One of the World's Best Cities

Festival of Lights in Medellin

Medellin is sometimes referred to as “The City of Lights” and this is never more true than during the Christmas and New Years season (usually the last three weeks of December and the first week of January).

During this time, the entire city has hundreds of spectacular light displays in public parks, which are made anew each year, and the people of Medellin, as well as tourists, are roaming around or cruising by in cars and buses to spectate.

Los Alumbrados de Medellin, as it’s known in Spanish, is one of the best times of the year to visit Medellin. The weather is near perfect every day. Never too hot, and never too cold, and very little rain.
