Have some drinks with your friends
If you’re looking for something to do on a Saturday night, there are plenty of bars around Medellin that offer the perfect atmosphere. You’ll be able to meet new people, relax with friends and celebrate special occasions all in one place.
Whether it’s your first time out or if you’ve been going out for years, we have some suggestions for where to go:
- La Bodegona (Colombia): This bar has live music every night from 10pm until 2am! There’s also an outdoor area outside where they host DJs and events throughout the year.
- Guayabo (Colombia): Located in Antioquia province, this bar plays salsa music all day long—so if you like dancing your ass off then this is the place for you! The owner even plays piano himself when he gets bored enough which makes things even better!
Participate in an outdoor event such as a salsa party or a karaoke contest
- Salsa parties are a great way to get involved in the city’s nightlife scene and meet beautiful people.
- For those who aren’t familiar with salsa, it’s a type of dance that originated in Mexico and has become popular throughout Latin America and even Europe. The dances are usually performed while holding hands or spinning around each other like they’re twirling their skirts (which is typical for many types of Latin music). You can learn how to join in on these fun-filled events by attending one as part of your Medellin tourism trip!
- There are plenty of places where you can find them—from bars and clubs to parks and beaches—so be sure to check out several before deciding where your favorite spot might be located. The best place for beginners would probably be somewhere like Bogota’s Plaza de Bolivar because there will likely be more people there who want help learning new skills than there are at other locations; however if this isn’t what works best for you then try looking up information about different kinds of music from around South America before making any final decisions about which ones might work best depending upon what kind(s)
Go to a theatre show in La Macarena
