NEIGHBORHOOD The "Edificio San-Jorge" is located in the neighborhood of Laureles, which is much greener and much better communicated than the now over-crowded and over-rated 'Poblado'. It is surrounded by a patchwork of orange roofs and green trees laid out at the foot of the Medellin's mountains.
Metro stations: Your Res. SAN JORGE is located at equal distance between 2 train stops, "El Estadio" and "La Floresta", each at 5-10 minutes walk only.
Shopping: includes a popular supermarket "D 1" and a farmers' Market called "La America", both only 2 blocks away, plus other useful shops like beauty-salon, copy-shop, hardware...
Dining out: foodies may enjoy a large quantity of typical Colombian, or international cuisines, especially around "La Calle Nutibara", which is at a short walk into the adjacent neighborhood of "Laureles" (so named for the old laurel trees that line up the streets)
Night life: Medellin is known for its many bars and dance-clubs for every taste; lots of them can be found along the very popular "Calle 70" which is no further than a 5 minutes cab drive ( by the way, taxis here are quick and inexpensive!)
Fitness: All kinds of sport activities can safely be enjoyed in the neighborhood, like for example jogging around the "Velodromo", swimming in the very clean, and never too cold, waters of "Complejo Olympico del Estadio", or also, riding a bicycle in "La Ciclovia"...
