Me and my gf will be spending December and January in Colombia, mainly in Medellin. Anyone have any experience renting apartments by the week or month there? We have found many listings online but they are all waay to lujoso y caro and, worse, written in English. Definitely not what we're looking for. I speak fluent Spanish so I'm thinking we might be able to find more down-to-earth accommodations once we get there, things that people wouldn't think to advertise online. Anyone have any suggestions about where to look, both in terms of neighborhoods and also where they might be listed? How bad is the gringo tax in Colombia? Thanks!

I live in Medellin. It is a bit difficult to get an apartement if you don´t have a co signer. You might want to think about staying in a hotel, since you are only here for 2 months. There are some pretty good ones at around $10 per day.
