    1. A question:
      If most of the writers lives in Medellin, can you truly say that the way it’s written It’s for the favor of all cities and not only Medellin? As the blog called gurumedellin and not gurucolombia…

      • The blog is Medellin Guru. And we cover the entire country of Colombia. We try to be unbiased and objective where possible. Where possible we provide statistics from reputable sources to back up our ratings.

        For example, see our comparison of Medellín vs Bogotá where Bogotá wins six categories and Medellín wins six categories. https://medellinguru.com/medellin-vs-bogota/

        • As i can’t read this article “Choosing a City in Colombia” i just wondering how fair is the article with the others cities… i live in Colombia in about 10 years so it is interesting to find an objective article about the cities in Colombia.

          • Sorry this is premium content. Need to subscribe for a minimum of $2 per month.

            Out of 13 categories in this article, Medellín is a winner in only 3 and Bogotá is a winner in 6.

    2. Dear all

      Yea you have a lot of choices in Colombia. Since close to 10 years I am living in Capurgana. Capurgana is a small Pueblo at the border to Panama. You only can reach it either by boat or charter flight.
      Some expat choose to visit this place in going quickly to Porto Obaldia to stamp in and out to Panama to extend the Colombia Visa.

      Capurgana ist the first place you have to stamp in coming from Panama.

      If you need more informations just type Capurgana into google and you will get a lot of articles and photos.
      If you don’t find what you are looking for then also check out Hostal Capurgana in Booking.com or TripAdvisor.
      My name is Silvio. I am Swiss Citizen and running the Hostal.
      Best regards to All new expats who are looking around where to stay in Colombia.

      Excellent Article . Excellent!

    4. Great article. It’s so true about preferences. I live in Cali now but it’s so hot! I prefer Bogotá weather. And for the salsa culture and nightlife, Cali is the only option. (Some people visiting Colombia think it’s the same throughout Colombia and even South America). 🙂
