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

-MY JANUARY 2013 LATIN AMERICAN SEMINAR IS OPEN FOR REGISTRATION: Go to to get complete details. There may be one or two spots left, so don’t miss out.
-Some distressing news coming from the US Passport division. You’d better act fast and get a new PP (like now) while its still easy or you may not get another chance. There are many reasons why.
Can you answer the questions below, even some of them?
-(1) Name any and all schools, daycare centers and/or developmental programs you attended from birth to age 18, and provide the exact dates of attendance.
(2) List all the homes and places you lived from birth to the present day and provide the exact street addresses and the dates you lived there.
Well, those are just some of the easier questions you will be asked on the new proposed US Passport application forms. And you can’t take a stab at answering them either. That’s not allowed. You must be precise or your passport may not be issued or could be blocked or revoked at any time in the future.
Bottom line; time to get a new Passport before those new proposed Big Brother guidelines kick in.
-We talk a lot about living the expat life ‘off the tourist trail” but what about expats who really do want to live in gringo satuirated places like Panama and Coasta Rica? Many folks think they need to have a certain gringo comradary in a transplanted gringoized environment. If that’s the case, what will the real estate picture like for them? Are there any deals to be had on the tourist trail, or are you stuck with those first world prices you’ve heard so much about?
-Some tricks when buying Latin American real estate that can save you countless thousands, and some real life examples of savvy expats who recently made terrific real estate purchases.
-I’ve put together a mixed media program 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.
-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.
