Travel Tips for Medellin
One thing to always consider when visiting Medellin, is that there is always something exciting happening, so plan ahead to see what type of festivals and street parties there are going on and you can be sure whenever you decide to go you will have a fabulous time as the weather is like spring throughout the whole year. It is advisable to pre-book any guided or private tours as you will save yourself a lot of money.
Costs vary depending on where you go, just be aware of the menu prices before you sit down, some places you can dine like a king for a few dollars and other places you would need to be a king to afford to dine! The same goes for alcohol prices, they can be as cheap at 1US$ for a beer in one place and in another 7US$ for the same beer. The tour guides are very helpful and friendly and you can haggle for a good price.
The currency in Colombia is the Colombian Peso; you can take it out at the various ATMs dotted around. Just take enough cash out daily that you will require. Haggling is ok to a certain extent but does not go below 15% as its deemed rude. Private tours are best-booked way in advance, and you will save money. Always check out prices in restaurants before going in as some are very cheap and some are extortionate!
