ATMs at the airport on arrival?

Quick question for those who have been to Medellin. Should I get some Colombian Pesos before I leave for my trip or can I wait till I get to Medellin airport? Are there ATMs in the airport?

There is also a foreign exchange trader right outside customs. However, you will get a better rate from the ATMs, especially if your card does not exclude a foreign ATM fee or a currency exchange fee.

Before I moved to points South of the US border Bank America delivered the foreign currency to my door and for a very modest fee. All you need is enough for the first day or two. The ATM's at your destination will be different even if they have an English option. There could be a long line. I landed with the local currency already in my pocket and breezed past the possible frustrations of a different system.
