If you want to reside in Latin America, you'll need to find a way to make money.
The vast majority of foreigners down here will make their living doing one of the following things:
1) Teaching English
2) Working for a multinational corporation
3) Freelancing from their computers
It makes sense. These are the only immediately apparent options for expats south of the border who aren't citizens of their adopted country.
But unfortunately, these aren't always ideal work situations.
So, what do you do if you want make money in Central or South America as a foreigner, but aren't interested in any of the above options?
