#Pedro de la Puente on Feb 25, 2016 :
About renting prices in Barranquilla, the numbers given here should be switched. Locally, we refer to 'city centre' to the downtown area. But it should be noted that downtown Barranquilla is, in practice, a periferical area of the city. Yes, there is located the city hall, the international port and some other commercial areas, but there are little residents, and buildings are over 40 yeats old. Hence, most of Barranquilla's life occurs in the uptown area, that I assume is what we call 'outside city centre', and there's where banks, shopping centers, hospitals, upscales offices, etc. are located; being in practice, the city centre. Most people in the city goes uptown when they have to do something related to business or shopping, only going downtown for government related tasks.
