Cost Of Living In Colombia

Colombia offers a premium lifestyle at a not-so-premium price. The cost of living in Colombia is likely to be much less than you are used to back home. Many expats estimate their monthly expenses are roughly 50% to 60% of what they were before making the move to Colombia. The cost savings are not just for residents either, as many tourists find food, accommodations, and travel expenses to be lower than most anywhere in South America.

The low cost of living in Colombia is one of the most attractive aspects drawing in retirees. Whether you are on a social security income and need to stretch your retirement dollars or your looking to live out your savings in a life of luxury, you can live a happy retirement in Colombia. Everything from groceries to prescriptions are likely to cost much less in Colombia.
