MEDELLIN TRAVEL BLOG FOR MEN
MEDELLIN HERE I COME BABY…
Today I’m headed out to Medellin. Catching a flight tonight. This is me on the plane. My flight from cali was about $800 which is more than it was all the way to thailand at $600. Oh well, I have heard about Medellin for so many years we are about to see if she lives up to the hype. I got a full 2 months down here so we will see what is in store. We were flying over Panama and I saw several boats waiting overnight to go through the panama canal. It was pretty cool to see from the plane. Now let’s get to the trip report brother.
Touch down in Medellin on Sunday. I did this on purpose because I wanted to come in when it was slow and build up to the weekend. Rented a room on AirBNB for $131 for the first week. This also goes for about $450 a month, which is a little inflated for americans. We call it the gringo price where the prices for tourists are double the normal. It’s all gringo pricing on Airbnb, but it’s not a big deal if you are staying short term. I wanted to rent a room first to meet other travelers and then get my own apartment a week later. These hosts have about 8 houses. The best ones are in the MANILA area. Check the link brother to see some rooms for cheap.
HAD TO START TAKING MY PICS
Started taking photos for Tinder and Colombian cupid. You know what it is gee. Took me like 10 tries to finally get the selfie stick out the photo. I was looking like an idiot until I finally figured out the right angle. Colombian cupid is popping. Hella shorties are responding. I ain’t gonna lie I’m kinda striking out on tinder though. Badoo is kinda popping but not as good as colombian cupid. Major shorties hitting me up.
MY FIRST DATE IS TONIGHT BABY…
My first date was off tinder. 35 year old venezuelan chick with 2 kids who fled her country to find a better life in Colombia. Extra thick gee. I like them extra thick with a phat ass and double D’s. That’s what I like if you got a problem oh well son. Just getting my feet wet nothing serious.
PUMP FAKE: After having dinner she tells me ALL GIRLS IN MEDELLIN ARE WORKING GIRLS. Oh boy here we go. I already paid like $40 total for the taxi and dinner so I’m already kind of committed you feel me. She asks for 150,000 colombian pesos, which is $43 at the current exchange rate. With girls in America asking for $200 that makes $43 sound like a bargain.
DISCLAIMER: Welcome to the reality of third world countries. These girls are poor as hell. The minimum wage in Colombia is like $12 a day for an 8 hour shift. Foreign men are coming into the city for only 1 week at a time. So it’s like the women has to get whatever short term value she can from you. It is what it is. I can’t save the world. It doesn’t really feel all the way like you paying for it because the girl actually does need the money and honestly $43 ain’t nothing to us. Also, the girls are kinda cool when they chill with you they don’t act like sexual robots. I learned a lesson that you need to check upfront if a girl is a working girl. They will hide it and surprise you at the last minute. She was cool though. I just wish she was honest and upfront about it. Lesson learned moving on.
NOW TO MY REAL FIRST DATE…
Met a regular shorty in Medellin from San andres island. She was 20 years old. Nice and thick just the way I like it. I like them thick even if they a little over weight I don’t care. The people from San andres island are colombian citizens, but the island is almost in the middle of nowhere off the coast of Nicaragua. Similar how Hawaii is to America. You can’t even see it on google maps without zooming all the way in. She was cool and spoke good english and going to college. Honestly the people from San Andres Island are actually black. They look like the people from Belize and the Carribean.
We ended going out that weekend and meeting some little homies from Venezuela that you will ready about next. This girl was cool she was a very good person but she wasn’t trying to come over to my house, she wanted to take things nice and slower than I wanted to. No hard feelings. She was girlfriend material but I’m still seeing what is out there. Good positive experience with No smash LOL.
Meet The Little Homies From Venezuela
I was on a second date with my friend from San andres. We were in Parque Lleras While waiting to get some ice cream some venezuelan boys walked up on me and asked me for some money. I gave them a few pesos because all I had was large bills. After thinking about it I was like ARE YOU GUYS HUNGRY? They was like hell yea, so I took them to the hot dog stand and we all loaded up. This is my first time being around poor kids like this so I wanted to help them out.
