7 Reasons Not To Live In Colombia

7 Reasons Not To Live In Colombia | Is Colombia The Right Place For You?

Is Colombia the right place for you?
There are tons of reasons why Colombia is the right country to relocate to. But there are also a lot of reasons why not. I will talk about 7 reasons people might reconsider moving to Colombia.

What are the reasons to reconsider relocating?
Getting to know a new culture, is surely one of those reasons. You might have been born and raised in a totally different kind of culture. And it might be hard to adapt to new habits, therefore, you might reconsider moving to Colombia. It is surely a challenge especially at the beginning to adapt to another culture.

Learning a new language is another reason why someone might reconsider living here. If you don’t speak any Spanish but still want to live in a country such as Colombia you can’t but have to learn the language. English is not widely spoken here and it will be hard with no Spanish at all. If you can’t imagine yourself learning a new language or if you are not willing to learn a new language, Colombia might not be the right place for you. You will miss out on a lot of things because of the lack of language skills.

And another one is stability. Stability doesn’t go well with Colombia, meaning that everything can change pretty fast. Don’t forget, that Colombia hasn’t been stable for a long time and is still in the process of recuperating itself. There is still a lot to improve in order to make this country stable but meanwhile, we have to accept it the way it is. If you are not the type of person to take a risk and rather stays in a place that gives you more the feeling of stability and security, then again, Colombia might not be the right place.
