Last year, I was very excited because I was going to travel to Medellin for the first time, it is one of my favorite cities. When I arrived in Medellín at night, I was very amazed by how beautiful the city is. We toured some important places in the city like the stadium, I was Fascinated with this place. We also went to La Piedra del Peñol, it is a very beautiful place but I was Frightened and worried because I'm afraid of heights. It was perhaps one of my best experiences although it only lasted two days due to the problem of the pandemic

We went to a match on which the Independiente Medellin and Deportivo Tachira (from Venezuela) played. The atmosphere was great with all the local fans. I cant even imagine how is their own "el clasico" -match going to be if on this match we had so good time.

Please notice that there is no ticket booth anywhere near stadium except a long search on the game day on which we found a small booth behind a metal fence surrounded by two policemen. It was located on the north east corner behind the stadium next to road.

.Well worth trying to catch a soccer game in Medellin. My wife and I took in three games over the last three weeks while in Medellin. My tips:

1. Buying tickets is confusing. Tickets do not go on sale to the public until three days before each game. You can buy tickets at the stadium (window 2) or at a number of retailers throughout the city (several of these are at malls).

2. We bought our tickets at the stadium. This is a pain because you are talking through a dark screen to a person you can't see, and there are people standing all around you trying to scalp tickets. Ticket prices range from really cheap to over 30.00 per ticket. Warning: Seating is very segregated. You will be sitting in the section where you buy your ticket....you can't buy cheap and move to the good seats.

3. The games are great. Soccer quality is good and the fans are really passionate. The stadium is a 5 min walk from the metro and is safe. There is a ton of security, and tons of people scalping tickets outside. We bought our tickets in advance so I cannot speak to what type of prices there are asking, or whether the tickets are real.

4. No large bags allowed into the stadium.....They sell beer, soda, and all kinds of junk food.

5. If you are there for the Classico (Independiente v Athletico) definitely buy a ticket even if you don't like sports or soccer....a truly wonderful Medellin cultural event.

6. We went to Envigado and watched a match there. Even though Envigado plays in the A league, their stadium is like going to a minor league baseball stadium....much different experience than going in Medellin.

I have had the opportunity to go to many World Cups, Copa Americas, Euros, and nothing compares to the environment during one of the local matches here. Be prepared to stand for the full 90 minutes. The passion is incredible.

They have everything you can ever ask for: for fitness junkies to people watchers, just go here! Swimming, running, jogging, gymnastics, dancing, skateboarding, martial arts, fitness classes, gyms, and more! You can grab a bite to eat at one of the local shops or just wander around. Highly recommend.

Watched the cup match DIM vs Santa Fe in this stadium. It's a must to watch a football match in South America while travelling. If you really want to feel the atmosphere buy a ticket for North. Watch out with people selling tickets on the street, close to the stadium is an official ticket shop.
