Currently living in Quito. Considering a move to Santa Marta- I visited there a couple of years ago and liked the city. In looking at numbeo.com , that website lists the cost of a 1br apartment in the city center as, $283 a month. I am assuming this is not the price of a vacation rental found on mercado libre but an apartment where a local might live. Any information about whether this numbeo figure is close or is fantasy world be deeply appreciated.
