Anonymous, yes it is very expensive to rent in Cartagena, esp if you are looking at areas such as Bocagrande, Centro historico or Manga. I live in Pie de la popa where it is middle of the road, the further out you go the cheaper it is, but still more than other cities in Colombia.
#Petra on Aug 04, 2015 :
I am guessing that these prices, especially the rent/services are based on level 6 prices, depending where you live the price varies, I live in level 4 and we pay around 200,000 in gas, elec, water bills.
#Anonymous on Apr 03, 2015 :
Is rent really this much more expensive than Bogota and medellin? All the other prices listed here are less but rent is almost 3x as much?
