Dreaming of being a Medellin digital nomad?
When you think of digital nomad destinations – the popular ones are usually Bali and Chiang Mai. More recently, Medellin has earned its way to the top of the destinations digital nomads keep visiting!
We spent nearly 4 months living as Medellin digital nomads and we can confirm it’s a top place to work remotely while having a great lifestyle!
Medellin has so much to offer digital nomads, travelers and expats alike. It’s no wonder this city is exploding with growth!
In this complete guide, we have included everything we wanted/needed information on to help you ease into the digital nomad life in Colombia much easier.
You’ll learn about simple life admin things like which SIM card to get to or the wifi speeds around the city to the best cafes to work from and an honest cost of living.
For all you need to know about being a Medellin digital nomad, you can find it all on this blog right here.
Let’s get started!
What’s Medellin, Colombia Like?
Medellin surprised us in so many ways.
This city has had a dark past with wars on drugs and major safety issues. While Colombia isn’t perfect, the city and its people have done a tremendous job in moving forward. They let the past stay in the past and it doesn’t define their future as a people/country.
That’s one of the most amazing things we experienced while living as a Medellin digital nomad. We were constantly impressed by the resilience of the Colombians and the leaps the city has made in terms of infrastructure, transport and technology!
Medellin is the most popular city in Colombia for digital nomads, expats and travelers to visit. How popular exactly?
In the early 2000s, Colombia only saw 700,000 tourists per year. Fast forward to 2019, there are 4.5 million visitors each year. That’s right – a 543% increase!
Despite being the most popular city in Colombia for digital nomads, it actually isn’t the capital of Colombia. Bogota is! Bogota is looked at as the business hub, where politics place and its the highest populated city.
Medellin is that cool, hip city that’s popular for the amazing restaurant scene, the exciting things to do and the booming tech industry. If you decide to become a Latin America digital nomad, Medellin is usually at the top of that list closely followed by Mexico City and Buenos Aires!
Why Become A Digital Nomad In Medellin?
Medellin has continued to be one of the top 10 digital nomad destinations for years now. We have always wondered for ourselves, why is that?
Is Medellin a popular digital nomad city because of its:
- spring-like weather all year round?
- buzzing digital nomad community?
- fast, reliable wifi connection?
- vast array of things to do (hikes, beaches, nightlife, etc)?
- friendly, welcoming locals?
- great value for money?
Absolutely! All of these things combined are usually what digital nomads look for when basing themselves in a new city/country. Well, the only thing missing is probably a beach – but you can’t have everything 😛
If you’re a Medellin digital nomad, it’s easy to have a great work-life balance! There are plenty of coworking spaces and cafes to get your work done. On the weekends, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to explore nearby towns that are perfect for day trips from Medellin, you can get away to other cities like Cartagena, Santa Marta, Bogota and more. You could also do something totally crazy and go paragliding over the city of Medellin just like us!
But that’s probably just something you’ve heard. It’s hard to tell what’s true or not with all the information out on the internet nowadays. Matthew and I heard a lot of buzz around Medellin but it wasn’t enough for us. We wanted to experience it for ourselves to get a clear picture of what it’s truly like.
The Complete Medellin Digital Nomad Guide (2022)
If you want a sugar-coated review of Medellin for digital nomads where we tell you only the good bits, you’re in the wrong place.
Matthew and I spent nearly 4 months living as Medellin digital nomads. In this blog post, we’re going to share everything you need to know about living in Medellin, our honest review of this city as digital nomads – the things we liked about it and the things we disliked about it.
How To Buy A SIM Card in Medellin Colombia
One of the first things you’ll need to do when you arrive in Colombia as a digital nomad is to get a SIM card! Sometimes this is an easy task and other times it can be a total nightmare.
With SIM cards in Colombia, it could go either way. When we were researching which companies were the best for prepaid monthly plans, we came up with these 2 options:
These 2 companies are the most reputable with the widest coverage across the country. This was important to us in case we flew to Cartagena for the weekend or simply went to a small town near Medellin like Jardin!
Here’s a simple way to buy your SIM card:
Choose a SIM card company: Tigo vs. Claro.
Tigo has the best coverage all across Colombia. We found that they also had capacity for LTE coverage whereas we only ever got 4G coverage on Claro. If we could have a do-over, we wouldn’t go with Claro ourselves. So don’t follow us and get Tigo lol!
