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

March 15, 2015  
-Expat Eddie checks out the proposed Nicaraguan Canal Zone himself- looking for new business opportunities. Being Eddie, along the way he strayed into a few bars and casinos (both legal and dodgy) and finally ended up getting scammed by a brand new gringo acquaintance and two young female con artists in Costa Rica.
-Another example of why in Latin America it’s not usually a good idea to start a “brick and mortar” business when there happens to be direct gringocompetition nearby.  
-Did you ever do something long, long ago that was so embarrassing that you’re ashamed to reveal it even years later? Is there something in your past that still makes you cringe when you think about it? True, they say people are basically the same everywhere, but you just may hit the reset button after you hear three true stories from young Latin ladies who reveal their own embarrassing and shameful stories(no names please)
-Expats looking to start businesses really do find the strangest niches to fill. Today you’ll hear about a veryunique two man operation…an expat and his Latin partner who travel all over Latin America, work about a one week per month in a very fun, low-tech business and make between $3000 and $6000 per day!
