    I lived in Piantini in the 92-95's. I liked it because it was close to Plaza Central. I was there two years ago and thought how I ever could have liked that place. I would say Aroyo Hondo, los Pinos, but maybe the budget might not to be enough.

    The OP's budget is 1,500 to 2,500 dollar per month. Has Arroyo Hondo really gotten that expensive?

    Depends what's important to you. I lived first in Piantini 7 years ago and would never consider it unless i never had to leave to go anywhere because of traffic, even then the noise factor is a huge concern as well.
    What do you need in an accommodation? where do you work? what do you like doing? I live in the outskirts of El Limon (less than 3 kms from Piantini) and its close enough yet far enough. Easy to get of town.

    My personal favorite is Gazcue and specifically right on the Malecone. You can find a beautiful condo directly on the Malecone for that budget with incredible views to the ocean.

    I lived in Torre Veiramar II and on the Malecon, it's very well run, very safe, and you will definitely get a place with two bedrooms and a maid's room for US$ 2000 a month, including the maintenance charge. The ocean views are amazing, but the downsides are the noise from traffic on the Malecon (so get an apartment as high as you can) and very little in the immediate area (not the safest walk if you run out of milk). I wouldn't recommend Naco or Piantini, way too much traffic and no views. I have always fancied living in Bella Vista, opposite Mirador del Sur, very quiet and from the highest apartments you still get the ocean view, plus the park right opposite. Again you will be spoilt for choice for US$ 2000 a month. My other suggestion is the Colonial Zone, there is a lot to rent there. Benefits are that you can walk anywhere reasonably safely, you have the Nacional Supermarket and Cuesta in the Conde and hundreds of restaurants. You could look at Narai or Castillo Colonial on the 19th of March, both very safe, nice and have good pools. And again these are easily in your price band. I don't recommend Arroyo Hondo, there are very nice parts and rough parts and the combination of the two tends to lead to quite a lot of crime.

    I wouldn't live in Naco or Piantini because of the constant traffic jam. Los Cacicazgos is the best in my opinion. I live in Las Praderas and like it as well, not as good as Los Cacicazgos but much closer to the city center.

    El Millón (I, not II) is fine as well.

    Arroyo Hondo is terrible to get out or in during peak hours.

    There are nice areas more east, like Naco or Piantini or more west as mentioned above Los cacicasgos, Millon (personally never liked Millon).
    You might want to check out if you want to be as far west as Cacicasgos because for me it is too far from things/places I like to visit.
    I spent 6 1/2 years in various parts of the capital but gave it up for Santiago where I am much happier (MUCH less traffic).

    Good luck in your search!
