Holiday shoppers take over downtown Medellín

In downtown Medellín, Christmas is in full swing and shoppers are scouting the stores for the best deals. Customers can choose where to shop depending on the kind of atmosphere they prefer.

For a quiet, easygoing experience, Junín and Camino Real may be preferable as those areas are more organized, street vendors aren’t competing with stores and crowds are smaller.

El Hueco, Berrío Park and San Antonio, however, are a different story as competition between formal and informal businesses is rampant and crowds are significantly larger. Street vendors will not be asked to leave, “there are just too many”, but they are being asked to maintain some order.
