    Default Dominican Republic living

    What do people think of living in Colombia, specifically Medellin vs. the Dominican Republic, specifically the Gazcue area of the capital?

    If you guys had to choose, which place would you go with?

    In the past a number of posters have said nice things about Colombia. Big problems in DR: lack of 24 hour electricity service, corrupt politicians. I think it is hurt by being an island and having to import everything. Have not been to Columbia but its hi on my list

    I will choose safety! Colombia is a time bomb waiting to explode.

    Default Columbia

    Medillen is dangerous for extranjeros. If you can't pass as a local DON'T GO! Kidnappings and robberies are rampant. But it is a pretty area. If you go stick to Bogata or Cartejena. Bogata is just another big city, I have worked there a lot. But in general be very carefull.

    The Pereria is quite nice. Some earthquake activity at times. The area outside of town is very beautiful.
