#1-Some of the hidden advantages of living and hanging out “off the tourist trail”                                                                                          

#2- When Gringos rip-off Gringos.

There are lots of unscrupulous Gringos just waiting for the chance to get at your wallet. Beware of “golden” once in a lifetime investment opportunities. Most of them are offered up by gringo (not Latin) scammers who have been on the tourist trail honing their pitches. They know all too well that newbee gringos are ripe for the picking. So be on guard.

#3-Those pesky Police and FBI good conduct reports: What you need to know 

#4-Observations about native Gringos who marry second generation Latinas that they have met up in the states: Its a fairly common match these days, the lady was born a US citizen but because her parents were immigrants from Latin America she is 100% bilingual and he’s not. That’s the subject of today’s “boots on the ground” story 

#5- The very best tip you will ever get about owning a beach house in Latin America. Though some say the very best advice is to just skip the beach house but the truth is- being that it is the lifelong dream of so many gringo and expats- today we offer some very very good advice for those who want to take the plunge.  

#6- How to prepare for that eventuality when you get pulled over by Latin cops. Its the topic of our second “boots on the ground story”
