Welcome to colombia.
Your journey begins now...


Medellín is a city of historic transformations. An urban oasis surrounded by one of the most diverse and ecologically rich countries on earth, over the past decade, it has become a shining light of urban innovation and entrepreneurship. Yet it has always been world-renown for its art and design, outdoor festivals, stunning countryside, and of course, salsa.  

Unsettled is curating a group of 25 creatives, entrepreneurs, and freelancers to join us in working from Medellín each month this winter (...though, it's always spring in Medellín.)

Who is this for?

We've intentionally design this experience as a balance between work and taking advantage of the vibrant quality of life in Medellin, the thriving culture of creativity and entrepreneurship, and the limitless opportunities for personal discovery and growth.

We bring together the intellectually curious who seek to replace routine with adventure, and embrace the unknown one month at a time. You will share this experience of a lifetime alongside a curated group of peers who hold a wealth of knowledge far deeper than just their careers, and join a growing community of Unsettled alum spread out over 40 countries around the world. 

This retreat is ideal for:

  • location independent freelancers
  • creatives, entrepreneurs and business owners 
  • anyone looking for a structured sabbatical  
  • people going through transitions, and thinking through new ideas and next steps.

The Experience

This Unsettled month is your month. This experience is designed to offer you an intentional break from your routine, and the space to find inspiration, build new relationships, and grow new ideas, and immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, food and culture of Medellín. 

We'll explore coffee farms and local creative spaces, connect to the social innovation ecosystem in Medellin, take a 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.

    What Past Participants Have Said:

    To say that my month with Unsettled in Medellin was fun would understate the profound impact that this month has had on me. Between the new environment, the great experiences, continuing my work with a fresh perspective, and mostly importantly, the beautiful people who were with me on this journey, this last month is unquestionably an unforgettable one.... I’m not the only weirdo who can’t find fulfillment in the mundane, in the rote routine of life. I got to hear about other people’s journeys, successes, and failures, and all of gave me first hand exposure to lifestyles very different than my own. It also heightened all of my passions and helped me redefine my own priorities.... Thank you Colombia, thank you Unsettled, and thank all of you who shared this special moment in life. - Eugene Leventhal, Co-founder, eduDAO

    In the past year, we’ve circled the world once with nothing but a carry-on. Out of all of the amazing experiences we’ve had, Unsettled in Medellin ranks at the top. What will we miss the most? The wisdom that blossoms from community, and our new life-long friends.
