Need your answers now? The best swimming pool in Medellin is the rooftop pool at The Marquee!
I moved to Medellin from LA, so the heat wasn’t anything new to me. However, that’s not to say that it didn’t get to me quickly!
And, if you find that the warm weather in Medellin has got you sweating up a storm yourself, then I can sympathize. After all, life in the tropics can be quite a transition for those who aren’t used to it!
One way that I’ve learned to enjoy the dry season in Medellin is by hitting up the swimming pool. So, if you want the best swimming pool in town, I’ve got your back.
Here are some of the top swimming pools in the city for cooling off on a hot day.
If you just want the classic pool experience like you had back when you were a kid, then the Centro Recreativo Villa Elena is the place to go.
This classic swimming pool features two large pools where you can swim laps or just splash around.
There are plenty of beach umbrellas with loungers for you to hang out on when you’re not in the water. You can also order drinks and snacks from the poolside snack shack if you need a quick pick-me-up.
If you’re a serious swimmer that’s wanting to get fit while in Medellin, there really is no better place to go than the Atanasio Girardot Sports Complex.
With this pool, the name really does say it all.
The sports complex is home to an Olympic size swimming pool. There, you can practice backstroke, sidestroke, and whatever other strokes suit your fancy.
You can also check out the diving pool, and test your limits by diving into the deep end. In total, you’ll find eight different swimming pools at the complex so you definitely won’t get bored.
You’ll find this swimming pool tantalizingly close to the Laureles Estadio. That puts it right near Casacol’s Moderatto property, as well as a few other local hotels. If you want to relax and unwind after a long day of swimming laps, be sure to head over to the Celestino Spa for a sports massage!
