Vancouver to Medellin, and then home from Bogota, Colombia - $468 CAD roundtrip

Medellin and Bogota, Colombia

Aeromexico has dropped the price of their flights from Vancouver to Medellin, Colombia down to $463 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

Aeromexico's flights down to Medellin are pretty fast, with a 4 hour layover in Mexico City.

The problem is, their flights coming home from Medellin have a 13 hour layover in Mexico City.

But if you return home from Bogota instead of Medellin, the flight has a 5 hour layover in Mexico City, and the price is similar.

You need to find your own way from Medellin to Bogota, the flight is not included.



You can also find regular roundtrip flights from Vancouver to Bogota, Colombia for $459 CAD roundtrip including taxes with a 2 hour layover in Mexico City on the way there, and 5 hours on the way home.

And you can also find flights where you fly into Bogota, Colombia and then home from Quito, Ecuador - for $571 CAD roundtrip.


Availability for travel

January, February, March, April, May, June 2018

How to find and book this deal

1. Go to Momondo

2. Change the trip type to 'Multi-City' (not available on the mobile site)

3. Search for a flight like this one:

Vancouver (YVR) to Medellin, Colombia (MDE)
Bogota (BOG), Colombia to Vancouver (YVR)

Try using any dates of the week in January, February, March, April, or May 2018.

I've found that using Wednesday, Friday and Sunday dates has produced some of the cheapest fares ($462 to $468).

Not every date combination will work, but there seems to be quite a few that do.

Here are some examples:

(trips can be longer or shorter, these are just some 2 week examples)

Jan 14 to Jan 28 -- $462
Jan 15 to Jan 29 -- $491
Jan 16 to Jan 30 -- $502
Jan 18 to Feb 1 -- $491
Jan 19 to Feb 2 -- $468
Jan 23 to Feb 6 -- $495
Jan 30 to Feb 13 -- $502

Feb 2 to Feb 16 -- $468
Feb 6 to Feb 20 -- $502
Feb 13 to Feb 27 -- $502
Feb 16 to Mar 2 -- $468
Feb 20 to Mar 6 -- $502
Feb 27 to Mar 13 -- $502

Mar 13 to Mar 27 -- $517
Mar 20 to Apr 3 -- $517
(I've found that March has fewer cheap ones)

Apr 10 to Apr 24 -- $495
Apr 11 to Apr 25 -- $462
Apr 17 to May 1 -- $495
Apr 18 to May 2 -- $462
Apr 25 to May 9 -- $468

May 2 to May 16 -- $462
May 9 to May 23 -- $491
May 16 to May 30 -- $491
May 23 to Jun 6 -- $491
May 30 to Jun 13 -- $462

You can also find flights where you fly into Medellin or Bogota, Colombia and then home from Quito, Ecuador - for $537 to $571 CAD roundtrip



These flights have a 4 hour layover in Mexico City each way.

1. Go to Momondo

2. Change the trip type to 'Multi-City' (not available on the mobile site)

3. Search for a flight like this one:

Vancouver (YVR) to Medellin, Colombia (MDE)
Quito, Ecuador (UIO) to Vancouver (YVR)

Vancouver (YVR) to Bogota, Colombia (BOG)
Quito, Ecuador (UIO) to Vancouver (YVR)

Try using any dates of the week in January, February, first half of March, second half of April, May 2018.

Not every date combination will work, but many do.

You may want to try starting with Thursday to Wednesday date combinations. I've found that these days tend to have flights with the more ideal layover length in Mexico City. See the note below about this.

Here are some examples:

(trips can be longer or shorter, these are just some 2 week examples)

Jan 16 to Jan 30 -- $537
Jan 18 to Jan 31 -- $537
Jan 25 to Feb 7 -- $537
Jan 30 to Feb 13 -- $537

Feb 1 to Feb 13 -- $537
Feb 6 to Feb 20 -- $537
Feb 20 to Mar 6 -- $537
Feb 22 to Mar 7 -- $571

Mar 6 to Mar 20 -- $562

Apr 17 to May 1 -- $537
Apr 24 to May 8 -- $537

May 1 to May 15 -- $537
May 15 to May 29 -- $537
May 29 to Jun 12 -- $571

TIP: Look for the flights with 14-15 hours of travel time on the way there, and 15 hours coming home, like in the screenshot below.

The flights with only 11 hours of travel time on the way there have just a 90 minute layover in Mexico City. MEX is an airport that is notorious for taking a long time to get through.

Once your Momondo search completes, you may see a message that says 'Aeromexico has another 11 similar results'. If you click on that, you may be able to find flights that have the more ideal 14-15 hours of travel time.

    Has anyone tried to book this flight yet? I'm trying to now but am starting to question the third party websites. I did a quick search of FareGeek (website that offers the advertised price) and found some pretty horrible reviews. If anyone has any experience using FareGeek please let me know!

    Hi Mitch, you may want to read this article: Third Party Airfare Booking Sites: The Power Rankings - who to trust, who to avoid - particularly the section under 'Why every booking site has bad reviews'

    You can also find some info on FareGeek in there.

    Hey Chris, has this expired? I can't for the life of me seem to get those prices no matter what dates I try. Same with the Cancun one. Any help would be awesome.. not sure what I'm doing wrong.
