We provide housing, workspace, and an unforgettable experience filled with regular dinner parties, peer-to-peer workshops, happy hours, and excursions. From the moment you arrive, you will experience Medellin like a local.
Unsettled: Medellin Highlights
We’ve designed this experience as a perfect balance between staying productive and adventuring. In between coworking sessions, we’ll explore coffee farms and local creative spaces, share our skills and expertise in peer-to-peer workshops, meet local graffiti artists, connect to the social innovation ecosystem in Medellin, take weekend trips to the Caribbean coast, Cartagena, and the more remote Pacific Coast, go paragliding, horseback riding, rafting, and dance salsa until the sun comes up. You’ll receive a full-time membership at our coworking space, a local SIM card, and have internet in your apartment, so don’t worry; you can live unsettled ands still stay productive. That’s the point.
Full-time access to a local coworking space, with an incredible rooftop patio. But, many Unsettlers like working from the city’s countless coffee shops.
Go paragliding, explore in Colombia’s stunning coastline, or spend the weekend with us horseback riding through the Andes and wandering through a traditional mountain town.
Lunch & learns. Peer-to-peer workshops. Family-style dinners. Themed conversations & discussions. Curated events & local mixers.
Yoga. The perfect climate. Tasting endless fruits you’ve never heard of, cafe hopping, and finding the perfect balance.
Late-night salsa sessions, Spanish lessons, Communa 13 graffiti tours, coffee tasting, and exploring a rich history of transformation and innovation.
I’d planned on spending a month abroad independently… Then I found Unsettled. When you consider how much you usually pay for living, travel, entertainment, an efficient work environment, local expertise, and networking and learning opportunities, Unsettled is an incredible bargain. It was exactly what I needed.
The more I design my ‘ideal life’, the more I realize that community is what underpins everything. It’s the equivalent of a ‘home’ when you’re on the road and away from family and friends. Unsettled is this on-the-road community whether it’s in-person, virtual or in the memories.
Unsettled means taking time away from what’s comfortable and known. It means shaking up your routine so you have a chance to consider which parts are working for you, and where you’d like to change. It comes back to learning – there’s always more to learn about yourself and ways in which you can grow.
