What kind of rental car should I get for Medellin?
Medellin knows how to dazzle. You could hang out for a good while here and still not see it all. To experience as much as possible in this energetic metropolis, you’ll need a rental car. Keep in mind that driving in the city usually goes hand in hand with tight streets and even tighter parking spots. Don’t stress though, because a compact or an economy car will make this a lot easier to navigate. If you’re in the mood to venture out of the city and take in the dunes that Medellin is well known for, you may prefer something with more power. A mid-size or full-size SUV will suit your needs.

On the other hand, if you’re just after a car to get you around town as efficiently as possible, you’re better off going with a no-frills compact vehicle (or something else that won’t burn a hole in your pocket).
