    Just a lovely mall where everybody of the family will be happy and find something nice. Luxurious mall high on top of a hill.

    I love this mall. It was our first and it's quite big. It was across the street of our hotel so we were there almost every day. It's even nice to just hang out.
    Also a lot of good restaurants for lunch and dinner

    Malls are the places where people shop & eat quite often in Medellin, especially on a Sunday, since many restaurants are closed on Sundays. This mall has great selections of different stores & I’ve never left here without a bag in my hand. Not sure if that’s good or bad 😊

    A large producers market offering opportunities to look at the diversity of the country’s amazing fruits and vegetables products. Beautiful and certainly worth a stroll although you should note this is not a fancy place for tourists, just one where people work. It is however possible to buy small quantities. Coming from the city is ok but the walk from the metro is not through the nicest neighborhood, however although you’ll walk along “strange” people it didn’t look especially unsafe to us by day.

    Not all Unicentros are at the same level. Some are much larger than others. All are like US malls, except maybe cleaner. There are a lot of shops that look like international brands, but I have never seen outside of Colombia: Americanino, etc. Many clearly are positioning themselves to look like US or global brands. The bigger Unicentros have locations where you can sign up for cellular phone service. The 4 biggest ones I have been to are Cali (near the Intercontinental), Pereira (near the massive road closure and detours for the bike race...), Los Molinos (Medellin, Belen district) and the daddy of them all, Envigado (Medellin, Envigado area). The Envigado Unicentro is pretty new, is right near the Envigado Metro station (short walk) and is connected to VIVA! Envigado. Viva is another chain of shopping centers, always associated with an Exito store. Sometimes the Viva centers are modest in size (e.g., Viva! Laureles). Not so, in the case of Viva! Envigado. It is quite large and, combined with the Unicentro, prepare to go home with sore feet. Every Unicentro I have seen has Bank-associated ATMs, clean, free restrooms and a (pay to play) children's amusement zone. Colombians dress up before leaving the house. If you dress like you're in the US and just running out to the store, you will embarrass yourself. Besides, it shows respect and gets you better service and represents your home country more favorably.

    I live in Medellin but in the north end of the Aburra valley but stop in when I am in the area. The mall has convenient parking, is very clean and I enjoy the views of the regional airport from the restaurants.

    There is a Pricemart directly across the street. I like the open feel of the mall and plenty of stores and shops and restaurants to suit just about everyone.

    Stop by if your passing through.

    I am a big fan of crêpes and waffles and have gone to the outlets all over Colombia and I’ve always found them to be consistent in their excellent service, the cleanliness and wonderful presentation of their meals and deserts. However at the premium Plaza crêpes and waffles, for whatever reason, although my partner and I were one of the 1st to sit down and others later arrived, they not only got served before us but also finished their meals before we were even given our drinks.

    I bought this to the attention of the young lady serving us who was very kind but she could not give us a plausible explanation as to why we weren’t being served. Eventually we got our drinks and meals, long after the others had left and when it came to the bill, both my partner and I were charged for extra cheese. I always order the same meal in every crêpes and waffles and there was no more cheese on this plate then all the other meals I’ve had elsewhere. This just added insult to injury as we paid more for this meal, the same meal i always have elsewhere because we had been charged for extra cheese and yet we had to wait about an hour for the meal to be served.

    This was the first time as I indicated to the waitress that I would not leave a tip due the none existent service that was not provided!

    Subsequently, the manager came by and asked what the problem was and she was quite disappointed and surprised to learn that we had not been served while the others around us, all of who came after us, had been served and finished their meals by the time we did in fact get served. I was so exasperated that I did not even mention about being overcharged for the extra cheese.

    The manager, understandably, felt bad for us and provided us with a desert which was a very kind gesture But I would certainly never go back to that crepes and waffles and would not recommend it to anyone else. I don’t know if it was the lack of staff or lack of experience or a combination of both but I would strongly recommend that their standards be dramatically lifted. The manager’s kind gesture in providing the desert was bitter sweet because, in my mind, there was nothing that could undo the damage to that store’s reputation!

    I hope in the future other clients are not exposed to such underservicing and the the service only improves hereon!

    We visited this on our Real City Tour. Literally in one door and out the next. Built in 1920 as the palace of justice, and has been nicely restore to its former grandeur and is now a shopping center, centered around the huge auditorium with stores where the former government offices once were.
    The architecture is stunning, and the stores had just about everything you needed, real or fake.
    TIP: The architecture alone is worth making a trip.

    Over the past 3 plus years, during numerous trips from the United States of America to Medellin my husband and I have purchased more than a dozen pieces of various mediums from Arte Loft Galeria, for our home. Owner, Nora, who speaks both Spanish and English, is always as delightful and helpful as can be while while we shop in her kitschy gallery. She has a keen eye, constantly reinventing her gallery by seeking out new talented artists’— She tends to chose artists whose works convey unique perspectives often utilizing diverse and mixed mediums. Definitely stop in and check out this gem of a gallery!

    One of the best places you’ll find in Medellin. Filled with personality and loving people, Casa 3B holds the true spirit of what it means to be Colombian.