Find the best data plan for you.
Tigo offers less data but it also costs less. With Claro, you’ll need to buy the SIM card which is an extra $3,000 COP (less than $1 USD). These are the data plans when we were Medellin digital nomads:
- TIGO for 30 days: 10 GB for $30,000 COP ($8 USD)
- CLARO for 30 days: 12 GB for $40,000 COP ($11 USD)
Go to an official store to buy your SIM card.
Only buy your SIM card at an official Tigo or Claro store which can be found at any mall. We have heard horror stories of people get locked out of their phones because they weren’t officially registered! Don’t buy brand new SIM cards at tiendas/off the street! If you do this, you could get locked out of your phone and you’ll have to contact their main office to get it unlocked which is a pain!
*Important: You need your passport to buy a SIM card in Colombia!
Matthew and I bought Claro SIM cards simply because their official store was located in the mall that was nearby, Santafe Mall. Just give them your passport and they will take care of the rest for you!
Done with physical SIM cards? Try an eSIM!
According to Apple’s latest phone updates, physical SIM cards are a thing of the past. The future of phone data is going to be eSIMs! We have been using eSIMs since 2019 and we have to admit they are a total game changer.
We love using Nomad eSIM or Airalo eSIM whichever one gives us the cheapest (or largest) data package. Simply download the apps, connect to wifi and buy the data package that’s right for you! And bam, you’ve got data for your time as a Medellin digital nomad.
Make sure you check out our complete guide to the best esim providers for travel!
Best Time To Visit Medellin for Digital Nomads
Is there a best time to visit Medellin as a digital nomad?
Yes! While Medellin is known for having some of the most perfect weather all year round, it does have its fair share of bad weather. The City of Eternal Spring will often have a rainy season for a few weeks! Unfortunately for us, we have experienced some of it and lived to tell the tale.
The best time to visit as a Medellin digital nomad is from December to March. This gives you the most days with sunshine and the least chance of rainy days! It makes a difference – trust us. If you want to get out and explore, avoid visiting Medellin from April, May and September to November.
In our experience, the rain came around April and it just didn’t stop. Every single day, it was cloudy and especially heavy rain in the afternoon. If we wanted to get out and do things, we had to do all the activities in the morning!
Otherwise, Medellin weather is honestly some of the best we have ever experienced. Why? It’s just perfect – it’s never too hot and never too cold. You don’t need a jacket but you also don’t feel like you need to hide inside with the air conditioning on! I can’t really explain it more than that, you’ll just have to experience it for yourself as a Medellin digital nomad.
Where To Stay in Medellin – 3x Best Neighborhoods
Not sure which area will be right for you? There are great areas for digital nomads to live in and it’s all based on your preferences. Before you just choose a neighborhood in Medellin, there are a couple of things you should know:
🚡 The hills in Medellin are no joke! Remember when I mentioned that Medellin is situated in a valley surrounded by mountains? Well, some of those neighborhoods are located on the side of those mountains! If you live in Poblado, Envigado or Sabaneta, you can expect to get a leg workout every single day you get out of your house. That’s why Laureles has grown so popular because it’s so much easier to walk around the neighborhood.
💰 The costs vary based on each neighborhood. We found that everything was about 10-20% more expensive in Poblado for things like food, drinks and even accommodation. Laureles was a little cheaper than Poblado but you got better value for money in terms of accommodation. If you want the best value for money, Envigado and Sabaneta are only just getting discovered.
💃 The vibe is different in each neighborhood. If you love to party and meet new people, El Poblado is a great place to do that! It’s the main tourist area and there are also plenty of restaurants, and bars to visit daily. If you love a more slow-paced and local lifestyle with the digital nomad conveniences like a coworking space, Laureles is the place for you.
Here’s a quick summary of the best areas for a Medellin digital nomad to stay in:
- 🗺 Top 4 Neighborhoods: Laureles, Poblado, Envigado and Sabaneta
- 🦺 Safest Areas: Laureles, Poblado, Envigado and Sabaneta
- ⚠️ Dangerous Areas To Avoid: Centro, La Candelaria, Prado
- 💃 Best Nightlife & Restaurants: El Poblado and Laureles are the best
- 🇨🇴 Best Area To Live Like A Local: Envigado or Sabaneta
- 👨🏼💻 Overall Best Area For Digital Nomads: Laureles
We actually spent half of our time in El Poblado and the other half in Laureles to see which one we felt was best as a Medellin digital nomad.
