Having visited Columbia last year for just over a month I absolutely fell in love. I have now just returned from Cuba and have had a realisation that I love the Latin/South American way of life and need to move somewhere Spanish speaking.
So I am thinking Medellin as it had the right balance of museums/art galleries/nightlife to keep me stimulated with the added bonuses of it being hot and of the people being so friendly.
I am thinking that I will teach English if possible and wondering if anyone has any advice on how to go about this? Do I need to do a TEFL? Is it best to do this before or after I leave? How shall I go about finding accommodation? I would ideally like to live with other Columbians who are around my age (24) and like to have fun. How much does it cost to rent in Medellin and how much would be a good amount to save before I leave? Where are the best parts to live in? Do I need a work visa and how long can I stay?
These are just a few questions popping into my head but any advice would be appreciated.
