Away from center
A great alternative for those looking for a more affordable and less touristic experience in Medellin, Sabaneta is located to the south of Envigado but remains very accessible to central Medellin by metro. It is a small district, but Parque Sabaneta offers all sorts of amenities including restaurants, bars and cafes. The area is very much up-and-coming and the city expands from the main Medellin area. This district certainly feels more authentic, and the increasing number of real estate developments in the town are making it a favorite among expats and long-term visitors, even as it remains a largely working-class community. Lagos de La Doctora, Santa Ana and the areas surrounding Parque Sabaneta are the best areas to live here.
