As Colombia has grown less violent in recent years, it has become a stop on more travelers' itineraries.

And these travelers are increasingly venturing beyond Bogota and Cartagena into previously off-limits cities like Medellin. 

For intrepid adventurers curious to explore Medellin and nearby mountain towns, GlobalPost has created a Pinterest guide.

We'll take you from Medellin's Botero Plaza and most popular tourist district to a coffee plantation in the heart of Colombian coffee country.

We'll take you on a virtual walk through historic Santa Fe de Antioquia, where Indian rickshaws carry visitors across century-old cobblestone streets. And we'll show you where to get an authentic Philly cheese steak and better-than-Olive Garden lasagna while you're traveling.
