-Bottled water, ice machines and water cooler issues in the first and the third world. Water quality and water purifier questions addressed.
-What H2O filter units do I personally use and/or recommend in the home/office and on the road?
-When in Latin America, always drink out of bottles- use ice cubes and pour your beverages into (apparently) clean glasses and cups at your own risk.
-Ingenious scams; how Latin lawyers skin certain gringo clients in gringo saturated areas. And how those expats keep getting milked over and over again, yet they keep coming back for more!
-Corporate taxes: how the local Latin govts will tax your business (i.e.,very, very lightly).
-DYK that in Latin America you can write off ALL of your expenses? Not just the legit business deductions but all of the personal ones too. Unlike the IRS, down here there is no such thing as a disallowed deduction! As long as you have a receipt (called a factura) you can write it off!
-Now you can 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.
