Colombian banks make it difficult to wire money from USA

Bancolombia

Renting in Colombia does not need to be difficult. I moved to a small town near Rionegro 5 years ago, spoke no Spanish but I know how to negotiate. The apt owner ask for a co signer and as I knew no one in this country I simply told the owner I will pay 6 months rent in advance and on the 5th month pay monthly so they always were a month ahead. They liked the idea and told their friends so it has worked for others who are strangers when they arrive.

Good to know this works, thanks.  I had thought of attempting to make the same sort of deal.
