From Our Editor

Eight years ago, the primary challenge for tourists in Medellin was transportation to and from the airport, due to a single, landslide-prone road requiring a three-hour advance departure. Significant improvements have been made since then, including the addition of a tunnel to the existing Las Palmas road. Although there were private buses available from San Diego CC to the airport, costing 14,000COP, this option was often confusing and inconvenient for travelers.

However, a recent change has further enhanced airport connectivity. The Medellin Metro has introduced green Combuses, which can be paid for using the Metro’s Civica card. This development offers significant convenience, eliminating the need for cash and simplifying the process of locating and boarding the correct bus. These Combuses, easily identifiable and marked “Aeropuerto,” are available at the Exposiciones metro station.

  1. ¿Dónde se encuentra el combus rumbo aeropuerto- Exposiciones? Supongo que se cobra el mismo, 14k, desde José María hacia Exposiciones. Se puede cargar la cívica en el aeropuerto o al entrar en el bus? Hay taxis esperando la llegada de los buses para los viajeros con equipaje, y en dónde?
    Muchas gracias
