fREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
If you don't do anything else in Medellin, do this. The most enjoyable experience I've had so far. Seb and his mom were the best, and the food? THE BEST. Their home, the puppy and kitties, the views, it was all just perfect. Beyond glad I did this, worth every penny. Don't miss this one....
Seb and his mother opened their gorgeous home up to us for a delicious lunch and chill time. House overlooks a pretty lake and includes a patio with two pool tables. The grounds are beautiful and a few of us took a blanket out to the lawn and relaxed there after lunch. This was an unexpectedly lovely time! Another Remote told me it was her favorite experience of the month, so I took a chance and was glad I did!
I love!!!! First, Seb & his mother are so 😊 cute. That should be enough reason to go but if it isn't-the environment, the cazuela and the intimacy should definitely be great points to indulge in this experience. If you want to spend time with a local Colombian family and enjoy great food and hospitality, this is it! It's also quite nice that it's about a 30-45 minute ride away from the city, so just being there is relaxing and a nice little getaway. Nomad Tip: If you have to do a little work, you can bring your laptop and still have a good time.
