The Botero's collection: Excellent. Location: Less so. A great collection of some 10-15 excellent bronzes, however in a slightly risky part of Downtown Medellin so be prepared to be hassled whilst there by street sellers and beggars alike. Other than the Botero's the square is...More

This place was lovely to see, the sculptures are very good (Botero is talented in my view) but the only downside is the people around, a lot of homeless people asking for money or trying to sell you things so just be careful of your...More

For the cost of getting here, you can absorb a number of impressive Botero statues scattered throughout the plaza. Well worth a visit! Just take precaution for pick pockets and petty thieves.

I have never seen such an amazing collection of fat people (and fat animals, too). Botero's people are a joy. Great photos.

Plaza Botero is a must visit, not because of the art but to get a more accurate and interesting view of Medellin and it's people. I went with the free tour and that added the context that makes this plaza interesting.

Plaza Botero has plenty of Botero sculptures all over the plaza. It's also great for people watching both tourists and locals. Lots of fruit and juice stands all over the place , you do have to be aware with street peddlers.

The reality and the past are together in this park. The Maestro Botero have made the most sutil expressions of art for all publics. I recommend this place. Only take 10 mins.

What does it cost for WiFi access for a week. I have a reservation for Dec 20-27th this year? Since I am traveling solo, what is the best location to request for a room? Does anyone there speak English on staff?

Few people speak English in Medellin, or Colombia for that matter. One of the telecomms, UNE, sells USB wireless keys to access the Internet. When I checked last year, the key cost COP 50,000 and access was COP60,000/month.
