    I made a map for downtown use where most the action is, PM me a email address and I will send you one, the one I post here gets reduced in size a bit and gets blurry.

    Paid member.

    If you are a paid member you should be able to get access to the Medellin Google map.

Also, I'm still confused, I'm reading the reports but I can't make heads or tails of the scene. This isn't my first rodeo, I've been to Thailand, Moscow, Rio, I've seen quite a bit, I just can't figure out (from what I've read) how it really works over there. THANK YOU GUYS SO SO MUCH!

    If chica quality and cost are the top two criteria, then Medellin is your place. Not as cosmopolitan as BsAs but to a foreigner, plenty exotic enough.

Followed by Cali for another 3 weeks, and then Ecuador (non-mongering) for about 2 weeks is looking very strong on paper. I'm not much for "anesthetized experiences.

    One thing you might consider is "Real City Tours Medellin". The walking tour is conducted in English and is free (although they would greatly appreciate tips at the end, if you enjoyed it). The tour is 3-4 hours long during the day in El Centro. You'll learn a lot about the history of Medellin. How some of the parques came into being. My trip was with about 25 people and only 1 other American (the rest were European). It was fabulous. Botero plaza, Parque de Las Luces, Parque Bolivar. They have other tours also which I will try on another occasion. There is also a coffee tour but it's expensive and an all day affair. I hear it is superb (especially if you're a coffee aficionado). Take the Metro-Cable to some of the barrios, or the Escalator to the top of Communa 13. As Jjbee said "if you're a doer" you're not going to have a single boring day.

    The historic and traditional center is El Centro, which is not a generally safe area. I know several people who always stay there with no problems. I also know several people who are terrified of the area.

    If you're going to have a lot of down time, you might run out of things to do in 3 weeks. I've heard many complaints that there's nothing to do here. I've also heard plenty of "I don't want to do that" when I offer suggestions. If you're the type who really wants to find something to do, you will find plenty. If you're the guy who just wants something to complain about, you'll find plenty of reasons to complain.

    Food is cheap. You can find a complete meal for about $2 including drink, typically fruit juice. The public transportation is very good and taxis are cheap. Walking is my preferred transportation and I average about 5 miles per day. In some areas you need to watch your step, not only for doggy treats, but because sidewalks are terrible. People are friendly.

    The mongering scene has been slow the last 10 days, but there were still options available. It is already picking up quickly. If you're coming in summer you'll have more options than you'll ever have time for.

    I actually don't know the answer at all, but you def gave me some very good key info. Again, thank you. So medellin has my favorite season as year round weather. WOW!! Chicas are top notch. Even better. I'm just trying to figure out if this is a place I can park my butt for about 3 weeks or so. I need the opinions of others as much as I need the facts HAHA!

    Process on how to get an extension on a 90 day tourist Visa

    Hola Dudes,

    I went down to the immigration office this morning to get an extension on my Tourist VISA since my 90 days were up in a couple of days. At a cost of only 92 mil, its a much cheaper and less hassle option than to book a flight out of the Country and re-enter.

    Colombia allows you to file a 90 day extension as long as the following do not apply. You do not stay more than six months consecutively. You cannot stay more than six months in one calendar year.

    An article in Medellin Living broke down the items you needed in order to get the extension processed. Things have slightly changed. You no longer need to fill out any paperwork at the immigration office, nor do you need to bring any passport photos. They will take your photo + prints at the office. What's now required is to fill out an application on their website, upload a copy of your passport info section, and print a verification page showing the app was registered. You will not be able to see an Immigration Officer unless you have this printout which states your application was, "Registered Successfully Completed.

    Bring this page along with your passport, copy of your passport photo / info page + copy of entrance stamp. Again, the cost is 92 mil. Keep in mind, they do not take cash, only credit cards. Cash payments are taken by a specific bank. The Medellin Living article has this info. Another option if you only have cash is to have another customer whose waiting pay with their credit card, and you pay them with pesos.

    On the application, they will ask for a person to contact in case of an emergency. I used a friend in the States, but couldn't put in his real address since it's coded for a Colombian address. I used the address for the apartment I'm renting here in MDE and was not asked to verify. The Agent asked for a local phone # in addition to my US cell #. I gave him the guys number whose renting the apartment to me, and he said that was fine.

    Total time it took to complete this process was about two hours. However, if I would've filled out the app prior to arriving, it would've saved me about an hour. Since I didn't register online, I had to go to an Internet cafe around the corner, and get that completed. Here's the link to the online app. http://www.migracioncolombia.gov.co/index.php/es/ Navigating on this site is a bit confusing. Find the menu icon and click "Tramites", then, "Cedula de Extranjeria". Click it and you should be taken to the online app.

    Oficina de Migracion Colombia.

    Address: Calle 19 #80 A-40, Barrio Belen, Medellin.

    Try to get there when it opens at 8 in the AM before it gets busy.

    Late,

    Judd.

    Question for you guys

    Hey guys, I have a question for anyone who has stayed in both Argentina AND Colombia for extended periods of time.

    How does Medellin compare with Buenos Aires in a general sense?

    I'm talking about everyday living. I understand that's different for everybody, but I just wanted an idea of how the two compare. I'm sure that someone else has spoken of it, but times have changed over the last few years, so I thought I'd ask anew. I like to stay in apartments because I don't like being controlled on my comings and goings. But I always stay in the historic center of a city so I can walk everywhere, and those are usually safer. In BAs I stayed in a fully-furnished short term apartment in San Telmo, which was perfect (except for the dogsh*t everywhere hehelol). I was wrapped in history, bohemian intellectualism, everything was walking distance, especially really REALLY good restaurants, for a tenth of what I'd pay in America for the same. As far as the weather goes, I'm looking to escape the triple-digit summer heat of where I come from and figured this would be a really nice way to do it. S America stays nice and cool so I'm going to be there for about 6 weeks, and in that sense, I am on a budget.

    The only thing about BAs is that the mongering scene is also dogsh*t (read that forum, trust me). From what I gather, Medellin does not have that problem.

    But what of the rest of it? What are the practicalities of living there compared to living in BAs? Is "walking" also synonymous with "hopscotch"? A warm thanks in advance for the help!

    Good info on the passport photos. As general info, if in a large city and needing passport photos, in a pinch go to an embassy. A lot of them will have photo places right nearby. Paraguayan embassy in Buenos Aires conveniently has one in the same block. Conveniently, this place appears to be owned by one or more relatives of one or more of the chicas who work in said embassy. Conveniently, the women who work in the paraguayan embassy are all so good looking that by the time I got done with that place, my dick was so fucking hard that I did not have enough skin left to blink my eyes.
