MEDELLÍN – COLOMBIA
Medellin is known as the ever spring city. With orchids and several other pretty flowers flourishing all over the year, the city of Medellin is Colombia’s second largest city and said to be one of the most beautiful cities in all of South America. There is plenty to do and see in this wonderful and vibrant city in Colombia.
The metropolitan area of Medellín is settled within the Aburrá Valley at an elevation of 1,538 meters and is bisected by the Medellin River which flows northward.
Because Medellin is located at 5,000 ft above sea level, its climate is not as hot as other cities located at the same latitude near the equator. And due to its altitude above sea level as well as a privileged location in the Andes Range, Medellin’s weather is more characteristic of a humid subtropical climate rather than that of a tropical climate.
The city’s average annual temperature is 22ºC (72ºF) and because of its proximity to the equator, its temperature is constant year round with minimal temperature variations. Temperatures range from 15ºC (52ºF) to 30ºC (86ºF).
The VIII SSAGI will be held at the Intercontinental Hotel Medellin.
The InterContinental Medellin overlooks the entire city from its lush location in “El Poblado”. Medellin is known as the city of “Eternal Spring” because of its location in a valley surrounded by mountains, but our best features are “Los Paisas”, its warm and friendly people. Our recently renovated hotel features a variety of restaurants, wish gardens, a spa and swimming pool. InterContinental Medellin offers the city’s premier accommodations with 294 guestrooms and suites plus the latest technology including high speed Internet access in all guest rooms, and Wi-Fi in public areas. For extra comfort, we offer two floors of Club InterContinental rooms, which provide special privileges such as private check-in and check-out, Club Lounge, happy hour, and private breakfast. We’re a short drive from the “Museo de Antioquia”, which houses the sculptures of the world-renowned artist, Fernando Botero. Medellin is a top destination for both leisure and business travellers.