Took Them To Get Some New Shoes…
The next morning I took the young homies from Venezuela to buy some new shoes because they were wearing some dusty sandals. That’s all they could afford. The one on the right I told him hey homie with all that running around you be doing asking for money them white air force ones are going to get scuffed up hella quick. He said I don’t care I still want them because I AIN’T NEVER HAD A PAIR A FRESH FORCES GEE!! After that we dipped around the corner to get some shirts. The shirts around here run about $3 which is super duper cheap. Good quality.

Parque Lleras Did Not Disappoint…
Parque Lleras is where all the pretty girls are. It is in the El Poblado area where are the tourists live. There are 100 restaurants and about 15 clubs with a bunch of girls. Most of the girls are what we call ‘Civ-Pro’. That means a Civilian Professional. They are not Pro Escorts, but on the weekends they will spend time with you to make some cash to take care of their families. Remember, the girls out here make $12 a day. It’s not frowned upon, this is the way it is in Parque Llerras. Any guy telling you that he was scoring in Lleras for free is lying LOL. Average girls will try to hit you for $60 or $70. The top chicks will try to hit you for $100. Wait until 2am that is what we call discount hour. All the girls will drop the prices because if they don’t then they will go home with no money.
Hooters got some NICEEEE Ones…
I met a bro who is a lawyer an we decided to go out to Lleras. It was my first time so he told me we were gonna hit the good spots. We meet at hooters and GOD DAMN !! Hooters had 3 shorties that I was ready to get active on right there in the restaurant. God Damn those 3 were super bad. My Lawyer bro was like man this is nothing just wait until later. If you go to Medellin hit up the hooters brother!! A couple girls got Ant booties. The ant booty is a skinny girl with a big fake butt that doesn’t match her body. It looks funny but hey they have to compete because it’s a lot of competition in Parque Lleras.
GUSTO GUSTO GUSTO !!
Gusto has the baddest girls in all of Medellin and yes you will be giving them some cash to help out their family. Gusto has the baddest ones you can imagine. All kinds too. They got some super thick ones, some skinny ones that are cute, some ones that will make you question if you ever want to leave Medellin again. Gusto I will never forget you my friend.
MET A STREET GIRL IN LLERAS…
I met this thick shorty at like 2am in Parque Lleras across the street from Gusto. She tried to hit me for 200,000 pesos ($60 usa). I told her I only had 100,000 pesos for her because I had a date the next day for free. She said no at first but I said you can come with me and chill for 100,000 ($30 usa) or go home with nothing since she had a kid to feed with no other options for the night. Remember, girls who work make $12 a day so $30 is still a lot to them.
Try Not To Be Judgemental
She was super cool and was explaining the usual story of being poor and having a kid with a guy who abandoned her. She was a good girl who was just in a burnt situation. But I can’t save the world. We chilled another time and i gave her 150,000 pesos since she was cool. Overall it was a great experience. Try not to judge the economy is kind of bad out here and this is how it goes down. You see the kid in the background that is what the money goes to. The money doesn’t go to Chanel and Gucci bags like in America.
Started To Live The Normal Life
I went to BODYTECH gym and joined. It was about $75 for a month. It’s much cheaper if you get a long term deal but I wasn’t staying that long.
I started trading and working on my youtube channel. It’s more difficult than you think to make videos but I’m learning.
Spent 2 hours on google maps trying to find a decent barbershop. Luckily this barbershop knew how to cut black hair. Got me a fresh fade for only $4 usa.
The VINKE barbershop is in the Manila area of EL POBLADO. It’s right next to the BODYTECH Gym in Manila. You can’t miss it. 2 cool bros that work there.
I started grocery shopping and everything is much cheaper. A soda that cost $2 in the USA cost about 1,500 pesos or 50 cents usa.
A serving a chicken is around 3,500 pesos or a little more. That comes out to about $1 or $1.25 usa. you can buy a can of vegetables for about 50 cents and eat for $2 a meal.
A 5 guys premium burger and fries will cost you around $6 here instead of $14 like in the usa.
A panda express quality meal will run you about $5 here instead of $10 in the usa.
