The areas is residential (Estrato 4), pretty, calm, safe and tourist-friendly, a great chance to get away from the bustle and the traffic jams of Poblado-La Frontera-Envigado, is close to the Metro (Poblado/Aguatala) and perfect if you want some “me-time” during your studies, maybe after a few weeks of Homestay! Mayorca is close to sociable Parque Cristo Rey and has great transport links including the Terminal del Sur bus station and the City airport.
