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

-More details on expat love and romance in Latin America….
Do note that if I were to answer every email concerning questions about expat “dating and mating” I wouldn’t have time to talk about anything else. And since there’s been such overwhelming interest (though I’m no Dr. Drew), I actually wrote a 300 page book on the subject. As you might imagine, the whole subject is quite complex, explosive and very un-PC and I’m not surprised that some folks are a bit rattled when they hear the facts. But like so many other things down here, in some ways love and romance “Latin style” is a completely different ball game. It has a lot to do with that “gringo advantage” working full time for you…. So, like the man said, “why fight it”?
-Yup its so very true, Latin Ladies do have a definite soft spot for Gringos and expats (even dead average looking dudes like expat Eddie and me). But don’t be fooled. Whether you’re off or on the tourist trail (those US dollar saturated places like Costa Rica and Panama) makes a huge difference in the love and romance department. You really must consider the facts before jumping into any serious relationship.
Bottom line- listen to these words of wisdom or regret it.
-People are always asking me why I do this show… why give out all this good, practical info for nothing. Folks ask me if I’m not somehow worried that I’m single handedly killing the goose that laid the golden egg; that is to say, slowly killing the “gringo advantage” by advising people to come down to the altiplano and the like.
My answer is; guilty as charged, but with extenuating circumstances….
- I’ve put together a brand new, six 6 hour long, mixed-media presentation specifically for expats and wanabees called the 'New 5 Flags'. Just head over immediately to and get all the details. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Folks who are interested in my next seminar should send a very short email to and I’ll put you on my private mailing list for updates.
-Follow the link on the main page at to schedule a consultation with me. If you want to discuss the details of living, working, playing, doing business and/or retiring in Latin America; now you and I can talk about your situation one on one.
