San Javier station where we rode the gondola to the top for some amazing views of the city. Afterwards we did the Comuna 13 tour. Things are just opening up from the pandemic but possibly this made it extra special as we were the only tourists there with no crowds. Amazing mural painting's, views and try the refreshing popsicle that your tour guide will do a short stop for!