In our personal experience, Laureles was just more of our vibe. It’s not as crowded as Poblado but you’ve still got things like restaurants, cafes and coworking spaces all scattered around the area. You will also see much more locals and see how they live their daily life which is great! If we had to choose where to stay in Medellin, we would choose Laureles again and again but that’s our personal preference.
If you like to stay where all the action is, Poblado is a great place. It’s so much easier to meet people and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to go to more cool events!
In the end, the best neighborhood is the one that suits you and your lifestyle the most. Choose wisely and beware of those Medellin hills! 😛
Transport Options – How To Get Around Medellin
Are you wondering how to get around Medellin as a digital nomad?
Most nomads don’t own a car and it’s pretty rare for us to visit cities where you need to get rental cars. Being a Medellin digital nomad means you don’t have to worry about transport – there will always be an option for you!
What transport options exactly? Here’s how you get around Medellin:
- Taxi (Standard & Uber)
- Cable Cars
Taking The Metro As A Medellin Digital Nomad
The metro in Medellin is something that paisas (locals from Medellin) are absolutely proud of and it’s become a real cultural experience. Why is it such a big deal?
It signifies a lot of growth, innovation and a step in the right direction for the Colombian people. The metro is also kept very clean, safe and it’s quite reliable! There’s a lot to be proud of, really.
Even if you don’t use the metro every day as your main mode of transport, try taking it at least once! A lot of people say if you didn’t take the metro in Medellin – did you REALLY visit Medellin? The right answer would be no (according to the locals)!
Should You Take Taxis As A Medellin Digital Nomad?
Your normal, standard taxi that you flag down may or may not rip you off. We never took a taxi just off the streets so we can’t really say what would happen.
There’s Uber available in Medellin! Is it totally legal? We were never sure about that but it seemed like they liked to keep it hush hush. If your Uber driver says something to you in Spanish as you get in the back seat – it’s probably them telling you to sit in the front with them. This helps them claim that you’re a friend if ever police pull them over (or something along those lines).
Uber in Medellin is very cheap! You can expect to pay anywhere between (x – x). If it rains and there’s traffic, we’ve had to pay upwards of $10 USD which was a lot for what we got used to paying in Medellin (but that only happened once).
We used Uber to travel back and forth between Laureles and Poblado, it was also just very easy to order a car. We felt very safe using Uber as Medellin digital nomads. I (Ashley) also felt comfortable whenever I went as a solo female whenever Matt wasn’t with me.
You can take an Uber from Medellin Airport to the city but again – you’ll have to walk a bit to the parking lot. They aren’t able to pick you up from the arrivals area!
Taking The Bus and/or Cable Cars in Medellin
We never took the bus because we weren’t confident enough with our Spanish levels. It was also hard to figure out where it went, where it stopped and all that jazz. It’s very cheap though, much cheaper than the metro if you want to take the bus to Medellin!
As for cable cars, they are mostly used for transport to certain barrios up on the hills. In the center of the valley, you won’t find cable cars but there are plenty of them near Comuna 13 (which is a must-visit). You can also take the cable cars on a more scenic route like we did. There’s a special cable car that travels from Santo Domingo to Parque Arvi and it’s about 20 minutes long. You’ll get beautiful views of the forest, city and a small glimpse of life in the barrios below!
The transport options are what make being a Medellin digital nomad pretty great. We loved the ease and convenience of all the 4 options we could take every time!
Where To Get Groceries In Medellin
Groceries in Medellin aren’t as complicated as say doing groceries as a Lake Atitlan digital nomad (iykyk).
There are 2 great choices for doing groceries around the city, no matter where you live:
What’s the difference between the 2 grocery stores? Exito is more your standard supermarket that’s a little more cost-effective and has all you could want for your daily needs. Carulla has much more variety and those little items you can’t find anywhere (eg. Asian sauces, cold cuts/cheese, etc). It may cost a little more for certain items but it’s a much cleaner, relaxing shopping experience!
