I'm admittedly quite excited about my move later this year to MDE. The only thing about which I'm NOT excited is the addition of a second connection being required for my monthly run north to the states. From SJO, I can get to DFW with one stop in Houston. Same with most other destinations in the southwest/midwest. I can also get to the northeast with one connection at EWR, or none if I'm going to NYC. From MDE I'm going to have to connect at BOG (a nightmare until the construction is finished) or PTY using Copa or Avianca before boarding UA metal. Then the connection at IAH or EWR. And it's not cheap. Medellin was voted the World's Most Innovative City by the Wall Street Journal this year. The growth is stunning, as are the views of the mountains, the first world atmosphere, the local attractions, the beautiful women, the food, etc. No wonder tourism is rapidly rising. It's also a city with tons of industry, attracting a lot of business travel, and more every year. I'll endure the extra connection to live here (I'm here preparing for the move now), and I'll enjoy the extra miles/segments after the fact, but life would be a lot easier if you would just look at the numbers and make the obvious choice. MDE is home to almost 4,000,000 people and growing. It's time.
