Pre-Expat Retiree Research

Good day 😉!

I'm having a difficult time deciding between Cali and Medellin, Columbia and what neighborhoods in each city I should consider. Any information would be very helpful. Thank you!

What are the difficulties you are having deciding?  Both cities can be good.  What are your priorities, likes and dislikes, preferences in climate, etc. etc?  Do you speak good Spanish?

Climate-wise, Medellín has the more moderate temperatures .. though it can get mighty hot in the summer months, i.e. June-August.  Cali, at lower altitude, is hot in summer and hotter than Medellín in the other months.

At the welcome page of, there is a featured article about (1) a comparison of Medellín’s most desirable neighborhoods .. and (2) rent comparisons by sector.
