I agree with Pedro's post below.
Barranquilla is one of the most divided cities I ever seen as far as economic status.
The North is more expensive, has malls, restaurants, banks, etc and richer neighborhoods.
The Center is commercial, a lot of street shopping, not high end.
The South is where a lot of industrial businesses are located, smaller stores, and poorer neighborhoods.
The price they have for a 1 bedroom apartment $750,000 COP is for an apartment in the north. You can find one in the south for half that price. And the price of utilities varies greatly depending on if you're in the north or south.
The meal for 2 people at $50,000 is also equivalent to two personal size pizzas.
You can find a meal for $5,000 in the South.
The average monthly salary about right however that is AFTER they take out for health insurance.
#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.

This is later info since it is now 2014. I found an apartment through AirBnB.com. Everything was good for me. Check them out and you will find housing around the world.
