How to get to and from the Medellin international airport (MDE) by taxi cab, shuttle van or bus

There are 2 airports in Medellin, the Enrique Olaya Herrera Airport (EOH), and the José María Córdova International Airport, (MDE). EOH is mainly used for regional and domestic flights and is really easy to get to: you can take any taxi.

The MDE international airport is a lot further away from the city center and more expensive to get to. It is about an hour from Medellin. Most travelers arriving or departing on international flights will be utilizing this airport. The MDE airport is also referred to as the Rio Negro airport due to it being in the municipality of Rio Negro. All methods of getting to the airport listed below can simply be done in reverse if you are arriving and trying to get into Medellin.

1.Yellow Taxi

This is the method most travelers will use. It is the easiest and most convenient way. There is no need to negotiate as the rates are fixed. The most current rate will be listed on a placard that is attached to the front windshield in the upper right corner. As of Februar 2018, the price is $70,000 COP. If you have an early morning flight or are arriving late, this may be your only way.

2: Shared taxi

Most of the locals get to the airport by colectivo or the shared white taxis. First make your way to the San Diego Mall (Centro Comercial San Diego). Then locate the white taxis which will either be waiting for passengers in the Texaco gas station parking lot or behind the Falabella building along Carrera 42B (Las Palmas).

They generally leave every 30 minutes or as soon as enough people are ready to go. The cost is $70,000 COP split between however many people are in the taxi. If you are the first to arrive, you can claim the front seat. Otherwise, you'll get crammed into the back with 2 other people.

3: Shuttle bus

You can catch the shuttle bus next to the San Diego Mall, exactly where you catch the collectivo taxis in method 2. There is a bus stop near the Texaco gas station where the shuttle bus will pull up. Just keep an eye out for it and wave it down when it approaches. No need to go all the way downtown anymore (unless you're already down there). Instead take the metro to the Exposiciones stop and then walk about 4 blocks to San Diego. Just ask anyone how to get to the mall if you get lost. Make sure you have plenty of time to spare though since you will have to walk, take the metro, find Hotel Nutibara and then hop on the shuttle bus. The cost is ca. 11.000 COP.

Other possibility is to go to the nearest metro station. The metro ticket will cost you ca. $2,000 COP. Then hop on the metro heading in the Niquia direction. Get off at the Parque Berrio station. As soon as you exit the station, look to your left for Hotel Nutibara, which is a huge building with a Nutibara sign on top. Go behind the building and locate the shuttle buses at Carrera 50A #53-13. They are mini-buses that are white with green trim run by Combuses, SA. The sign on the front of the bus should read "Aeropuerto JMC". The tickets cost $10,000 COP and it takes about an hour to get to the airport. Be careful at night as the area tends to get a little sketchy. During the day you should be fi-ne. As you can see on their business card below, when going to the airport the shuttle runs from 3:30 am - 9:30 pm (SCHEDULE HAS BEEN EXTENDED. THE BUSINESS CARD BELOW LISTS THE OLD SCHEDULE). Coming back from the airport, it runs from 6am - 12pm (NEW TIMES) and stops at the San Diego mall.
