airport is about 45 minutes away from the city. You drive through mountains,
the scenery is beautiful. The airport structure is somewhat like Miami´s
International Airport (basically two levels in an arch) but much smaller.
Arriving passengers leave the airport through the lower level, lots
of taxis and minibuses waiting for passengers to take them to the city.
No illegal taxis allowed. Fare: about 12 dollars (around 32 thousand
pesos). There are no exchange houses at the airport, only in the city,
most taxi drivers won´t accept dollars. Try to buy Colombian pesos
at the airport in the US.

Medellin taxies charge by the METER. (Make sure the meter is registering
the minimum charge when you get into the cab.).