Matthew and I shopped at whichever one was closest to us. While we were living in Poblado, we had a pretty big Exito which was sufficient for whatever we wanted to cook. The Exito in Laureles wasn’t great and very limited for our liking. That’s why while we were living in Laureles, we always decided to go to Carulla instead.
Want a low-cost option? D1 tiendas became a very popular option for us as we lived close to one. You can get very cheap items that are still great quality there. It’s a good option if you don’t want the hassle of going to the bigger supermarkets!
There are also smaller tiendas scattered across the city that offer your basic things like fruits, eggs and drinks. And I can’t forget to mention the awesome guys that walk across the streets in Laureles yelling “aguacate, pina, mango, etc”. They have pretty good fruit and you just run down from your apartment and buy the fruits from them!
You can’t really go wrong with grocery shopping as a Medellin digital nomad.
Honest Cost of Living for Medellin Digital Nomads
Is Medellin as cheap as you think?
Remember, Medellin has grown in popularity in recent years as digital nomads, expats and tourists are beginning to discover its true beauty!
We can honestly say that it wasn’t as cheap as we thought (or heard) it would be. Why’s that? The rental prices for apartments are skyrocketing! Matthew and I do pretty well to get good deals on Airbnb (despite their poor service :P) and it was still difficult to get anything as low or as good value for money as Southeast Asia!
Here’s a quick idea of what things generally cost as a Medellin digital nomad:
- 🏠 1 Bedroom Apartment in a Nice Area: $700 USD per month
- 💰 Cost of Living For a Local: $350 USD per month
- 🍽 Nice Restaurant Meals: $12-23 USD
- 🌮 Street food: $2-4 USD
- 🍺 Local beer: $1.30 USD
- ☕️ Coffee: $1.70 USD
The biggest expense for us while being Medellin digital nomads was rent. We moved around about 3 times in Medellin to test out some neighborhoods – our rental price ranged anywhere from $650 – $900 USD. We found Poblado to be more expensive than any of the places we rented in Laureles.
What about all the other expenses? Here’s a quick breakdown of our costs as a couple living as Medellin digital nomads for 1 month:
|Activities & Entertainment||$124|
This was a great month for us as a couple! We can see how you can definitely live on the cheap in Medellin but it’s also really easy to increase your expenses without realizing it.
There are some really nice, fine-dining restaurants and clubs that people enjoy going to and splurging on. But there are things like the menu del dia where you pay only 15,000 COP to 20,000 COP ($3.85-$5.20 USD) for a soup, main dish and juice!
We found entertainment surprisingly cheap for things like a day trip to Guatape and/or taking the cable cars to Parque Arvi.

ATMs/Making Payments in Medellin
Which are the best ATMs for digital nomads in Medellin?
Getting money withdrawals from the ATMs in Medellin can be tricky if you don’t know which one to use. We still have nightmares about the withdrawal fees in Mexico and Greece!
When we first arrived as Medellin digital nomads, getting cash is one of the first things we needed to and we didn’t want to get it wrong. Matthew hates and avoids fees like the plague! You can bet he will research and test out ATMs to find the best ones.
Here’s the thing: you can *usually* find a bank that will allow you to withdraw for free. Not always, but usually!
Here’s the best ATMs that Medellin digital nomads can withdraw for free:
- Banco Caja Social
These bank ATMs are scattered all over the city that whichever Medellin neighborhood you’ll be able to find one nearby! Otherwise, the malls are very reliable for having ATMs and a good amount of choices at that.
For payments in Medellin, you can *almost* always pay via card (tap, insert). We found only the odd restaurant wouldn’t accept but if we had to quantify it we probably paid card around 93% of our time in Medellin!
How To Get Your Laundry Done In Medellin?
Laundry is fairly straightforward in Medellin!
We found that every apartment we booked had its own washing machine. A total rarity from our Southeast digital nomad days! This seemed like it was normal for a good amount of houses listed on Airbnb to have washing machines included – a couple of our friends also had their own.
Otherwise, you’ll have to find some spots that will wash for you. Funny enough, across one of the most popular cafes, Pergamino Cafe, is this Beer & Laundry place – it’s literally called that! More local places just have a sign that says “lavanderia” and you can bring your laundry there.
Where To Get Your Nails Done In Medellin?
