I asked a hotel limo driver who is a local if Medellín is now safe enough to walk around. He told me it's safe overall wherever I go. However, he added, "Personally I'm not a big fan of downtown." So here I am in El Cento—the central downtown and commercial/business district of Medellín. There are some attractive modern architectures in this area, but this is not a place I like to stay for a long time. It feels a bit sketchy.
