After making a large deposit, I was allowed to be moved from the ambulance to private Las Vegas Clinica in Medellin. Even with the untrained eye, it was easy to tell from the x-ray that surgery would be required to stabilize my fractured kneecap. Scheduled for the following day, and now complete. I have a large refund ($2000+) coming back to me in COP when I go for post-op appointment. We'll be heading back to the States as soon as I can arrange a flight, but I need to know how a non-citizen can cash a check in Colombia. Is there a preferred method or any tips I should be aware of?
