Want To Start A New Life In Your Very Own Latin American Paradise?

...Or maybe you just want to have the GUARANTEED-best LATAM experience you could possibly dream of.

If that sounds good, and if you're SERIOUS about making the most of your time in Latin America - whether that means making money/doing business, meeting women, learning Spanish or finding your ideal, undiscovered hidden gem.

So, if you want to start fresh and escape the West, and/or if you want detailed, pinpoint advice on anything Latin America, then I want to help you.


Because, here's the thing...

And, let's be honest.

Incredible as life is in Latin America (I wouldn't live anywhere else), it isn't always easy. 

There's the language barrier, safety concerns, inefficiencies, scams, less-than-stellar infrastructure, complicated visas, a different dating culture, etc. etc.

I'm here to help you navigate all of those issues.

My motive is simple: to offer you the type of guidance I DESPERATELY wish I had when I set off on my first trip down south.

My name is Vance, and I've been living and traveling in Latin America for more than 7 years. I've visited 17 countries in the region, and I've lived for extended periods (more than one year!) in both Mexico and Peru.


During this time...

✅I've learned the language

✅I've started a business in Latin America

✅I've made local connections

✅I've dated Latinas from several different Latin American countries

✅I've rented apartments from locals, at local prices

✅I've lived a good life on less than $1000.00/month

✅I've mastered affordable, comfortable travel within and between LATAM countries

✅I've learned how to stay safe (even in unsafe neighborhoods in unsafe cities)

✅I've figured out how NOT to get scammed, swindled or ripped off

✅I've sorted out the best way to deal w/ corrupt officials and shady police officers (it doesn't involve bribing them!)

✅I've visited "hidden gems" - safe places, hardly touched by tourism - where you can live the good life on the cheap


But, let me tell you a secret.


Things weren't always this way.

My first year in Latin America was nothing short of disastrous.

I mean, really bad...


  • I was robbed (nearly assaulted!)
  • I was pickpocketed
  • I was scammed. Everything from taxi rides to hotel bookings...I even got scammed buying a tourist card to Cuba!
  • I couldn't figure out the women or the local dating scene
  • I wasn't able to make friends
  • I got sick because I didn't know which foods to avoid in which countries
  • I was almost denied entry into a South American country due to its visa policy
  • I wanted to work in a particular Latin American country...but I couldn't figure out how to.
  • I'd planned on living in a particular Latin American country, but I couldn't sort out a residency visa

...and the list goes on. And on.

....And on.


Looking back on it now (as much as it pains me...) I suspect I lost more than $1,000.00 to scams, theft and stupid mistakes during that year.

But that's not the worst part.

The worst part?

Everything that happened to me was entirely avoidable.

If only I knew then what I know now, I could have evaded every. single. one. of these terrible experiences.

The silver lining?

I learned a whole hell of a lot.

In the same way I took written notes that would later become my website's famous "City Guides", I also took notes whenever I made an error, got scammed or whenever anything else unfortunate happened to me in Latin America.

I'd review the notes, scold myself and take measures to ensure it wouldn't happen again (I'm a bit of a masochist)...

It took a whole year and then some, but eventually I sorted out exactly how to navigate the waters down here.

And I'm pleased to say that I've been incident-free for the past few years

. I've never been happier. I'm finally living the life I want.

I'm here to help you do the same.

Why My Consulting Trumps Living/Traveling Abroad Websites


You may be wondering...

But Vance, I have Google at my disposal! Why should I use your consulting services?

Well, first off:

With me, you will get personalized assistance on ANYTHING you want to know about ALL aspects of living or traveling in Latin America. My advice will be tailored to your personal goals, expectations, preferences, desires and budget. My advice will not only be based around what you want, but who you are.

Oh, and there's another thing:

Let me ask you something.

Have you every been searching Google for information about traveling or living in Latin America? If so, maybe you've noticed something.

ALL the cities and countries in the region seem to get overwhelmingly positive reviews.

How can this be?

Well, it's because hotels, tour companies and municipal tourism boards in Latin America will search out websites and PAY for you to publish a good review.

How do I know this? Because, I've been asked to do it! (of course, I didn't accept).

So, in a lot of cases what you're reading are sponsored posts. Inaccuracies at best, lies at worst.




