Some groups of indigenous people such as the Caribs lived in a state of permanent war, but others had less bellicose attitudes. Indigenous allies were crucial to conquest, as well as to creating and maintaining empire. Spain was the only European power that could not establish factories in Africa to purchase slaves and therefore the Spanish empire relied on the asiento system, awarding merchants mostly from Portugal , France , England and the Dutch Empire the license to trade enslaved people to their overseas territories. In the Viceroyalty of New Granada was originally created, and then it was temporarily removed, to finally be reestablished in This Viceroyalty included some other provinces of northwestern South America which had previously been under the jurisdiction of the Viceroyalties of New Spain or Peru and correspond mainly to today’s Venezuela, Ecuador and Panama. Since the beginning of the periods of conquest and colonization, there were several rebel movements against Spanish rule, but most were either crushed or remained too weak to change the overall situation.

ABOUT MEDELLIN. Medellin, the capital of the Colombian state of Antioquia and Colombia’s second largest city, is said to be one of the most beautiful cities in South is plenty to do and see in the city itself and the scenic surroundings. The home of parks, palms, orchids, and tropical birds, the city lies cradled in the scenic Aburrrá valley, which is bisected by the Medellin River.
The countryside is in open revolt, and the army is powerless to suppress it. In Colombian history and culture, the killings are known as La Violencia The Violence, —58 ; most of the people killed were peasants and laborers in rural Colombia. The Liberal and the Conservative parties agreed to alternate in the exercise of government power by presenting a joint National Front candidate to each election and restricting the participation of other political movements.
The pact was ratified as a constitutional amendment by a national plebiscite on 1 December and was supported by the Church as well as Colombia’s business leaders. The initial power-sharing agreement was effective until ; nonetheless, with modifications, the Liberal—Conservative bipartisan system lasted until The plan promoted industrial farming that would produce great yields of agricultural and animal products for worldwide exportation, while the Colombian government would provide subsidies to large-scale private farms.
The AED policy came at the expense of the small-scale family farms that only yielded food supplies for local consumption. Based on a legalistic interpretation of what constituted “efficient use” of the land, thousands of peasants were forcefully evicted from their farms and migrated to the cities, where they became part of the industrial labor pool. In , the dispossession of farmland had produced 40, landless families and by their numbers amounted to , throughout Colombia.
Marquetalia Republic Communists were active throughout rural and urban Colombia in the period immediately following World War I. The PCC began establishing “peasant leagues” in rural areas and “popular fronts” in urban areas, calling for improved living and working conditions, education, and rights for the working class. These groups began networking together to present a defensive front against the state-supported violence of large landholders.
The Lleras government attempted unsuccessfully to attack the communities to drive out the guerrillas, due to fears that “a Cuban-style revolutionary situation might develop”. After the failed attacks, several army outposts were set up in the area.

We now look at survey results to see which are the most popular neighborhoods for expats living in the city. El Poblado is clearly the most popular neighborhood in the city for visitors. It has more hotels than other neighborhoods in the city. It is also where about 80 percent of the furnished apartments in the city are located. El Poblado is also the most popular neighborhood in the city for expats when they decide to live in the city.
This is not surprising to me. Two-thirds of expats living in the city have decided to rent instead of buy. This overall rent vs.
The Metro guide on this website is out-of-date and incomplete. Some readers also asked for an update. As a result I wrote this article. Traveling on the Metro is generally very safe. However be careful of pickpockets during rush hour or any other time the metro cars are crammed full of people. The worst time to use the metro is during the evening rush hour on Monday to Friday.
John, I wanted to thank you for what you do. I went on your Cartagena tour last year and even though I did not find that special someone I had such a fantastic time I decided to give it another chance and go to Medellin. I could not be happier that I did. I did not think it could have been possible that Medellin could have been better then Cartagena and was blown away.
Your staff Lorena and her team was fantastic. My translator Soraya was amazing. The only criticism that I have, is that at the social there were too many women and not enough time to meet them all. The city and the country was unbelievable and the women very approachable and friendly. The location was excellent, Even though I chose to visit some of the neighboring cities and towns everything we needed was within walking distance from the hotel.
Although your company solved one problem in my life you ended up giving me another. I did not meet one fantastic woman I met two. I am currently trying to decide which one I want to see again and am making plans to go back in December. Something tells me you may have another picture on your wall of success stories in the near future. As a typical New Yorker it takes a lot to humble me.

In this post, I go over my experience: Halloween in Medellin is fun. I first wrote this post about my dating experience in Medellin back in April of Places frequented by tourists in Medellin are more saturated with foreigners than before. I am aware of the underworld of sex tourism and prostitution in Colombia and I know that there are many strip clubs and brothels in Medellin; however, strippers and pros are not the types of girls that I date, nor is it something I would like to promote; therefore, I will not be referring to that in this post.
Also, this is a narrative of my own experiences. It is not meant to be a guide or advice for other guys. Lastly, I do not intend to degrade or belittle women. Medellin just happens to have many of them. My situation is a little different than most foreigners here in Colombia. At first glance, Medellin women do not perceive me as a foreigner due to the way I look.
It is an immediate sense of curiosity that some Colombian women have upon meeting a foreigner. I do not get that immediate attention here in Medellin.

Medellin Guru is an insider guide with experienced expat tips on things to do, places to go, where to stay for visitors and expats living in Medellín, Colombia.
Roads are pot holed and the drivers are maniacs as they are throughout Colombia, but especially so in Cali. The hot, rather muggy city has a few interesting old buildings and churches, but nothing of any real note. The only real reason to visit Cali is as a launch pad for travel to other destinations in Southern Colombia. That, plus the nightlife, which is the best in all of Colombia.
Stag nights haven’t come to Cali just yet at least not like in Dublin, Prague, Riga etc. Things to do in Cali I can’t make a list here as there isn’t really much to do, other than experience Colombia. It is a great place to experience Colombian city life, and meet Colombians. It’s a rather chaotic city recovering from the crazy drug baron years of the 80’s. While Medellin has since surged forward to be one of Latin America’s most exemplary modern cities, Cali has lingered behind mainly due to bad governance.
Things to do in Cali? Go out salsa dancing, or eat in some fine restaurants some of the best in Colombia. Cali is all about lifestyle – and you wouldn’t bother taking your granny on holiday here. Lads backpacking around Colombia – you’d be mad not to visit.
