    Considera hacer un video de los cafes de Bogotá…que piensa?

  9. Johan A. J. A. says:

    Esto no es nuevo. Un extranjero enseñándole a un local cosas que ni sabia que existían. Me sigo quedando con el amarillismo de las noticias, que le vamos a ser!

  10. Johan A. J. A. says:

    Como seria ver a Sam en otra vida donde por cosas de la vida no hubiese tenido Educación, preparación, apoyo emocional – sicológico etc… y que en ves de ser Australiano fuese Colombiano y que en ves de ser grande con un cuerpo atlético fuese pequeño y gordito y que en ves de ojos verdes ojos cafés color miel di ta. Yo me lo imagino y es que no si su opinión sobre Colombía y sobre sus habitantes fuese la misma y si su capacidad para relacionarse con los pringaos de más poder adquisitivo fuese la misma* No se pero creo que la palabra u opinión de este hombre sobre todo me parece un poco sesgada.

  11. New Whips says:

    Love your vids bro. Im a young 20 y.o black american and I do plan to move to medellin. All of your vids are very informative.

  12. World Wide Images says:

    Sam, you forgot to mention how dangerous this neighborhood it really is. Car theft is rampant, sicarios killing innocent citizens, cell phone theft is rampant, pre pagos all over. Please mention this info on your videos….

  13. Andres Uribe says:

    hey Sam, where did you rent the bicycle?

  14. sly nzekwe says:

    I love laureles. This was a perfect picture of the area. Great job man!

  16. Leonell Barco says:

    Buen vídeo SAM… para cuando Barranquilla?

  17. Retro Moto says:

    Sam- Love the Vid! Laureles has always been my favorite because of it's quiet tree lined streets. I have not been there in years, but on my short list to check out fore retirement. The cyclo-via in Medellin is also an added benefit to get around…are e-bikes common or Legal?

  18. Max says:

    el mejor youtuber 👏

  19. Juan Zuluaga says:

    Actually I think Laureles is way better than El poblado. Bc it is a calmer neighborhood, in Laureles the life is not completly full by the hustle, bustle and noise unlike El Poblado, which is a place where the life is a little more faster. Plus personally steep places were not made for me.

  20. opproducciones says:

    Cuando voy a Medellín prefiero Laureles

  21. Expat 4 Life says:

    Thanks for the info Sam

  22. Philly Dom says:

    I'm in Love with Laureles Medeillin….. Thanks for the video Sam…… Keep them coming……

  23. Sweet y Salado says:

    I love Laureles and try to go there at least once or twice when we visit. However, we prefer to live in the hills of Poblado/Envigado for several reasons, VIEWS! Fresher air, great pool to swim after a hot day and there is also less traffic noise where we live. Laureles is too close to Centro for my liking, there is literally no views and most buildings lack a pool, which is a must in my book. It does have great bars and restaurants though.

  24. Raymi Rodriguez says:

    lived there for 5 months, it was a very awesome experience! Looking fwd to go back for a 2nd season. Cool video, thanks! I did not know about the sports complexes and skatepark!

  25. juan camilo Franco says:

    En medellin hay muchos lugares para quedarte no solo El poblado tambien lo esta sabaneta, envigado y laureles, america y ahora llano grande pero este ultimo ya es rionegro y rionegro tambien o el oriente de Antioquia

  26. Alberto Hernández says:

    Eres un extraordinario y adorable ser humano, se te puede ver en tu cara y espero estés siempre en Colombia. Gente como tú son los que hacen grande una nación. Xxx

  27. QisQue says:

    @Sam-lifeafar I wish I came across this video last month I book a apartment already for couple weeks from now. But yours looks much better I would've definitely booked with your company

  28. Bryan Ocampo Garcia says:

    I think you follow Casey neistat videos

  29. Virginia Lopera says:

    Sectores muy distintos porque Laureles es más plano y tiene muchos parques y El Poblado aunque tiene su parte plana, tiene muchos sectores altos que se necesita auto en partes donde no pasa transporte público y aunque Unidades muy completas al estar en lomas no están tan cerca, pequeñas tiendas, restaurantes y lugares que si tiene Laureles. El Poblado si tiene mucho turista en su parte plana, muchos hoteles económicos y cerca al Metro al Exito es distinto a Laureles. También cerca de Laureles hay otros Barrios agradables como Conquistadores, La Mota, Bolivariana, El Estadio etc.

  30. Greg Rainey says:

    We love Laureles. My wife is Paisa (Copacabana) and we live in the states but own a home close to nutibarra y jardín and travel there every 3-4 months. Great area that is extremely walkable/bicycle friendly. To me it is worlds better than El Poblado.

  31. Rebecca Chen says:

    How do you find holding a camera/phone on the streets in the daytime vs. the night time?

  32. Daniel y Ruby says:

    The airport ride to Medellin is too long….very mountainous too..

  33. Onofre L Herrera says:

    Sam, I am going to Cali next summer to visit my friend but they tell me not to eat vendor food, Is this true? well CDC said so. Please help? Thank you!

  34. iLLVi3W says:

    i just wonder, what does it take to work with you on real state?

  35. Aris Miranda Reyes says:

    Laureles es mejor mil veces que el poblado y San lucas

  36. mike smith says:

    There are healthy options. Its called the grocery store in Colombia.

  37. mike smith says:

    And if you eat like your friend with that plate it will cost you $14 USD. Too much for Medellin. Consider you pay a hotel the same price in Laureles. Most I pay is $14-16 USD. Thats a pretty good hotel too in good area. Go to Exitos grocery nearby to pick up food and drinks for cheap.

  38. Stephen Ho says:

    Wow, Laureles looks pretty nice! I’m staying there this time when I go back instead of El Poblado. Glad I made that choice.

  39. pimchaos says:

    If you look up safety of laureles vs poblado, poblado has about half of the amount of homocides reported between the two that to me is the most important factor

  40. RAUL ACEVEDO says:

    thanks sam por tus comentarios sobre laureles

  41. sjmunoz says:

    How many colombian cities have you visited ?

  42. StanleySimmons REACTIONS says:

    Where are the rich areas to live in Medellin? This still looks out dated and old

  43. Expat 4 Life says:

    Thanks Sam

  44. Nico Stubler says:

    hey Sam – where did you rent the bike?
    thanks 🙂

  46. Music Of Sounds says:

    People need to know that Medellin is fucking dangerous. I lived there 8 months. Make a video in El Cntro at night, it´s not far away from laureles, I lived on 66 street (I think) the street with the Exito store, near the train station. Laureles is probably one of the safest areas, the drug dealers and, prostitute and robbers usually go to El Pobablado since that´s were the money is. I´ve seen a lot of shit in Medellin, trust me.It´s a damn miracle that I am still alive. You need to understand that most people were knives and can stab you in your gut. My girlfriend was raped by a taxidriver, my friend witnessed a dude got stabbed to death outside the stripbar, I ve been locked up in hotels, got police escort when people followed me with knives, they broke into my hotel room at calle 70 last time, where you are, I can go on and on.

  48. Juan Carlos Armengol Rodríguez says:

    yo he estado dos veces en medellin una en laureles y otra en el poblado y aunque fuí en la peor epoca a laureles me gustó mas que el poblado que fuí ahora.

  49. Rogier de vaan says:

    I live since 2010 in Laureles. Laureles is becoming like Poblado. There's so much traffic and pollution now.
