As for Cartagena everything is very expensive. For example I rent a room in a 2-bedroom apartment for $270 per month. But it's not far from the Old Town.
How much may cost room at Colombia coast on a monthly basis? Cartagena or something like that... Now everything seems to be very expensive :)
Bogota old town is called La Candelaria. There's also cable road to Monserrate mountain with good view to the city.
What to see in Bogota? I have about 10 hours in the airport.
