The statues here are so cool. I would recommend getting a tour guide if you don't speak spanish so they can explain the stories. It is well worth the few dollars it costs :)

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.
