9 Reasons to Join the Medellin Guru Events & Discussion Forum

Join the Medellin Guru Events & Discussion Forum on Facebook with over 3,400 members. We look at 9 reasons to join this popular Medellín Facebook group. Medellin Guru launched the Medellin Guru Events & Discussion Forum on Facebook in July 2018.

Many readers of the Medellin Guru website asked that we start having Medellin Guru meetups and also provide a discussion forum for readers.

This Facebook group is intended for the readers and followers of Medellin Guru and other expats and readers interested in sharing experiences and ideas about living in Medellín and visiting Medellín and Colombia.

Also, before the coronavirus pandemic we held the largest monthly Medellin Guru meetups in Medellín where you had the opportunity to interact with the Medellin Guru writers and other expats in Medellín. Our first official Medellin Guru meetup was in August 2018 and our last one was in February 2020 with over 200 attendees. We plan to resume this meetups in the near future.

We also welcome discussions in this Medellin Guru Facebook group. And you will be able to ask questions via this group to the Medellin Guru writers and other experienced expats living in Medellín.

      In my case the only drawback during the previous meetups was that I was unable to converse with anybody except the person immediately next to me. Some of the venues must operate on the assumption that if they pump up the volume then passersby will be drawn to the place on the assumption that that’s where all the action is. D’oh!

    2. Richard March 13, 2021

      Congrats, look forward to you restarting your Medellin Guru meetup events.

    3. Whats with expats flying to Colombia. Just had Oct flight cancelled.

    4. Thinking about moving to Medellin in 3 years
      I am Puerto Rican born an raised in ny
      Although it is scary to think of living some where out of the US i like going to Colombia
      Just looking at how to meet people and not get bored since i have worked all my life. Looking at
      All website of Americans living in Colombia

    5. Henry Collins August 3, 2018

      This is a great idea to reunite all the people that wish to experience Colombia. They can get valuable feedback and information about the cities, places they can visit and what to expect in terms of culture.

      • Hi Henry, thanks. Many Medellin Guru readers asked that we start a discussion forum and also host Medellin Guru meetup events. So, we now have both.

    6. Lawrence R Rose July 28, 2018

      Great! BTW did you see “My Colombia” half hour on CNN? Some good points… it didn’t mention you know who or his product. Bad… makes Colombia look like a bunch of accordion players and cowboys. We love our accordion players and Llaneros, but there was not word one on Medellin. Bogota and Cartagena were mentioned by name, nothing more, and Armenia. Dunno the point of ignoring our great cities. .

    7. Thanks, I look forward to the first Medellin Guru meet up and plan to go. Any idea when this will be?

    8. Jeff Excellent very good initiative ,to improve interact and share experiences. have my assistance when the forums are done
