The Best Least-Obvious Places To Live In Latin America

Gentlemen!

These days, the majority of the emails I receive (aside from hate mail, of course) have something to do with relocating to Latin America. Students that are wondering where to do a year abroad, retired men who are looking to say adios to the United States, digital nomads who are looking for a good base to settle down for a few months…folks from all kinds of backgrounds who are looking to live south of the border for various reasons.

Usually, they’re trying to sort out which city in Latin America would be best for them to live in. Here are some less-obvious answers to that question.

The second-largest city in Colombia. It is located in the Aburra Valley of the Andes Mountains. Since being a battlefield for gangs in the 1980s and 90s during Pablo Escobar’s reign, Medellin has successfully shed it’s image as a city known for car bombs and Colombian neckties.

My Latin Life’s Guide To E-Commerce In Latin America

My latest of many money-making schemes has been in the world of e-commerce.

Its economy was growing rapidly, and I certainly noticed people with disposal income in Lima, but there was a lack of cool things to buy – many of the big chain American stores that I saw in Mexico that offered impossibly cheap goods hadn’t made their way down, and I knew that import laws were pretty lax compared to countries like Argentina or Ecuador, and manufacturing costs were lower than countries like Chile or Brazil…
