Want To Work In Latin America? Here's How To Make It Happen

I always thought I'd work in Latin America.

I loved the countries and the cultures so much that I figured I was destined to earn my keep south of the border.

So, I went down every Internet rabbit-hole I could find to try to figure out how to live and work in Latin America: teaching English, hostel work, international corporations, hotels, sales, transcription, writer, bartender, house-sitter, etc. I was open to anything...

The Best Mexican Beach City To Live In As A Single Man (2018 Edition)

I'm finally qualified to write this post.

Well, not really.

Admittedly, I haven't visited all of Mexico's numerous beaches, but I have spent time in 5 popular Mexican resort cities: Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Mazatlan.

While this doesn't make me an expert, I figured I'd share my thoughts on each city and discuss whether or not they'd be a good place for a single man to put down roots in 2018.

But first, a few things to remember.

A Review Of Red Pill Orgasm

As much as I try to forget, the first time I had sex will always be burned in my memory.

It was around a decade ago. I was in high school (late bloomer) and I got a summer job working on a corn farm. I'd wake up at the crack of dawn, harvest corn until noon and then deliver it to various produce stands around the city.

Mikaela worked at one of these stands. She was a year older than me and went to the high school across town. About 5'7", long blonde hair and brown eyes. Thin as a twig but somehow was blessed with an ass that disobeyed gravity...

The Best Least-Obvious Places To Live In Latin America in 2018


These days, the majority of the emails I receive (aside from hate mail, of course) have something to do with relocating to Latin America. Students that are wondering where to do a year abroad, retired men who are looking to say adios to the United States, digital nomads who are looking for a good base to settle down for a few months...folks from all kinds of backgrounds who are looking to live south of the border for various reasons.

Usually, they're trying to sort out which city in Latin America would be best for them to live in. Here are some less-obvious answers to that question.

Best Places To Live In Mexico: A Regional Breakdown

I'll never forget that day. Dusty roads, the smell of fresh laundry drying in the sun, the crow of roosters, little Mexican schoolgirls in white shirts and black skirts...

It was at that moment, that first bus ride into a Mexican town, that I knew.

I will live in a place like this one day.

My only question was: where are the best places to live in Mexico? 

Well, I now think I know the answer, and I'm here to help you out.

The 12 Best Spanish-Language Telenovelas

I know what you're thinking.

But I have a confession: I immensely enjoy them.

Not only are they great for learning Spanish, but they can also make for some high quality television.

Here are the 12 best Spanish-language telenovelas that I've found

5 Reasons Why Mexico Might Be The Best Country To Live In Latin America

No matter where I travel to in Latin America, my mind always drifts back to Mexico. It has become the benchmark from which I compare all other countries in the region.

I've reflected a great deal on why I've come to love this place so dearly.

Sure, part of it is nostalgic bias; after all, this was the country that kicked off my interest in Latin America, as well as the first foreign country I've ever lived in.

But after having talked to what must be hundreds of travellers, it seems that others share my love for this country...

Rolling Solo: How To Go Out Alone In Latin America

I'm not outgoing.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy having a crew to hangout with, hit the bars with and bounce shit off of, but I am also very comfortable with being alone. 

I've always been that way.

If I arrive to a city where I don't know a soul, I'll have to go out to bars and clubs solo. And after much trial and error, I think I've finally figured out how to do it without looking like a rapist or serial killer.

Learn Spanish. Get Girls. A Review Of Pickup Spanish

My journey to Spanish competency has been long and tumultuous. It started with Spanish classes in Mexico (which I promptly quit after just a week), then moved on to audio courses (most of which I slept through) and finally to Latin music and telenovelas, with which I finally began making some progress.

Initially, my goal was simple: learn Spanish to meet women. But it took me months of stumbling through learning methods before I was finally able to hold down a basic conversation on a discotec dance floor (discotec is Spanish for "nightclub," by the way).

If only I had discovered a course tailored to my *ahem* ultra specific needs at the time, I would have saved myself a lot of fruitless effort, valuable time and money.
