The Expat Files: Living in Latin America A guide to moving to Latin America, finding work, and settling in.

January 22, 2016  
 -An update on my recently completed Expat Insider, “boots on the ground” Seminar.
-The nitpicky details about Latin American bank accounts that no one mentions, but you’d better know! 
-Latin credit and debit card tips: It’s a good idea to have one or two. Nearly all Latins do use them indiscriminately. Don’t fall into that perilous trap. Use them very sparingly and only for larger purchases and cash withdrawals.
-Things to know about the poor Indigenous Latin populations and notes on the unchanging, perpetual class system. Latin middle-classes and wealthier Latin upper classes have boxed them in.
-A bit about the love/hate relationship Latins have with their own inglorious history and melting pot heritage.
-What green gringos and Expats who might be are hiring bilingual Latins should expect.
-Today Expat Eddie, a formerly clueless and now infamously successful restaurateur, shows us the lighter side of his own clever job interviewing tactics.  
-Visit me Johnny (and Expat super-blogger John Galt) at our new joint website . Its where you’ll get real “boots on the ground” info, experienced expat blogs and reports. It’s a work in progress so please be patient. We’re continually improving and expanding the format.

At we have a new feature: a blog written by a very trusted Latin lawyer friend and colleague (with great credentials). He will be blogging regularly from Central America touching on everything you want to know about Latin Legal issues such as residency, passports, contracts, S.A. corporations, banking, Trusts, courts, lawsuits, and much more. He’ll stress all manner of Latin Legal issues as they pertain to Expats. Better yet, you’ll be able to contact our Lawyer and email him your own legal questions too…
