Favorite City Of Springtime And Flowers
Feb. 25, 2014, Medellin, Colombia: The little-known neighborhood of Laureles offers a top budget lifestyle and retirement choice in Medellin, Colombia.
Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,
The waitress set down our frothing cappuccinos, one of which was actually a Cappuccino Irlandés (that is, laced with Irish whiskey). Then two made-to-order crepes arrived at the table. The shady, open-air cafe was half-full with people who'd stopped for the late-afternoon coffee hour that folks in this part of the world manage to squeeze in between lunch and dinner every day.
From our corner, we could look up and down the shady boulevard at the other cafes and restaurants in the neighborhood, also filling up during this traditional afternoon Colombian break time.
I've written many times that the El Poblado sector of Medellín, Colombia, is the best area of this city. That's true, but El Poblado is not the best choice for everyone. Medellín offers a number of equally desirable and, importantly, less expensive areas that are attracting more and more attention—including the neighborhood of Laureles.
