Bogota, Medellin and Bucaramanga are the nicest looking cities in Colombia and also the ones with the highest standard of living.

There are loads of great places in Cali and Barranquilla, too, just not as many as the first three or make up a smaller portion of the city in comparison.

Envigado is not a city, it got swallowed up by Medellin a long time ago. GSV is a great tool but doesn't compare to the visual and sensory experience of being in a city. Things like climate, energy, feeling, landscapes, safety, culture, leisure, nightscape, etc. all contribute to a city's attractiveness which can't be perceived via a screen.

In regards to the big six; Bogota, Medellin, Cali, Barranquilla, Cartagena and Bucaramanga, I would say that Barranquilla is the least appealing.

Practically all the west and south of Cali trumps most of Barranquilla for example.

Valledupar, a smaller city in the Caribbean region (ranked around 14th nationally) is in my opinion more well kept than much of Barranquilla.

But Envigado is an autonomous municipality, with its own budget, its own authorities, etc.

Cartagena of Indies sits on the border of the Caribe popular sub-region and the Urabeño-Palenquero sub-region, which has the highest west African influence in the whole Caribbean region of Colombia.
