We offer Medellin Taxi Services. These are private and are SUV’s.
Local taxis are relatively inexpensive and can be commonly found in most parts of Medellin. The minimum fare for a taxi is 4,600 COP (about 2.50 USD). The meter should always be on and will start at about 2,700 COP. The only exception to the meter possibly not running is on the fixed cost taxi departing from the airport. Tipping is not required but most people round up the fare to the nearest 1,000 COP.
They are tiny and very basic. It is difficult to get 2-3 people in them for a comfortable ride.
When you enter or depart from a taxi, please don’t slam the door or you risk the taxi driver glaring at you. The doors on the small cars are deceptively light. You can sit in the front seat or the back – there is no difference. If you have large bags, the driver will usually get out and help you with them. Avoid giving the driver 20,000 COP or 50,000 COP notes. Each taxi company has its own number to call, so you may want to ask which local company best serves your area.
We have private SUV’s that are clean and reliable. they are much more comfortable and ready to take you and your group to tours, dinners or site seeing trips.
