Full description
Meet your bilingual driver at your accommodation and get off the beaten track to Medellin's most traditional fondas. Embark on a personalized journey of Medellin's night culture and experience a fun-filled night. 

Once you arrive, there will be enough free time to explore the fonda vibe, buy snacks and take pictures to show your friends at home what they are missing out. It is recommended to bring cash with you since many stores do not accept credit cards.
