The Medellin metro system is fantastic. Clean, safe, trains every 5 minutes or less. Very cheap and easy to use. It also links with the cable systems. A credit to the city and the country.

Depends on which airport. Cordoba is in Rio Negro to the east and it's 45 minutes by car. Herrera on the other hand is in town but just handles small passenger flights. If Cordoba, take a taxi or the small bus (9,000... More
