visiting to research Medellin areas this early Dec. 2017

Hello to everyone - I am hoping to contact mainly senior expats living in the Medellin areas for guidance and advice, prior to my first visit there this Dec.

I now live in San Diego, CA.  Lived in Argentina 6 years producing fine wine and selling internationally.  Have visited for business/pleasure 11 countries over the past 40 years, mas o menos.  Love life and all it has to offer!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously considering Medellin area for long term "life".  Am 71, love tennis/golf biking, hiking, etc. etc.

Also, exploring the country I will live in. 

I am hoping to contact, now via this site, my email, etc.,  some expats in the Medellin area that will help with my many questions and maybe meet with me while I am there (free lunch for anyone who might have the time to casually get together during my "research visit" there this Dec.).

Is there anyone out there willing to correspond and assist me?????

tcwine,  just ask your questions in a post and see if anyone responds.  Most people are willing to help but the purpose of the forum is to post and answer questions so that all who read them might benefit.

You can also try this forum, it can be helpful as it has many knowledgeable and sometimes quite opinionated expat posters: … ombia.html


I am in the same process myself.
I will be arriving in Medellin on November 22 and will be there in December, if you buy first lunch I will buy second one.

In the mean time go see this web site, it full of very good information about Medellin:

I will contact you win private!

I live in Envigado. I can meet with you for coffee. Lunch isn't necessary.
