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

September 23, 2012  

The truth about those peaky volcanoes. Yup, there are lots and lots of active volcanoes in Latin America. Some are blowing off as we speak. You can hardly avoid them. In fact, little San Salvador, only about the size of Massachusetts, has 22 of them with 6 presently active and spewing fire and brimstone now and again. Now here’s the real truth about all those volcanoes you hear so much about; the eruptions, the dangers, as well as the recommendations for Gringo’s and Expats when building, buying or doing business in the direct line of one.

What about going on a hike or tour up an active volcano summit? Backpackers and Eco-Gringos just love doing stuff like that. Well yes, it is a very excellent adventure… but I don’t recommend it. Not that the volcano itself is life threatening or extraordinarily dangerous. You won’t get trapped in lava or pelted with steaming rocks; nothing so Indiana Jones-ish. Instead, there’s a good chance you’ll get mugged along the way.
How Expats get million dollar views for 50 grand or less
I’ve been asked by many listeners if will ever do another Latin American “Expat Wisdom” seminar like the one I just held (off the gringo tourist trail) in Central America. Seems that word has gotten around just how fun and successful that one was, and there has been a surge of interest for another. Folks who are interested, send a very short email to and I'll put you on my private mailing list for updates. I am thinking about January 15-21. That’s to avoid the holidays and holiday airfares (and of course the end of the world- according to the Mayan calendar). Just send me that email and I’ll fire off details as they come. And sure, there’ll be a money back guarantee… and more. Get this… I’ll give you TRIPLE your money back and a brand new car if the Mayan prophesies do come true. How’s that for a deal?
People are always asking me if I have any books, articles, interviews, blogs or anything else out there besides the PRN show. Well, over the last few days I've rec'd a lot of emails from listeners saying that they’ve heard about a private new 6 hour video program I put together called the 'New 5 Flags' and they want to know more about it. Anyway, the word got out somehow and it’s not so private anymore. Not that I wanted to keep it a secret from my listeners, but the publisher who owns the rights, wanted to keep the initial offer very exclusively for their own subscriber list, and so we only released it to the folks who follow me and Robert on People that regularly visit already know about it, but so you can get in on it too. 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.
