Montería's Los Garzones Airport is served by a handful of the biggest names in South American airlines, including:

  • ADA
  • Avianca
  • EasyFly
  • LATAM Colombia

Unfortunately, none of these carriers offer direct flights to Canada. To reach Los Garzones Airport, we recommend that Canadian travellers fly into Bogotá's El Dorado International Airport (BOG) or Cartagena's Rafael Núñez International Airport (CTG) first. Besides providing frequent departures to Montería, these Colombian airports also offer non-stop trips from Canada. Bogotá's airport services Air Canada flights from Toronto. Meanwhile, the airport in Cartagena hosts Air Transat's flights from Montréal and Toronto, and Air Canada once again flies in from Toronto.


Filled with shops, banks, and dining outlets, Los Garzones Airport is fully equipped to receive international travellers. On-site, you'll find restaurants for every budget and plenty of stores to browse. There are also practical amenities like ATMs for three major banks in Colombia: Bancolombia, Bank of Bogotá, and Servibanca. For VIP services, Montería's airport offers a luxurious airport lounge. For a reasonable entrance fee, the lounge's guests can partake in unlimited snacks and refreshments in a comfortable, modern environment.

The City

Despite its prime location within driving distance of Colombia's coastline and its gorgeous beaches, Montería isn't considered a tourism hotspot. Rather, it's a quiet, friendly city of about 454,000 residents, which is known for its summery weather and diverse culture. Due to a low crime rate by national averages, Montería is an enjoyable, safe place to explore. Canadian visitors can enjoy a lively shopping district, delicious traditional cuisine, and elegant cathedrals and local architecture.
