There are major cities in the United States that dont have a mass transit system (Houston). Do not get me wrong its inexpensive and people use it which makes the ride very tight and crowded. If you travel to Medillen catch the train.

One of the cleanest metros I've ever seen. You can get anywhere in Medellin in less than 30 mins with their metro.

Medellin has done an excellent job with the public transportation system, so far the best I've experienced in Latin America. Navigating and buying fares is simple and quick and the cable cars give you beautiful views of the city.

Gets you to El Centro fast but be ready to be ready to have people breathing on you as it can get very crowded.

The metro is clean and safe and a great way to get around. You simply buy your ticket at the booth and you are given a card which you tap at the turnstile. If you want to take the metro cable cars, there are transfer...More

Depends on which airport. Cordoba is in Rio Negro to the east and it's 45 minutes by car. Herrera on the other hand is in town but just handles small passenger flights. If Cordoba, take a taxi or the small bus (9,000... More
