A delightful upmarket boutique hotel in in a tranquil garden oasis in a smart Medellin neighbourhood.

Patio del Mundo is a charming boutique hotel tucked away in woodland gardens just a few minutes' walk from El Poblado, where you’ll find plenty of top quality restaurants, boutiques and bars.

It’s set in two renovated villas, and each classically-furnished room is subtly decorated to reflect the traditional décor of a clutch of contrasting places across the globe, including France, Africa, Mexico and Colombia.

The accent is on relaxation: there's a Jacuzzi; yoga, beauty and spa treatments can be arranged; you can swing in a hammock on the terrace and you can take breakfast on the patio, surrounded by tropical foliage. Indeed, with orchids and mango trees on display, you'll hardly believe you are on the edge of a huge city.

What our clients say

  • Highlight: The coffee country. The Colombian people.

    CB, St. albans
  • A trip with JLA is a trip with the local experts. They can respond quickly to challenges such as FCO advice not to visit an area and know the local people who can make the holiday really memorable. One other comment about Colombia - the people we encountered, of all ages, in the streets, shops, hotels etc were friendly, welcoming and the most polite I have met anywhere in the world!

    HR, Brentford
  • Enjoyed every aspect of our trip to Colombia. Fourteen years ago when we first visited the country we felt slightly on edge due to security situation. This time we experienced a very different feeling as we travelled around. Everyone we met seemed eager to show their country in a positive light and we sensed a population very proud of what their nation has to offer.

    JE, Sunbury On Thames
  • it was all very good For me, Colombia stands out as No.1 (I hoped it would be, even before I set off, and it was)

    FD, Sandwich
  • It was a great trip, a nice balance of activity and free time and we felt we saw several different sides of Colombia. 

    MJ, E14
  • Very hard to say which was the most memorable: flour and shaving cream fights in San Agustin on New Year's Eve; stunning views of the Magdalena, both in the South and the North (including the ferry crossing and river boat tour in Mompox);

Our expert's view

Hannah Waterhouse
Hannah Waterhouse - Travel Expert

Hannah had an early introduction to Latin America when her family moved to Ecuador and she returned to study in Buenos Aires for a year before backpacking across the continent.

The friendly welcome you receive at this hotel is matched by the spacious comfy rooms and delicious breakfast served on the plant-filled patio. I really liked the fact this this hotel is safe walking distance to so many great restaurants in the neighbourhood.
