2020 South American Expat Thread

Hi there,

Could you please if possible tell which parts of Colombia you lived in? Im considering this country for a permanent move.

I visited it a few times and noticed a big contrast in coastal towns/people and the mainland.

Overall, I didnt like the coast, felt like in Africa, lots of poverty, as a white person you're being approached A LOT, lack of safety.

However, in the lower, "plain" parts of Colombia, it was way nicer.
I left 5-6 years ago. Better if you ask someone else. The country has changed a lot.

I don't recommend a permanent move after the elections in 2022 tbh. The violence, poverty and instability is on the rise.
