    Cash in Colombia

    I disagree with Luvr. I would never use a money exchange house. Use your debit card in Colombia. Mine is free. No ATM charge. Even with a 3 or 4 percent ATM charge it is the best way to get cash. And safe and easy.

You get a better rate at ATM's, but transaction fees take away that advantage. When I used the exchange stores, I found that Inter Dolar near Parque Lleras in Poblado usually had the best rates.
    You might try "World Remit". I believe this is a British company and you can send currency to yourself in Colombia. The rates seem quite decent compared to other services. I use my Charles Schwab card to make withdrawals when I am in Colombia and this company refunds any service charge fees along with ensuring a fair (I. E. Current exchange rate). But they may not have British branches.

    I have found many airbnb apartments that allow guests, but many don't. https://www.apartmentinternational.c...tions/medellin has many short-term rental apartments, and almost all are guest friendly. They are professional apartment managers.
    Thanks for the advice.

    Not bothered about paying a small fee withdrawing money every few days just don't want to pay a fee everytime I use a taxi.

    Never knew you could use cash with Uber, I'll have to read up on it.

    Finally going to get a condo in El Poblado, apart from Airbnb are there any other good rental sites? Most of the Airbnb ones are none guest friendly.

    The Davivienda ATM at CC Santa Fe had a 2 million limit last time I used it, with no fees. Banco Pichincha had a 1 million limit, but you can make multiple withdrawals on the same transaction. Also no fees. However, I think there are only 2 locations in Medellin and they don't work with all cards. One is located on Avenida Poblado south of CC Santa Fe, across the street from the DHL building.

    Trip in July.

    Hello guys,

    I want to thank everyone for their contribution. This site has been extremely helpful in planning my upcoming trip to Medellin. I have a few question, thanks in advance for you assistance.

    1. Where to change currency? Once we land, should we do it at the airport or is there a better option?

    2. Rides from the airport? Anyone know a reliable driver or better yet chica that does pickups?

    3. Cell service? Whats the most reliable service (voice & Data) to go with and can it be purchased at the airport?

    4. I land around 2 pm where the best place to check out once I settle in?

    Thanks guys!

    Look at you tube videos of the hike and destination. I looked into a trip 3-4 years ago. The buildings were not made of stone and the lost city looks like a bunch of golf greens. I believe there are choices ranging from shorter to longer than 4 days. I love history and nature, but I decided to pass.
