    Love your website that is so much better than other blogs about Colombia and I appreciate your efforts to keep everything on the site up to date.

  2. Thanks for your website that has been so helpful to me and I am sure has helped many other expats. Are you planning to update your guide to the flower festival for 2018? I would like to know the calendar for the events this year.

    • Hi Kim, thanks. And, yes we will be publishing an updated guide to the flower festival for 2018.

    This has got to be the best source of information about living in Medellin. I am trying to find more information on internet services particularly with regard to internet speeds. Which service do you recommend and what are the monthly costs? I am sure most are packaged with phone and streaming for TV. Another area I hope to learn more about is public transportation. Is there a card that you can recharge to use on both the metro and buses instead of paying for each fare? Thank so much Jeff.

    • Hi Kelly, thanks.

      We haven’t yet covered Internet and triple-play providers on this site. In Medellín, it is possible to get up to 100 Mbps Internet speed from Claro. And up to 50 Mbps speed is available from Tigo-UNE. Most buildings in Medellín will have service from at least one of these two providers. And Both Claro and Tigo-UNE in Medellín provide triple-play Internet/TV/phone services.

      I recommend Claro. In my first apartment I had service from Tigo-UNE that wasn’t very reliable in my experience. Unfortunately Claro wasn’t available in that apartment building so I was stuck with it until I moved and switched to Claro that was more reliable.

      We currently have Claro’s Triple-Play service with 10 Mbps Internet, HD TV service with several hundred channels (over 30 in English) for two TVs and phone service. And I am very happy with the service as it is very reliable. The cost is about 185,000 pesos per month in an Estrato 4 neighborhood. Claro typically has sign up promotions where the cost will be lower for the first year.

      I see you found our article about the Medellín Metro system – https://medellinguru.com/metro/
