The Cost for Renting Our Penthouse Suite in Medellin Colombia

Got a lot of questions from people wanting to know the cost for the penthouse we’re renting in the La Frontera neighborhood of Medellin. In case you haven’t seen it yet, watch the video tour of our place in the video below:

I am paying a lot more than what most people will need, and there are a bunch of personal factors that drove my costs up.  Keep in mind you can find a much nicer looking place for cheaper, if you don’t need the room.

Medellin Bats

Wow … We had an exciting weekend. I was suppose to go out and meet with other expats that are business owners to exchange ideas and resources, but my wife took both cell phones (one was supposed to be left in the house for our older daughter to call us as needed). And then when she got home, my Uber app didn’t want to work right, and then my cell phone crashed. I took all of those to be signs that I should stay home. Good thing I did.

About 2 hours later, while binge watching my favorite show on NetFlix, The Killing, my 9 year old come running and screaming about a bird in the house. I jump up and look to see what all the commotion was about, and there it was … a big old BAT flying around in my house.

The Secret to Traveling Abroad & Living Anywhere in the World

Living abroad is an appealing concept and idea. We talked about doing it for nearly 15 years but never really looked into it until recently, and finally took our butts over to live in Medellin, Colombia.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been slammed with requests from people inquiring about a variety of topics, like…

  • How do you determine which country to live in?
  • What is the healthcare like?
  • How do you support yourself?
