50 Good Books About Mexico, Central and South America

What originally drove me to live in Latin America wasn't the sex, sun and salsa. Rather, it was a fascination with the politics, culture and society in this part of the world.

My interest started in university with a socioeconomics course. Insufferable Marxist indoctrination aside, it was an engaging class and responsible for igniting my enthusiasm for Latin America. I probably never would have bothered to take the jump to live in LATAM if I hadn't taken the class.

Credit where credit's due.

My Latin Life's Guide To E-Commerce In Latin America

My latest of many money-making schemes has been in the world of e-commerce. 

I started playing around with it during my last trip to Peru. Appeared the country was ripe for it. Its economy was growing rapidly, and I certainly noticed people with disposal income in Lima, but there was a lack of cool shit to buy - many of the big chain American stores that I saw in Mexico that offered impossibly cheap goods hadn't made their way down, and I knew that import laws were pretty lax compared to countries like Argentina or Ecuador, and manufacturing costs were lower than countries like Chile or Brazil...

The Best Cities To Travel To In Latin America - 2018 Edition

Times have changed. Latin America has changed. I've changed.

Cities in Central and South America have a tendency to go through ebbs and flows. A great city to live in today might not be a great one tomorrow.

Take Medellin for instance. In the early 2000s, this was the place to live in Latin America.
