-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 with the word WAITING LIST in the subject line or better yet, go to and sign in with your email to get full details and updates as well as any info on last minute cancellations.
-Be sure to go to and get more new audios, blogs, stories and expat info as well as my big personal report, “17 Undiscovered Latin American Paradises” This report came about after so many requests came in from folks asking me to list some of my own personal “off the radar” picks. These 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!
-What about transferring money down to Latin America as an expat, or if you’re just going down on an extended vacation? What mix of cash and credit cards should you carry, and what about banking?
-Securing your ID documents and credit/debit cards.
-Travel safely, with more piece of mind, using certified passport and driver’s license copies
-Opening your Latin American bank account(s)
-What do you do when a Latin bank asks for a co-signer before they’ll give you a credit or debit card? How do you finagle that?
-Some facts about the buy/sell spread when converting dollars into local currency and vice versa.
-Airport customs, gold coins and reporting requirements.
