Medellin Tunel del Oriente

Motorcycles Prohibited

  • Medellin has recently opened up the "Tunel del Oriente" which connects Medellin with the rapidly growing “Oriente” (east of Medellin) region.

  • Please note that although Google Maps displays this as a functioning road, motorcycles are not allowed to use the tunnel. 

  • Police love to hang out there and get bribes from people who make the mistake of trying to enter the tunnel. 

Sonsón to Salamina

Remember, Google Maps isn't 100% accurate. I've had people try to drive from Sonson to Salamina with Google Maps and it took them down some sort of walking path or horse trail.


You can see the correct route on the right and also click here for the correct route from Sonson To Salamina

If you are driving from Sonson to Salamina please be sure to ask the people to show you the road to Salamina or Aguadas.


Amazingly, some of the people don't know what Salamina is even though it's just a couple of towns over. If you ask people to show you the road to Aguadas they should be able to show you.


Remember that the road to Salamina is a big unpaved road that cars and big trucks drive down. It's not a walking path or horse trail.

Gaia GPS shows the correct route out of town.

  • You are more than welcome to store your bags at our office.

Motorcycles don't need to pay tolls in Colombia. You’ll see a dedicated motorcycle lane on the far right of the toll station on highways, that allows you to pass without paying.
