This week in
Although you are still advised to use use an ATM for cash in Medellin, perhaps your Medellin vacation fund is in cash or you just prefer to exchange travelers checks, dollars, Euros, Pounds or whatever currency.
Most Medellin Hotels can exchange money for you (although not usually at the best rates) as well as official cambios at the airport. Many banks also offer exchange services and the city is literally dotted with Government approved cambios. There is usually a fee of .8 to 1.5% or more, depending on the world exchange rate posted that day. Some Cambios have a morning and afternoon exchange rate postings depending on the mid day currency market changes. Do not expect to get market exchange rates. They will use the Colombian TRM exchange rate.
If you are staying in the Poblado area of Medellin, there are several cambios close by including one in Oviedo Mall.