I always want to include this because I’m always searching for a good place to get my nails done at a relatively good price. I will literally only get my nails down if it’s good value for money – any more than $40 USD for gel nails and I’m out!
Oh Nails Studio is the best place to get your nails done if you’re like me! The studio is very cute, well-designed and just relaxing. Their nail technicians are pretty talented if you want some fancy nail art (I’m basic and just choose a color).
For a gel manicure and gel pedicure combo, it will only cost $80,000 COP ($16 USD). Seriously, it’s just unbeatable value for money! The ladies did such a great job and it’s a smooth booking process. Simply text them on WhatsApp and book a date/time. If you want, you can also book directly with their calendar management system here and you’ll be penciled in!
Thanks to digging through Facebook groups, I was able to find Oh Nails Studio and got to have my nails done twice while I was in Medellin!
Medellin Internet Speeds – Is The Wifi Fast Enough?
Worried about the wifi speeds in a city situated on mountains?
Medellin has some of the fastest wifi speeds we have seen across our travels. Colombia in general has some of the fastest and best wifi connections across South America.
This is partly why Medellin has become such a digital nomad hotspot (other than the fact that New Yorkers can work EST time zones :P).
We experienced different speeds across our 4 months living in Medellin. Our first Airbnb had fast speeds of 300+ Mbps and our other Airbnb had wifi struggles and we got around 10 Mbps which is actually our lowest speed test in Medellin.
At most cafes, restaurants and coworking speeds, you can expect speeds of at least 20 Mbps and the fastest we’ve seen was 240+ Mbps at a coworking space.
Bottom line: Wifi speeds aren’t an issue for a Medellin digital nomad!
Is There A Coworking Space For Medellin Digital Nomads?
Is that even a question?!
Of course! Medellin, Colombia is a top digital nomad hotspot for a reason and one of those is because there are some great spaces for coworking!
Some people despise coworking spaces and others rave about them. It’s all about you and what helps you get your work done best.
Matthew and I are in the middle of this popular digital nomad debate. We love having a mix between coworking spaces and working from cafes to give us some variety! And I could never be as productive working from home – I don’t know what it is but maybe being so close to the fridge and distractions are what keep us from WFH!
Are you looking for:
- fast, reliable wifi?
- comfortable chairs and desks?
- active digital nomad scene?
You’ll find all that and more in a coworking space in Medellin!
Here are the 3 best coworking spaces for digital nomads in Medellin:
- Semilla Cafe & Coworking (Laureles)
- Open Space (Poblado)
- Quokka Coworking (Poblado)
If you live in Laureles, there really is no better space than Semilla Coworking. We had a 1-month membership and it was great! The chairs were comfy, the staff was friendly and the wifi was stable.
The only thing about Semilla was that we wished there were more events so that we had a little bit more of a community. For only $126 USD per month, we think Semilla is a great coworking option for a Medellin digital nomad!
What if you live in Poblado? We absolutely loved Open Space! It’s not your typical coworking space with ergonomic chairs or monthly memberships. That’s right, no monthly fee – just a very fair daily fee which is $3.80 USD which includes 1/3 of the money going towards a drink at the cafe.
While it isn’t the comfiest coworking space, we loved the vibe and the flexibility of their membership at Open Space! It’s perfect for a Medellin digital nomad that wants to cafe hop but has a reliable spot when they need to focus.
Don’t want to pay for coworking?
This is going to prove Medellin is THE spot for digital nomads. Inside most of their malls, they actually have free coworking zones!
You can find free coworking zones in these malls in Medellin:
- El Tesoro Shopping Park
- Centro Comercial Oviedo
- Centro Comercial Viva Envigado
- Santafé Mall
You don’t need to pay for anything – simply sit down, pull your laptop and connect to the free wifi! Isn’t Medellin amazing?!
3 Best Cafes for Medellin Digital Nomads to Work From
Speaking of cafe hopping, you’re probably wanting the inside scoop on the best cafes to work from as a Medellin digital nomad.
We did our best to go to different cafes across neighborhoods like Poblado and Laureles but we kept circling back to these 3 cafes to get work done.
Here are just 3 of the best cafes for a Medellin digital nomad:
- Pergamino Cafe (Poblado)
- Delmuri Cafe (Laureles)
- Hija Mia Coffee Roasters (Poblado)
Want more cafe recommendations? Here’s our complete guide of the 9x best cafes to work from in Medellin.
