04 Feb 14 Ways to See Medellín, The World’s Most Dangerous City

Medellín, pronounced as “me-de-jin” with a very subtle “j” on the last syllable.

Once declared as the most dangerous and violent city in the world, it has undergone a major transformation within the past two decades making it almost unrecognizable to residents who grew up during the notorious era. It is fast becoming a top pick in the traveling community and a comfortable haven for digital nomads as well.

Here’s how to experience the new Medellín like a pro:
