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.
Located high up in the Andes Mountains of southeastern Peru. A very important destination for commodity travellers who want to take pictures with indigenous children and pose in front of Manchu Picchu, which is only a day trip away…but jokes aside, Cusco is a charming town that, despite the hoards of tourists, has managed to maintain a sense of identity and authenticity.
And now for something slightly different.
I don’t usually write about things that are easy to find on TripAdvisor or Lonely Planet.

But when I Googled “best/interesting markets in Lima” today, what popped up was, frankly, wrong…