Started Dating Some Normal Girls
I was getting some good action on Colombia Cupid. Keep in mind these girls get 50 messages a day. You will meet with a few and some others will flake. End up going on a few dates. There are some pro girls looking for money, but there are a lot of girls who will enjoy a dinner with a foreigner. Don’t have big expectations when on colombia cupid. There are some cute girls and some average girls.
Most girls will go on a date with you and then come back to the spot to chill. It’s all on you to close the deal, but every girls is different. Some girls are looking for a man, some girls are looking for a sugar daddy. Just go with the flow and see what happens.
These Girls Were Cool…
Met this chick on CC. She was a cool chick. She had 3 kids and was a single mother. Only thing that was kinda burnt was that she told me she was 30 years old but actually she was 35. We went and had a nice dinner and then chilled at my spot. She tried to link with me again but her age was kind of a factor because the other girls I had on deck were a lot younger. She never asked me for money but I gave her 50,000 pesos ($15 usa) anyway because I knew her situation wasn’t that great.
This chick was younger around 20 years old. We went on a dinner and chilled at the spot. She was cool but she always used the word “AMOR”. that is what a lot of the working girls call you, but turns out she wasn’t a pro. She was cool but she was smashing some other dudes on CC as you will find out.
This random guy posts in the Medellin Facebook group that he is looking for a bro to hang out with in Parque Lleras. I responded because I didn’t have any plans either. We started talking about colombian cupid and I sent a pic of me and the shorty. Turns out that he smashed her a few days before, and on top of that he sent some iphone video clips of them smashing on the bed.
I didn’t get offended, it’s just a reminder of the real world. These girls are out here getting smashed by multiple dudes. So just be careful with Colombian Cupid the girl you think is a good girl could be getting passed around. I wasn’t mad just glad I got that reminder.
Donald Trump For The Win…
I was doing some trading in colombia when I was there. The market wasn’t really moving that much. Then one day your boy Donald Trump fired off a tweet about China and some new trade war tarrifs and every single futures contract went down like there was a whale in the boat. Everything tanked the ES NQ and the Dow jones YM futures. I was on the right side of the tweet and ended up with a nice $1,200 bag.
$1,200 pays the rent in colombia and almost everything else if you are living within your means. Paying the rent with one trade is pretty nice my brother.
Met A Cool Chick at Eafit University
This was our first date. Picked her up from work and had dinner at Chef Burger. We had to translate everything on google haha.
This was our second date. We were trying to find a nice spot in Laureles to eat but everything was kinda wack so we settled for Dominoes Pizza.
This is us at a very small breakfast hut type restaurant. You walk up and order an egg sandwich. That sh*t was pretty good bro.
At night after her shift was over we would go and hit up this ice cream milk shake spot. It was so good I gained like 10 pounds off them shakes.
We Hit Up The Communa 13 Tour
Communa 13 is a barrio in Medellin that was really bad in the past with a lot of gun violence and drugs. They turned the Barrio around and there is a tour you can take to learn more about the history. They have some awesome Graffiti portraits that you can use for nice photos. Hit this place up if you ever go to Medellin and make sure to book a tour with a guide who speaks english. I had a spanish guide and didn’t understand sh*t he was saying. Just had to appreciate the art LOL.
Time to say goodbye to Medellin…
Time to go back home and make some paper. Been here 2 months and I’m burnt out. My first mini relationship in bangkok had a very tough goodbye. This time around it wasn’t as hard, but it’s still kinda sucks to leave someone that you like behind. We decided to remain friends and maybe we will see each other again, but we both understand the reality of being so far apart living in 2 different countries.
Medellin was a cool place to live in and I highly recommend it for a short visit. I have mixed feelings about living here long term. After the initial week of hanging in Parque Lleras I found it kind of boring. There is no beach in Medellin, it is sort of a concrete jungle. My next stop will be in Mexico. Stay Tuned.

I It’s well known that you need about $25,000 to have a realistic change to profit in the stock market. In 2019 the CME Group introduced Micro E-mini Futures. The Micro Futures give smaller investors a chance to make $200 per day trading the S&P 500 index with only $5,000 to start.
