Santo Domingo is a district of Medellin, and a notorious one at that. Famous for being a recruitment hotspot for Pablo Escobar, this barrio (neighbourhood) is now very much welcoming visitors and looking to a promising future. – Daniel

This is said to be one of Medellin‘s poorest and most dangerous barrios. But don’t let that put you off. The views are very impressive and the people we experienced friendly and welcoming.
Consider visiting Santo Domingo on the Metrocable. It’s a cheap and beautiful journey up the mountain by gondola, and you could even continue all the way onto Parque Arvi.
There are some cheap but decent spots for an almuerzo (set lunch) here if you get hungry.
