RE: Medellin almost impossible for foreigners
If you're having trouble pulling girls or even making friends in South America, the first thing I'd advise is work on your Spanish. Spanish skill is extremely important if you want to bang anything resembling a quality girl in Latin America. I can't tell you how many times I've used my standard cocky English opener on a SA chick, then her eyes light up when I suddenly switch over to Spanish. Understanding and being able to intelligently navigate their culture is extremely important to people from Latin America (guys and girls alike), and having some language competence shows that you've put real effort into that in a way that really can't be faked.

As for those upper and upper-middle class girls, it's absolutely true that your Gringo status will mean less and less as you ascend the social ladder, to the point that it may even be detrimental when you're dealing with upper-crust chicks with no shortage of wealthy domestic suitors. I think the best way to counteract this is to pretend you live there. You have a centrally located apartment, right?

We don't have a pedestal. All we got is a cot in the back.

I have said on here before that I don't find Colombia easy at all. Or at least half as easy as others claim.

I found my American status (being from California no less) to be barely an advantage if at all. Not sure if it was because I was going after higher end girls or what. Hell, I feel I get better "exotic value" in Manhattan.

The interesting thing is of all the Colombia reports I have read, 99% of them talk about online pipelining. Or some other reports mention a lot of "shoring".

I can't recall a single story of a guy landing in Colombia cold and ripping the place from pillar to post at night.

Not once.

If you go to Colombia completely cold, stay there for two weeks or less, and only do night game, you may very well struggle or come up empty. If you have language skills, social skills, dress well, are in shape, and approach during the day, Medellin and other parts of Colombia are not at all difficult. What is difficult is going there completely cold as a foreigner and getting top quality talent. I went to Medellin completely cold and stayed there for a total of three weeks during two separate trips. My strategy there was to approach girls who work during the day during the day. After they finished work, I would meet up with them and have dinner and/or sex with them. After they went home to go to bed, I would go out and try to approach at night. I had no real success approaching at night. The most I got were numbers.

If we are talking 'gringos' in general. But as has been mentioned again and again it depends on the gringo. If you fit the relative 'exotic' gringo bill I think thats where its at.

Yeah, I mean, this is my point.

How can a place with difficult nightlife be "easy"?

Quote:If you go to Colombia completely cold, stay there for two weeks or less, and only do night game, you may very well struggle or come up empty.

Could you stay the same for Las Vegas?

Hell, no. You probably could swoop 5-10 fly girls in two weeks in Las Vegas.

Could you say the same for Miami?

Hell, you could probably swoop a fly girl from each Cali, Medellin, Bogota, Pereria in two weeks of partying in Brickell.

Not to mention a few Argentinians and Brazilians.

I just don't see how Colombia falls under the umbrella of "easy".

RE: Medellin almost impossible for foreigners
I stayed there about a month. I would say Medellin is not impossible for foreigners, but it's over hyped. If you don't speak Spanish your chances to get laid drop, like, 10 times or even more. Now, that's still higher than 0, but I don't know if it's worth it considering that the city is pretty dangerous in not that cheap. Thailand, for example, beats Medellin and Colombia in general: cheaper, safer, easier girls (locals and tourists).

In defense of the nightlife argument, Colombia has to be one of the easiest places around to day game. At least in Medellin.

Scotian not sure if I asked you this but what's the diff btwn bogota and Cali? In your opinion. (Yeah thread high jacking but the dude is gone).

Bogota, being the capital and largest city naturally has more things to do and see, it has more of an international flavour as that's where all of the head offices, embassies, etc are. I really like Bogota and if it wasn't for the shitty weather (I don't mind the colder temps but the constant rain sucks) and pollution, it would be awesome. I liked the nightlife there because its varied, there's a big rock/metal scene there and they get decent concerts (Megadeath and Hatebreed played while I was there), there's also reggae/dancehall clubs, electronic music clubs and of course your standard salsa/reggaeton scene. Being the capital, there's people there from all over the country, so if you're into Costenas, calenas or Paisas, you can find them in Bogota. I also met and dated some very well educated women there, including an engineer for Haliburton, a girl who studied in Oz and another one who worked at the US embassy (which is the 2nd largest in the world)

Cali on the other hand has a much more provincial feel to it, I was only there for two weeks so can't comment on it too much but it didn't seem to have a varied night life outside of the salsa/reggaeton scene. The weather is much better in Cali, almost too hot for me but not nearly as bad as the Caribbean coast. Calenas really liked to party though I found them the easiest to get into bed, I banged two in ten days which is a lot better than the one in two weeks in Medellin or the one in ten days I got on the coast.

