Why MEDELLIN is the place to be?

An internship in Medellin offers you a great possibility to learn and explore and develop yourself professionally as well as personally. In 2012 Medellin was chosen as the most innovative city in the world by the Wall Street Journal and City group. Doing an internship in Medellin is a great addition to your curriculum vitae because it shows you are entrepreneurial, independent and above all you will improve your Spanish.

Innovative City

Medellín won the Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize 2016, for its continues efforts in furthering innovation in urban solutions and sustainable urban development. the city is praised for having the best public transport system in Latin America.

Friendly people

The Paisa people have a Spanish background, are entrepreneurial and hard-working. Paisas speak softly and quickly, smile easily and love parties. They are proud of their city, and work hard to keep it clean.

Rich culture

The culture in Medellín is strongly linked to the Paisa culture, famous for their Spanish accent, cuisine, and hospitality. Today, Medellín has many cultural attractions and several National Monuments of Colombia.

Leisure and Nightlife

The city is becoming more cosmopolitan, and has a variety of international restaurants. Medellín has many cultural attractions including around 40 museums, 21 public parks, 28 theaters, and several public libraries. The weekend nightlife, in discos, pubs, parks, and certain dedicated streets, is traditionally called rumba.

Enjoyable climate

Medellin is nicknamed the city of eternal spring because of its “mild” climate. Medellin has a constant temperature of about 27 degrees Celsius all year round.


Thanks to a string of innovative mayors who have integrated the poorest hillside neighborhoods into the city center in the valley below, Medellín is now considered safer than many US and European cities.

“Working with Paisa Internship was. a great experience for me. When I approached them, they directly started to search an internship for me. Within less than two weeks they already had one. The next day we directly had a Skype conversation together with the company to make clear what were everybody’s expectations of the internship. Everything was arranged really quick and in a professional way. Within three weeks I could start with my internship and everything went excellent. All parties were very satisfied with the results and I would for sure recommend Paisa Internship” read more…
