Coliving in Medellin

Jan-Apr 2019  |  Jun-Aug 2019

Coworking & Coliving in Medellin

We chose Medellin as our first long-term coliving space, and for the first time ever, the Tribe can choose to stay for up to 3 months!

January 2019, marks our third time back to the ‘city of eternal spring’ – one of South America’s top hubs for innovation, and of course, the remote work/digital nomad movement. We’ll be coming home to live in our favorite area of Medellin, El Poblado, surrounded by cozy cafés with amazing coffee, lively salsa bars and most of the best restaurants of Medellin…


South America's Nomad Hotspot

Colombia! A place of magical surrealism, stunning natural beauty, and… coffee! The best start to discovering Latin America.

The ‘City of Eternal Spring’

Medellin earned its tagline for a reason; it just always seems to be spring. Many still know it best for its narco history, but Medellin is South America’s most spectacular turn-around story – not only in terms of safety, but also in terms of innovation and entrepreneurship.

Half City, Half Jungle

You can stand in the middle of El Poblado, surrounded by cafés and restaurants, but turn a corner, and you suddenly find yourself in the jungle. It’s a rare juxtaposition; a buzzing, high-rise city with veins of wild nature running through it.

The Land of Coffee

Colombia treats the world to some of the finest coffee. Last year, the Tribe visited plantations, and learned how Colombians do coffee; from picking the sweet berry, to removing the beans, washing, drying, roasting, and finally grinding them for that perfect cup of coffee.

World's Tallest Palm Trees

That would be the ‘Wax’ Palm Trees of the Valle de Cocora. It’s one of our favorite trips in all of South America. The view is breathtaking – something from Jurassic Park, just so surreal that it doesn’t seem like our planet… at least not in this era.

El Peñol de Guatapé

Just a day-trip out from Medellin, past rolling hills covered in palm trees and coffee plantations, you’ll find a peculiar rock, the icon of Antioquia. We hiked up and the view you see is one of the most iconic landscapes of Colombia (yes, that is our title photo on this page).

Colonial Cartagena

Cartagena is an old colonial town on the Caribbean coast of Colombia. It’s a wonderful, culture-packed place to get lost in and roam the cobblestone streets lined with colorful houses and flower-packed balconies. The music literally follows your every step.

Colombia's Caribbean Islands

Yes, Colombia even has Caribbean islands. This is another one of the Tribe’s favorite weekend trips – renting a boat and going from island to island, stopping by for some BBQ seafood lunch prepared by locals, and jumping in the water to cool off!


Coliving Space: Our Home in Medellin

Our homes are a collection of spacious and comfortable apartments, in the best possible location; a quiet area just a few steps from all the action. You'll share your new home with inspiring people consisting of entrepreneurs, freelancers, remote workers.


What Does the Tribe Say?

We asked a few of our most long-term Tribers to tell us about Medellín and Colombia. Lauren has traveled with WiFi Tribe for 11 chapters over the last 3 years, and Jess has done 3 of her 6 chapters in Medellín!

Fast WiFi

Internet speeds in our apartments are faster than in most places in the city, but the Colombian internet providers are known to have stability issues every now and then. We always have MiFi devices with mobile data as backups in all homes to make sure that we can keep working productively if there are any stability issues.