Thailand, for example, beats Medellin and Colombia in general: cheaper, safer, easier girls (locals and tourists).

I agree but girls wise, I would still much rather go to Colombia and am in fact planning on doing so next winter, I find the women in Colombia to be much better to date, more interesting, sexier, excellent dancers, etc. I've mentioned this before but on a date with a Colombian girl, two things are guaranteed to happen, even if the date doesn't go so well: I'll get to practice my Spanish for a couple of hours and there's a 99% chance that when I suggest that we go dancing, she'll say yes. Compare that to a Thai girl who is shy, speaks limited English and isn't interested in dancing so much unless its at a bump and grind night club (which isn't my style), I'll take the Colombiana any day, even if the chance of an SNL is a lot lower than a Thai. Different stokes for different folks I guess.

I pity the fool who goes to Colombia for only a couple of weeks, especially with limited Spanish and expects to kill it with the women, good luck with that. Its been said time and time again on here that Colombia isn't the place for that, Mixx was probably the most vocal about it, if you want to bang a different girl everyday (or multiple), head to SEA. If your game is tight, you have a good budget, you're well dressed, good looking and speak decent Spanish, I'd say you can do very well in Colombia, probably a couple of different girls a week, even more, its just not going to be anywhere as easy as SEA.

God damned them all, I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold, we'd fire no guns-shed no tears, now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier, the last of Barrett's privateers!

This...

Being around a provocative culture, becoming integrated into it during a date, getting to practice either Spanish or Portuguese, and getting laid to top things off is what makes Latin America (or even parts of Spain) a great place for at least self-development built into fun.

I think many foreigners are disillusioned with the situation in Medellin. Foreigners can pretty much date gold diggers, girls that want to go to leave colombia and lower class girls.

OP says it's almost impossible for foreigners to get laid with quality girls.

That is an important distinction, because a gringo's idea of quality is different to the Colombian one.

The Colombian guy is going to focus on high family social status, whiteness and "good hair", level of education and employment.

The gringo doesn't care about most of that. He just wants the typical hot latina.

So the gringo responds to the Colombian guy: "All those gomelas come mierdas that you think are high quality - you can have them. I will chase after the sultry Pocahontas looking chick with almond eyes, a sweet attitude and long straight india hair down to her ass. The one that isn't good enough for you is perfect for me".

Keep in mind that most of the country comes from lower socio-economic levels. Below are the stats from 2003 for estrato.

Quote:ESTRATO Y PORCENTAJE POR HOGARES SEGÚN DOCUMENTO CONPES 3386

1: Bajo-bajo: 22,3%
2: Bajo: 41,2%
3: Medio-bajo: 27,1%
4: Medio: 6,4%
5: Medio-Alto: 1,9%
6: Alto: 1,2%

You can see that estrato 4-5-6 totals only 9.5% of the population. Everyone else in the country is either rural or ghetto, as seen from the point of view of an upper class Colombian.

Obviously more people have entered the upper estratos since then. Even then, in the present day no more than 20% of homes will be in estratos 4-5-6.

So the gringo has his work cut out for him to score with the top 5% to 10% of eligible women by social status. Let's say you accept that premise.

Does that really even matter? The lower hanging fruit still tastes delicious.

Agree with that, but that said, lower class girls most often don't fuck sex-hungry (or, in some cases, emotionally fragile) gringos because of their charm or their sparkling personality, but just because they see benefit in doing so. Poorer girls are most often one-track mind gold-diggers. It's in their blood and called survival.

If this site was about serious long term relationships or guys hunting for wives....I might see the value in psychoanalyzing Colombianas and why they bang ugly dudes both gringo and Colombian.

Isn't it enough to be happy with easy lays instead of trying to figure out why Colombianas are notorious for dating down and Colombianos for dating up.

I thought so too before I went to Colombia but it wasn't the case for me (as a blonde guy).

