Although this looks nice and probably mostly also is safe and peaceful place, the barrios of Medellin are known to be dangerous areas. Robbery and drug related killings is sadly a part of life for the people that lives here. If you would like to see these areas you should probably go in daytime after consulting colombias helpful police inspectors or go with someone local that you know you can trust.
I filmed this in 2001 during the festival of flowers and recently put it together. Feria de las flores takes place every year in august, in Medellin to celebrate the flowers of Colombia. Colombia is the 2nd largest exporter of flowers in the world! This is a great time to visit medellin for those of you who are curious - there is somthing to do every day of the week..
