I went with a large group from the U.S. as well as coworker's from Medellin. The plaza was quite overwhelming with people trying to sell small toys and souvenirs that it was hard to enjoy fully. The sculptures themselves are beautiful, but there are too...More

Plaza Botero is a great display of the art of Fernando Botero, as a sculptor.It is right opposite the Museo of Antioquia, it is very popular and it is of course free to visit, to enjoy and to take photographs.

Few people speak English in Medellin, or Colombia for that matter. One of the telecomms, UNE, sells USB wireless keys to access the Internet. When I checked last year, the key cost COP 50,000 and access was COP60,000/month.
