Medellin Airport Taxi

You can get to downtown Medellin from the airport within 45 minutes depending on the traffic.

Medellin Airport taxis are coloured either white or yellow. While the white ones are airport taxis, the yellow ones are local taxis.

It is recommended to take the white ones (Colectivos), since they are larger and more economic too. They are shared taxis, so you’ll share the ride with other people who also want to get to downtown or get back to the airport – It is the most common way of local transportation.
