At Home On Heaven’s Mountain
Jan. 27, 2012, Medellin, Colombia: Monticello is a private mountainside development community less than an hour outside Medellin, Colombia.
Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,
Carlos Nieto is a Colombian American who returned home to his native Medellin about a year ago.
Carlo's family has a finca, a country estate, less than an hour outside downtown Medellin. Any Medellin family with the money to afford it would have a finca outside the city. There are 26 national holidays in Colombia. Paisas (as the people of Medellin are known) like to enjoy them at their country houses.
Carlo's family's finca is called Monticello (that is, Heaven's Mountain). It's north of Medellin, just past the town of Copacabana. Now that Carlos is back home, he's had an idea.
