I'm looking for data about: If I live in or near Manizales,what is the market like for teaching English in private lessons? I wondered if I want to do that, is it hard to find work in that field in Mani? Any info. would be helpful.I also would like to know what the possibility is for teaching english in other areas within the cordillera area of Colombia.I wouldn't like to go to any of the hot areas of colombia (places like Cartagena or Other coastal cities). I like the mountains.

I'll be in the city beginning September 6th and will update this list if I am allowed. So far though, I have not found any apartments under $700 per month. Not sure where the $200 per month apartments are hiding.

This can't be correct. Can it?
Apartment (1 bedroom) in City Centre 194.93 $
A $200USD apartment in the City Center?

Hi, any help would be appreciated! I am recently retired and very interested in possibly moving to Manizales for the mountains, the weather and not being too large or small. From the little information I've found, is all pretty positive from being safe, friendly and beautiful and interesting city. I did read on one forum that rentals were especially difficult to come by, especially for non-residents. Does anyone have any info on this or anything else about the area? Thanks!
