The Monterrey is only a block away from the Poblado METRO Station. Adjoining the Shopping Center is the multi story upscale Monterrey Office Tower featuring professional and commercial businesses offering all kinds of services. The Tower is unique in that most floors also include parking spaces. This saves time for both tenants and clients, plus it frees up the elevators. This photo, taken from the 7th.floor garage, includes the Medellin River and the METRO tracks.

An Internet service provider (ISP) offers shoppers 15 minutes of free access. Their special offer was 200 Kbs wide band, full time telephone IP connection for Pesos 75.000 a month (about $33 u.s.) including taxes. ISP competition, both cable and telephone, is intense in Medellin. Prices are lower and higher than this example. Prices are reduced, and features increased, on a frequent basis.

NOTE: The Monterrey Reception Desk was staffed by two friendly and helpful ladies….sorry Spanish only. You can visit their website at: www.monterrey.com.co. Sorry, Spanish only. When you click on the Translate This Page option nothing happens as the Monterrey pages are in frames, which are neither user friendly, or friendly to the critically important Search Engines. As a result, this otherwise fine Home Page, which was costly to create, receives few visitors. What a shame!

MedellinInfo bought a new PC from one of the Monterrey stores (they have been in business for 7 years at this location. I was told that this was their first sale to a foreign person) and can report that the technician does speak English!

There are thousands of people in Medellin who speak good English, but few of them work at jobs where their language skill can be used to promote their employers, to improve this great cities economy, or its image as an international city. What a shame!
