Yes- although Medellin was once known as the most dangerous place to live in Colombia, this up-and-coming tourist destination is now lauded as being twice as safer as New Orleans. To boost your safety in this city, I’d recommend using ATMs in shopping malls and grocery stores. At any cost, avoid the ATMs on the streets, especially those with few people. Secondly, don’t go flashing money, cameras, and jewelry around. This may attract unwanted attention.
