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.

What originally drove me to live in Latin America wasn’t the sex, sun and salsa. Rather, it was a fascination with the politics, culture and society in this part of the world.

More on that later.

Through my experience, I was able to learn a thing or two about cigars and lucky enough to try a multitude of varieties from different countries.

Here are some of my favourites.

Leon, Nicaragua Women and Dating Guide

The second-most famous colonial city in Nicaragua after Granada. The colonial buildings are slightly less preserved than the aforementioned city, but impressive nonetheless. It is the second-largest city in the country, and many students come to Leon from nearby cities to study.

Managua, Nicaragua Women and Dating Guide

The capital and largest city in Nicaragua. Not a particularly attractive or appealing city in the traditional sense, but still worth a couple days…actually, that’s not entirely fair. Geographically, the city is actually rather nice.