I've had beautiful girls in Colombia but not as many as I thought I could, whereas in Brazil I've had more middle / upper class girls with less efforts. It's true that there is something about the Colombian culture that does not vibe well with me: a very formal stratified culture and the insane level of girls flakiness for instance. I've never experienced this level of flakiness anywhere else in the world and it totally disgusted me. On the other hand, an older blond guy I know who's very successful in Colombia (he's totally in love with the culture and knows a lot about it) told me he never got flaked there (sic). Maybe his secret is that he goes and pick up the girls at their house (Colombian girls seem very afraid of the unknown, for safety reasons). I suspect that Colombia is like the Ukraine of Latin America and older (40s and 50s) more established guys can do better than younger looking guys.

I also did not like Medellin at all and after 3 months in Cali that I enjoyed moderately, I wouldn't go back there. Way better and more interesting girls in Bogotá or Barranquilla.
In retrospect, I think Bogotá would be much nicer for me if I stayed there long enough but the climate sucks.

Overall I like Brazil better than Colombia and I feel more at home in Brazil (I have the same good conversational level in both languages), although I must admit that in most parts of Brazil, there is more of a piranha stigma attached for a girl to be seen with a blond guy/obvious foreigner than in Colombia where it can still be seen as high status. But even with that and even in Rio, I dated middle/upper class girls. To a certain extent, it is actually easier for upper class girls to date a gringo because with their looks, manners and education, it's much harder for the locals to label them prostitutes.

That's not my experience at all. Medellin was the worst place for me in Colombia (I got numbers but very few solid ones) and Colombia as a whole is not so easy to day game, even compared to Europe for me (and I'm a tall good looking young blond guy and my Spanish is good). In fact, internet game in Colombia was the easiest for me, especially in Medellin.

Can you elaborate on your 3 month stint in Cali and why you wouldn't go back there? I'm considering going there next winter so any info would be appreciated.

This seems to be true in almost any non-Western part of the world, based on what I've heard and experienced.

I personally don't care to chase after the upper class women in these countries because its too much of a pain in the ass, they grow up a lot differently than I did (fancy education, travel, maids, etc) and even if I did date one I'd probably blow it by committing some social gaffe like using the wrong fork at the dinner table. There's plenty of girls in Colombia who aren't of the upper crust but aren't dirt poor hood rats either, they may come from humble back grounds but they're pleasant to be around and well mannered. I dated one girl in Bogota who was 20 and came from a rural area in Valle de Cauca, she was in the capital going to university and was one of the easiest girls to please I ever dated, a night out on the town would run me about $50 and that included taxi, meal, drinks, etc. She'd chill at my place every Sunday and all she wanted to do was watch reruns of the Simpsons (the show is really popular there) and eat Doritos and I'd bang her brains out, very low maintenance and no drama at all. Its really easy to find a girl like her in Colombia, just hang out near the unis, in Bogota there's a strip of bars on Septima and 51st and on Friday evenings from 5-9 the place is packed with hundreds of students getting shit faced, pretty easy place to meet girls and get numbers.

God damned them all, I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold, we'd fire no guns-shed no tears, now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier, the last of Barrett's privateers!

Check her passport, she might be from somewhere else!

If people want to go for the "low hanging fruit", those girls in poor neighborhoods, go ahead. However, mind that it doesn't mean there's nobody going for them, any of you will be competing with his lover on the DT motorcycle, and don't be surprised if any of those lovers carry heat.

Volk, you're a fountain of knowledge when it comes to Colombia but sometimes you can be such a downer, what's next, you're gonna start telling us about gangs of gay guys raping Gringos in Medellin to keep us away haha.

I had a PM chat with another member about both countries though about something different.

What's more frustrating for those that have been to both Colombia or Ukraine (I've never been to either)?

1) Consistently getting flaked on with expectations of plans
2) Getting strung along for dates without getting laid

Any personal input on this from the forum?

This is a reassuring way to look at things for people wanting to visit Brazil in knowing how to position themselves with regards to game.

Last November....on my last trip to Medellin local gangs were kidnapping,
torturing and CASTRATING gringos. Kid you not. In fact a gringo was killed on 2 of my last 5 trips. One of them was a guy from London who resisted a mugging.......

The police don't prosecute a damn thing there. For them to bring charges they have to witness the act IN PROGRESS. not likely to happen.

Memorize this name : Villanueva, and you will never be even close to them!

I moved out of Colombia last week. I still have a lot of info, but I was never a huge club guy there. If any of you wants to, I can put together some kind of datasheet.
