Medellin Mini Guide

Isn’t it Dangerous to Travel to Medellin?
Not that long ago you’d be thought of as mad for even considering a journey there but the determination of its people to clean up the city has paid off with it now being no more dangerous than many of the world’s more popular cities. There’s plenty to see and do there whether you’re in the city on business or for pleasure and the advice these days is simply to use common sense when you’re out and about.

How do I get to Medellin?
The city is easily accessed from its own airport; Jose Maria Cordova International, which you can fly to from Madrid or alternatively, you can fly to Miami, JFK or Fort Lauderdale Airports in the US and make a connection there. It’s only thirty minutes into town from the airport and you can collect a hire car there if you don’t want to wait until you get into the city.

What is There to See and Do in Medellin?
The city was founded in the early 17th century and has many historic buildings, most of those still standing being ecclesiastic in origin. The city’s cathedral is very impressive, reputedly using a world record 1.1 million bricks in its construction. Pueblita Paisa is also worth a visit. It’s a reconstruction of a traditional Antioquia village on top of Cerro Nutibara and a great way to understand how the people lived before the arrival of the Spanish. The city’s Christmas lights are meant to be the finest in South America so time your trip carefully and be dazzled. Finally, outside the city are the mountains of the Andes, great for exploration!

Not so long ago you might have needed an armoured car to travel around Medellin but these days, any one of the many cars we offer for Medellin car hire is more than enough to get you safely around the streets of Colombia’s second largest city. If you’re going outside of the city and up into the Andes that surround it, then maybe a 4x4 would be a safer option and we have plenty of those too.

You won’t need a small fortune to rent a car in Medellin either for we’ve seen to it that when you enter your details into our real time search engine, the price you’re offered is the best available, chosen from all the special deals and latest offers from the major hire car suppliers. We then make sure that you’re fully covered by our comprehensive insurance policies which include roadside assistance should you need it but we don’t add anything to the cost for doing so, whereas many other Medellin car hire companies do.
