I ve been living in Quito for the past couple of years. Time for a change. I qualify for the pensionado visa for Colombia so can live there legally.
Been using Numbeo.com to look at cost of living in Colombia compared to Ecuador. The coastal zone near Cartagena or Sata Marta is attractive. If anyone here can shed light on what one might find in areas near Baranquilla or Cienaga, Palomino or Riohacha, in the countryside around these places the information would be deeply appreciated. I remember being in Taganga 3 years ago (didnt care for it at all too many drunks too many tourists and too much noise) and being cautioned not to walk by myself to the Tayrona park several Km away on the coast because of robbers....... I dont have enough knowledge of the general Caribbean area to know if someone wanting to live in a rural setting is going to be subject to this or not......
