      Yo tambien…Glad you liked it.

  • Hmmm I wonder what you did in Cusco, Peru to get kicked out lol.

      See, what had happened was…

  • Great post man! Colombian cities are particularly tough to beat for value. Low cost of living without having to sacrifice much in terms of quality of life.

      Thanks, glad you enjoyed it! My thoughts on Colombia exactly. Basing up in any major Colombian city for up to six months a year isn’t a bad plan.

  • Awesome list, spent sometime down south last year and had a blast. I spent a month in Playa Del Carmen and it feels like a second home! Still keen to check out Colombia!

    • NomadicJake

      Glad you enjoyed it. Playa is definitely on my list to check out for a longer stay, as there doesn’t seem to be a place to get beach life for that cheap elsewhere.

      You have to check out Colombia, though! It’s a great country for travelers.

    Great list, very informative. I am hesitating between Medellin and Bogota, for a 3-month visit to test the ground. If I decide to relocate later, which of the two cities will have more job opportunities? I know Medellin beats Bogota for the weather. Thanks for your response.
    Warm greetings from southern California.

      Thanks! First off, you do NOT want to look for work in Medellin of Bogota. Unless you are fluent in Spanish and expat into a professional job that you already had in the States, that is not a good situation. You’ll be earning in Pesos, which is not what you want.

      You’re better off generating money online.

      As for which city is better, that depends on what you want. Medellin has a super high quality of life, but Bogota has better nightlife.

      If you have 3 months, I’d highly recommend spending 6 weeks in each city. Then you can decide.