Is There A Digital Nomad Community in Medellin?
This is a top question we get asked about being a Medellin digital nomad.
For a digital nomad hotspot that’s continuously on the top of the charts on Nomad List, it must have a vibrant digital nomad community…right?
Well, Matthew and I joined coworking spaces, attended meetups, and joined a volleyball group but we just didn’t really seem to click. A lot of people suggested going to the language exchange nights but they seemed to party well into the night which isn’t necessarily our crowd.
We love having a small, tight-knit community of like-minded people who are building businesses/working online and traveling at the same time. In saying that, we did meet one awesome guy named Jeremy from the volleyball group who we still keep in touch with. There was one girl reached out on the Medellin digital nomad Facebook groups, I responded and we went out together with a Dutch couple, Jody and Sander bonding over amazing Thailand. We got to see them again in the Netherlands over the summer which is my favorite part about digital nomad friends!
From there, we met the majority of our friends at a coliving space, Casa Santafe! Although it’s not your typical coliving setup (it’s more hotel than coliving), we were still able to meet fellow digital nomads (hey Shiv, Ivo, Dio, Char) and we got along really well. The coliving spaces in Medellin are fantastic and we highly recommend trying to book one in advance!
Here are some groups you should join when becoming a Medellin digital nomad:
- Digital Nomads Medellin
- GringoPaisa (Americans In Medellin)
- Medellin Expats
- Medellin Expats and Colombia Insight
Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there! We were able to make some good friends because our friend posted about meeting fellow like-minded digital nomads. We didn’t attend as many events as we expected but we could sense there was a strong digital nomad and expat community.
Our 5 Favorite Restaurants in Medellin, Colombia
Are the restaurants good for a Medellin digital nomad?
You bet! There is so much variety and high-quality food experience available for anyone willing to check out the restaurant scene. Matthew and I loved trying all the different restaurants because you could get a variety of Thai food, Colombian food, Italian food, Vietnamese food and even Amazonian food!
Here are 5 of our favorite Medellin restaurants:
- Alambique (Poblado): High-end Colombian Food
- Oh La La Bistro (Poblado): French Bistrot Style
- Uno Mas Uno (Laureles): Best Menu del Dia In Medellin

Is Medellin Safe For Digital Nomads?
If you asked someone 20 years ago, the answer would be “no”.
Medellin, Colombia has had a dark past with guerilla wars, drugs – you name it. However, the most inspiring thing for us when we were Medellin digital nomads was that the people were not defined by their past.
This allowed the City of Eternal Spring to move forward in the world! Medellin has come so far in terms of progressing to a better and brighter future. The world is only starting to notice now!
With that said, it’s still not perfect and 100% safe (like anywhere in the world). In our personal experience, we felt very safe in Medellin and nothing ever happened to us. However, we did hear about incidents happening around us with things like scopolamine and robberies.
We frequently had lunch at SMASH like any normal day, it’s in a pretty safe area in Laureles where many expats roam. The one day we didn’t have lunch there, someone got robbed at gunpoint by 2 men on a motorbike. They took his laptop and phone – he left the country quite soon after (as he should because it’s pretty traumatizing). Stories like this made me (Ashley) especially have the thought in the back of my mind all the time so I didn’t feel like I could completely relax. Matthew didn’t seem to be phased too much by it. I guess it also just depends on you and how safe (or not) you’ll be able to feel!
Again – we spent 4 months there and nothing of the sort happened to us! The only thing you can do is stay vigilant, aware and make smart decisions. For us, Medellin was safe and can be safe for digital nomads to stay just like any other city in the world.

Is It Worth It To Become A Medellin Digital Nomad?

- fast wifi everywhere you go
- plenty of cafes and coworking spaces to work from
- big, active digital nomad community to connect

- and so much more!
Ever since we got into the digital nomad lifestyle, Medellin has been a city on our bucket list for a while now. Why?
It’s almost a right of passage as a digital nomad to have lived in Medellin for a while. Just like Chiang Mai is the ultimate digital nomad destination for people just starting this lifestyle. We had to see what it was like to be a digital nomad in Medellin!
What are your thoughts on Medellin as a destination for digital nomads?
