I have found that Medellin women, as in most parts of the world, love compliments and like it when a guy can make them laugh.

This has proven to be essential for me when picking up women in Medellin. Socially, women are a little different than the southern California women I was used to picking up.

Medellin nightclubs are for dancing, so it’s very easy to go up to a woman in a noisy disco, put out your hand, gesture for her to take it, and start dancing.

I do this often, and many times I will dance one or two songs without even saying a word.

I am actually Colombian, my family is Colombian, and more importantly (aside from my height, 6’2″) I look Colombian.

I have lived my entire life, barring the past 5 years of course, in Southern California.

I am aware of the underworld of sex tourism in Colombia and I am aware that there are many strip clubs, and brothels in Medellin.

Strippers and hookers are not the type of girls that I date, so I will not be referring to that in this post. My situation is a little different than most foreigners here in Colombia.

Places frequented by tourists in Medellin are more saturated with foreigners than before.

Hot Medellin girls are not the sole reason for this rise in tourism to “The City of Eternal Spring”, but it is definitely up there.

Most of my close friends here in Medellin are foreigners and I have seen girls break their neck checking them out as we walk down the street.
