Medellin Guru is the only blog in Colombia that has a policy of not letting articles on our website become out-of-date.

Some of our articles have been updated multiple times, as things change constantly in Colombia. In the past 36 weeks we updated a total of 246 articles. A benefit of subscribing to our newsletter is finding out what things are changing in Colombia.

So, each week in our newsletter we include two to five current Colombia and Venezuela news articles we believe are of interest to our readers.
