My Latin American Insider’s seminar is all booked up but if you’re interested in getting on the waiting list for the Guatemala event, email me at with the word WAITING LIST in the subject line or better yet, go and sign in with your email to get full details and updates as well as any info on last minute openings.
-Be sure to go to and get my big free report “17 Undiscovered Latin American Paradises”
This report came about after so many requests by folks asking me to list some of my own personal “off the radar” picks. So here they are- places that any expat could live, work, play do business and/or retire, in style, for less than half of what it would take in the first world. And sure, there are hundreds more to choose from, but I had to start somewhere!
-Here are some tips on the safest places (regarding sanitary standards) to shop and eat. What about those restaurants and bakeries with those nicely-framed “health and sanitation” certificates hanging on the wall- a good start right? You’ll be surprised!
-A bit about the Latin version of health department rules, regs and inspections. A must for expat wanabees who hope to open a restaurant, a bakery, a deli or want to get into the food service business.
-Another strange but true expat business story: this time one of jealousy, envy and sabotage.
-The never ending strangeness regarding construction and building codes in the third world.
