The city of Medellin, Colombia, is known as the “city of eternal spring.” Colombia is right next door to Ecuador and enjoys the same type of geographic diversity. So you’d expect it to enjoy a similarly prefect climate…and you won’t be disappointed.
The city of Medellin, in fact, is known as the “city of eternal spring” and also as the “city of flowers” for the year-long growing season that encourages a glorious abundance of roses, orchids, chrysanthemums, and dozens of other varietals.
At an elevation of about 5,000 feet above sea level and latitude of just 6.2 degrees north of the equator, Medellin enjoys slightly warmer temperatures than most of Ecuador’s popular expat communities. The average daytime high temperature is 81 degrees F. The average nighttime low is 62 degrees F. As in Ecuador, there are two seasons (wet/winter and dry/summer) and October is the month when you can expect the most rainfall… slightly less than 9 inches.
You’ll find a similarly agreeable climate elsewhere in the Andes of Colombia, including the stunning agriculturally rich Coffee Triangle region.
