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.
Mexico City, 2016
I was finishing a lunch at KURA, a fancy Japanese spot in Colonia Roma Norte.
We were an eclectic group of patrons: an Egyptian girl, who originally moved to Mexico for her boyfriend and decided to stick around after they split, a Mexican woman with her own small advertising agency, my Japanese roommate, who worked at a bank, an American friend who sold security systems throughout Latin America and was based in Mexico City, and myself, a Canadian who no one really knew what was doing exactly…
Vance here to give you a short and sweet introduction to one of my favorite Latin American cities. Is it good for single men? What’s life like? All that good stuff and more!
