Could someone please give me the straight dope on how/where/when to pay this? I understand I have to have a stamp in my passport before approaching the airline ticket counter but i'm fuzzy on the details since my lady handled this for me last time while I waited in line (and it wasn't CTG so she does not know either).

Do you mean when leaving Colombia? You have to pay it before checking in. (If memory serves me)

You do need a stamp to reduce the exit tax, you may prefer to pay the extra otherwise just ask where to go. The airport is tiny and they will be used to gringos requiring the stamp.

In Bog and Baq, you just go to a "Tax Exemption Counter" where you get a stamp in the passport and a small paper certifying the exemption. Then you queue up to check-in. If you are with someone, you can do both things simultaneously if the check-in queue is long. You just give the paper and show the passport to the airline and that's it with the tax. I am guessing Ctg is the same.

Okay... I´m leaving from Bogota to Miami. I have a two hour layover in Medellin. The flight from BOG to MDE is domestic. Do I pay the tax at BOG or at MDE?
And how much is the stamp, and how much is the tax?

Thanks in advance.
