Bogota
A massive, sprawling city, the capital of Colombia offers a deep dive straight into Latin culture, pulsating nightlife and a intense mix of old and new. Historic plazas, parks and quiet lanes run alongside congested avenues and neighborhoods that require much caution to walk through. Certain neighborhoods are peaceful and safe, attracting remote workers who enjoy the very low cost of living, reliable internet connection and plenty of opportunities to meet locals and other foreigners. It's a gritty city but the chaos certainly has its own charm.
