How do I find a place to live in Cartago?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"Several American friends live in the Cartago-Cerrito-Alcala-Quindio areas. Just outside Cartago is a paradise. The Cerritos or Quindio areas i think is one of the best places in the world to have a good life. A little bit expensive but you can have great choices from $100k to $300k. Several acres, swimming pool, everything you did not have in the USA. or if you want you can buy a house in El Prado neighborhood for $70k. Fantastic," said one expat in Cartago.

"One way to find a place to live in Cartago is to search online for rental listings. There are many websites that offer listings for apartments, houses, and other types of rental properties in the area. Additionally, you can contact local real estate agents who specialize in the Cartago area to help you find a suitable place to live. You can also ask friends and family who live in the area for recommendations. Finally, you can look for rental postings in local newspapers and on bulletin boards in the area," remarked one member in Cartago.
