If you’re a foreigner (gringo), moving or visiting Medellin, you will get taken advantage of. You will pay more for the exact same services locals use.
Gringo Pricing … That’s what they call it here.
The locals can generally tell you’re not from here and they will charge you a lot more money for services like rent, cars, goods off the street, etc..
I’ve got taken many times since being here and it will happen to you — I promise!
But you can minimize it by connecting with a local who can act on your behalf. For us, Ana has been our #1 person for helping us assimilate into this new culture.
Watch the video below to learn more about her company, Expat Solutions, where she offers a variety of services for expats and vacationers coming to the area.
So … What do you think?

*Please note: This is a premium service for those serious about moving here. It’s not cheap and it’s not super expensive either. I assure you that it’ll cost you way more trying to do it on your own. We went out looking for a Condo to buy and the price shot up an extra $50,000,000 PESOS because we were gringos. Now, I don’t talk to anyone until after Ana’s speaks with them. Do yourself a favor and don’t skimp around on pricing issues … It’ll cost you more sooner than later.
