Interaction with guests
Our apartment is located one floor below El 401, so you can have as much or as little interaction as you want. Yoly is a paisa – as the people in Medellin call themselves – Colombian. As the restaurateur of Ambrosia Café, she is gone for much of the day and night. El 401 guests who want to eat at the cafe – an eight-or-so-minute walk — will receive a 10 percent discount. Jody is a Canadian-born travel junkie who hasn’t lived in the land of ice and snow for 25 years. She is a writer, editor, and teacher who works from her home office and is generally around.

Map
About the neighbourhood
Location, location, location

El 401 is on Maracaibo Street about half a block from Girardot. The major Avenida Oriental is two blocks west and the action-packed Avenida La Playa is two blocks to the south.

Eats and Drinks
In this regard, you are spoiled for choice – as shown on the map. There is a bar just to the left of the door of the apartment building and an empanada café to the right. There are also three larger restaurants – two of which offer outdoor seating — on the block before you get to the corners. And there are three more on the other side of the street.

We will provide you with photocopies of the cards of restaurants and services you might want/need. Vegetarians and vegans are well served in this area.
Getting around
Transportation
A 20-minute stroll will take you to all the public transport options. The metro – as the trains are known — are fast, inexpensive and hook up with the cable cars, buses, and electric stairs. The trambia — a new train service that takes up the whole street – is about a 10-minute walk.

Taxis – small yellow cars that buzz the street like swarms of hornets –have fares that start at about $1.50 USD and you can get across the city to suburbs like El Poblado, Laureles, and Envigado for $10 to $20.
Access
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Jose Maria Cordoba: 45.0 km
There is a bus from the airport that is cheap and takes you to downtown Medellin. Then it is a $2 to $3 taxi ride to the apartment.

A taxi directly from the airport will cost about $30. A private taxi with an English driver can also be arranged.
