El Poblado is a district of Medellin, and a popular one at that. Funky, gentrified and overpriced for most locals, this is where tourists come to drink, chat and generally hang out. – Daniel If you’ve written a description for El Poblado you’d like to share with the community, send it to and we’ll post it right here in the directory.

This is Medellin‘s wealthiest neighbourhood. If you’re a traveller on a budget, you might want to skip this part of the city. A more authentic barrio experience would definitely be Santo Domingo. While this is pretty much the safest barrio around, it still pays to be cautious – especially after a few drinks and late at night. There are some pleasant cut-through parks to be explored in this area.
