If you have ever tried having something shipped to you here in Colombia, you’ve surely run into something very frustrating, the Colombian Zip Code system. 

Here is a basic rundown of the zip codes in the valley, and we are even giving you a graphic to help with this.

Structure of Medellin Zip Codes

The zip code system in Colombia is numerical and follows a specific structure. Medellin zip codes typically consist of six digits. The first two digits represent the department of Antioquia, to which Medellin belongs. The next two digits signify the specific municipality or district within Medellin. Finally, the last two digits indicate the local post office or delivery zone.

For example, a zip code starting with “05” denotes the department of Antioquia. The next two digits, such as “01,” could represent the central area of Medellin. The final two digits identify the specific post office or zone in that region.
