Juan Camilo Villegas and Amelia Medellin ColombiaWe couldn’t have experienced this real estate tour without the help of Juan Camilo Villegas, who graciously showed us these properties.

Finding homeowners willing to let us film their homes for YouTube isn’t easy, and Juan’s expertise and organization made our tour a success.

Please note that we took this tour in January 2023, so these specific properties might not be available anymore, or the prices may have changed (especially with the currency fluctuations). However, Juan can definitely help you find other amazing homes in Medellín.

Hola todos! Welcome to my author bio page! Let's see. Where to begin... I grew up in the country on a lake outside a small Kansas farm town. As soon as I could, I got the hell outta there! Since then, I've lived and/or worked in Kansas City, Washington D.C., Denver, San Francisco, and Ecuador. I started and sold a dotcom, wrote a book about it, started a YouTube channel, and now I write a lot. Amelia and I have embraced the Unconventional Life and we want to help you do it, too!
