Rules for renting an Unfurnished Apartment in Colombia

Generally speaking rent to foreigners is allowed with out cosigners here in Colombia if they pay 6 months up front. This is the practice in Medellin. A good agency will then allow persons to pay month by month after that. Usually they don’t allow Colombians to pay 6 months up front, that option is only for foreigners. Colombians ALWAYS HAVE TO HAVE A cosigner with 2 properties, or 2 cosigners with 1 property each.

Its difficult to get people out of apartments here so the owners protect themselves like this. They also can get insurance for bad renters, but they must have the cosigners. Agencies if they don’t have the insurance are responsible to the owners for the rent regardless if they don’t pay.

The Credit system and court system don’t help so things are a bit behind here, so owners and agencies protect themselves like this.

Colombia Expats Feliz Navidad and Merry Christmas

this year ex-pats here in Medellin Colombia celebrated Christmas one day early so they could have the traditional Colombian Christmas eve party with girlfriends, wives and friends. All the gringos got together Medellin and had a great time talking about their life in Medellin and the idiosyncrasies we all enjoyed this year living compared with our lifestyles we left behind in the United States.

the quickly growing ex-pat community in Medellin Colombia is mostly comprised of retired single men or married couples which return to Colombia when they retire. Whether they are Americans or Colombian Americans there is a lot people share together after living in a developed country and moving to or returning to a developing country.  There is always a lot to talk about. Last Thanksgiving we saw about 50 people get together for dinner at one location and another location we had about 15 people come together for a great Thanksgiving dinner. Although there are thousands of ex-pats living in Medellin, many keep to themselves or are only here part time.

The news reported that only 5000 tourists came in town for the holidays around Christmas! So as you can see tourism is still very young and developing in and around Medellin. So this really keeps the culture from being affected here by foreigners.

one thing I have grown to know every year a little better is that Santa Claus has left me behind, but baby Jesus has welcomed me into his arms and visits me at mid night just after people are finishing their first bottle of rum and aguardiente. Maybe it’s because baby Jesus likes the smell of alcohol? Perhaps that’s what draws him down from the heavens to come around and handout presents to adults and kids? Perhaps baby Jesus patrol South America because our fat Santa in North America just can’t handle the heat, especially with that big head coat he wears.

Whether your kids are celebrating Santa Claus bringing presents or baby Jesus cruising by a drunk families in the poor neighborhoods and dodging m-80s, and half sticks of dynamite, we want to say we wish you a Merry Christmas and a very prosperous new year!

Please stay tuned as we are developing a new database with over 100 exotic eco tour programs for Colombia this year. Keep an eye on and Medellin

About Fincas en Antioquia

I just have to take a few minutes to

announce our new website for countryside vacation rentals in Colombia. Countryside vacation rentals in Antioquia the state which Medellin resides in. With and one to 3 Hours Dr. from Medellin you can find a wide variety of types of climates and scenery. You can choose to vacation in a zone that is very cool or you can vacation in a hot tropical village.
Antioquia Fincas are one of my favorite vacation spots in all of Colombia. They are great for inviting the family and friends to relax or to come and party and celebrate special events like weddings in Colombia. It is important to understand that vacations at country homes are an important and very well respected part of the Colombian culture. You should never turn down an opportunity to go to a finca with friends and family. Friends and family will always let you know if the place is safe for foreigners are not. All of the fincas and areas listed on this website are safe and friendly for foreigners and tourists alike. The Colombian highway is very safe to travel on these days with regards to rebel groups. The past presidential administration and the current administration are keeping the roads safe for Colombians and foreigners alike. Big barbecues are very famous at the fincas. Bring your dancing shoes because Colombia and love to dance and love to show people how to dance. They have a lot of patience with foreigners when it comes to dancing and learning Spanish.

Your biggest problem will be mosquito bites or perhaps eating too much with the family. The most common problem that tourists have in Colombia like many vacation spots is adjusting to regular life after returning from a spectacular vacation!
