It’s time for a GIRLS TRIP!

For 7 days/6 nights, we’re headed to Medellin! Medellin is the perfect balance between authentic culture with amenities that make you feel at home. 

The trip’s themes is Culture, Connections, and (Self)Care. 

Culture: We are going to understand Medellin’s dark past with narcos and learn how the people who were in the middle of the conflict are thriving today. We’re also going to explore the Afro-Colombian history and influence in Medellin that’s not talked about much. Of course, there will be time to eat authentic food, dance salsa, and see a soccer game (Colombia’s soccer games are an experience). 

Connections: Making friends as an adult can be hard! One of the reasons why YUP SHE TRAVELS exists is to be an outlet for women to not only travel but make new connections. We encourage solo travelers to come because you might arrive alone, but you won’t leave without making some new friends. 

(Self)Care: One of Medellin’s best-kept secrets is the quality and affordable spa, beauty, and medical treatments. While the days will be filled with many activities, there will be time to relax and unwind. In the evening, treat yourself to in-room massages or get your hair braided. You and your new friends could also spend time at a spa, get your nails done, a facial, get your teeth cleaned, or even get lab tests out the way. 

We’ll facilitate whatever you need because YOU DESERVE! 

NOTE: Colombia no longer requires a vaccine for entry. Non-vaccinated travelers must submit a negative PCR COVID test 72 hours before the entrance.
