If I have only 3 days to spend, which one is better, Bogota or Medellin?
Both have their pros & cons Paisas will say Medellin bc of it's climate etc.
Cachacos say Bogota is the the capital & the center of the country ;- )
If you want my honest opinion (this might cause some debate) Medellin gets my nod .For a few good reasons I've spent years in Bogota & on the most part travel thru Medellin on the way to another location.This is where I leave to let CDY take the stage & tell you what Medellin has to offer.
Hands down - for 3 days no doubt Medellin!
Climate plays a big part - much nicer in Medellin
Cheaper in medellin
Medellin is easier to get around
More of an international feel to Bogota -
probably a little more to see in Bogota - but you only have 3 days so both cities will have plenty to do.
I find Paisas to be a little more friendly than the locals in Bogota
The women are are better looking in Medellin - actually - not 100% sure because everytime I go to Bogota it is cool and damp and everybody has jackets on - here in Medellin, unless it is raining the highs are in the 80's the lows in the 60's - so no need of a jacket and people aren't bundled up as they are in Bogota.- so I find the women dress sexier here - of course if you are married - just skip over this point.
