Assignment in Bogota

Today I would like to discuss Bogota in Colombia. If you were to be sent to Bogota on an expatriate assignment or if you were to relocate there, you are likely to meet people who speak Spanish.

The cost of clothing and housing is high. The cost of food and beverages is average. The cost of transport is low. Bogota is the capital city of Colombia. Bogota is Colombia's largest economic centre and most companies in Colombia have their headquarters in the city. Bogota is also a major centre for the import and export of goods for Colombia and the Andean Community in Latin America.

From a day to day comfort perspective, you are likely to experience high degree of hardship. Be sure to negotiate an appropriate salary or allowance to compensate for the cost of living. If you live in Bogota or if you lived there recently, let us know what your experience has been. Would you live in Bogota again?