...Come to think of it, I don't think I've seen a negative word published about any country or city in Latin America by websites like International Living or Lonely Planet.

Fact is, it's damn hard to get raw, uncensored, honest information about Latin America on the Internet. There's too many interests at play. Oftentimes, when a website or news outlet gets too big, it becomes all about the money, and can no longer be trusted as a reliable source.

That's the entire reason I created My Latin Life: to provide readers with the exact information that I was unable to find anywhere: the good, the bad, the great, the ugly.

And, even if you do manage to find truthful information out there on the Internet, the audience it's written for is too broad to derive much valuable information.

The reality for a 20-year-old, married foreign woman in Latin America is going to be vastly different than for a 50-year-old recently divorced foreign man.

And that's where I come in.

If you book a consultation with me, I will give ultra-specific, personalized information based on boots-on-the-ground experience, as well as years of study.


- I have no agenda. I do no sugarcoating. 

- I work for no country or company.

- I will not try to "ptich" you on anything.


My ONLY goal is for you to have the best possible experience in Latin America.

Frequently Asked Questions


Why - after 7 years of traveling and living in Latin America - are you only now offering consulting services?

Simple: it's taken me this long to reach a level of expertise of which I am 100% confident I can provide you with real value.


Can't I just read your blog and find all the information I need?

Although there is a wealth of information on My Latin Life, my website is - and always will be - general interest. The mission of the blog is to provide a very general overview to Latin America for beginners. The purpose of the consulting service is to provide you with more specific information and know-how.


What if you can't answer my question? Surely you don't know EVERYTHING about Latin America...

I certainly don't claim to know everything about Latin America...but I do know a lot! And, for the things I don't know, I know where to find them. When you pay for any service, I'll reach out to you, and we'll create an outline for the things you want to talk about. If there is ANYTHING AT ALL I'm not sure about, I'll conduct the appropriate research for you prior to our call.


Do you offer refunds?

I do not offer refunds. That said, I want you to be 100% confident that you'll benefit from my services before you buy. You can email me any questions or concerns you have prior to paying for anything.


I prefer to talk through text/email as opposed to video/audio. Is this a possibility?

Of course. I understand that some people prefer to chat through a written medium (for anonymity, or otherwise). If this sounds like you, send me an email and we'll organize a personalized plan that works for you.


Will you really be available to me 15 hours a day; 7 days a week if I buy the Premium Package?

Yes! That's the deal. I will be working for you. The package includes one 2-hour call/week (8 hours a month), and access to my personal WhatsApp line, where you can text/voice message me anything you want (questions, concerns, musings...).


I don't want to do this alone. Would you be open to traveling with one of your readers/providing tours?

I provide personalized tours of Mexico City through Mexico City Experience. I am open to travelling with readers with the purchase of the _____ package (we'd do a Skype interview first, of course) if my travel expenses are covered.

For more information on that, send me an email.


I want to buy property/get residency/find a lawyer in Latin America. Can you refer me to someone?


I am connected to organizations in several Latin American countries that know trustworthy professionals that can handle all things expat-related. However, keep in mind that I am not a legal professional. While I can give you names of individuals that come recommended, I cannot personally vouch for these professionals. You will have to vet them yourself. I do not assume responsibility for any services you take on after my consultation.


Why wouldn't I just email you for free if I need an answer to a question?

Because I won't respond!

Just kidding.

Well, not really...

You can email questions that can be sufficiently answered in one or two sentences. Anything more nuanced than that, I will refer you to my consulting services.


What do you mean by "not a recurrent payment" in your Premium Service.

My Premium Service includes a month of consultations, as well as direct access to me personally through WhatsApp. If you pay for this service, you will only be billed once. The service will start on whatever day you choose. If you'd like to book another month, you are more than welcome to do so.

But I will not charge you monthly. 

I do this for a couple reasons:

1. Some people may want to book me for a month at a time, but not for two consecutive months. Maybe they want some help in March, they're good for April and May, but want some more help in June. This allows them to do that.

2. I hate recurring payments. I think they're a cheap and cheeky way to extract money out of people. If you want my service again, I prefer you take the conscious action to pay for it during whichever month(s) suits you best.

Just One Final Reminder...


If you're anything like me:

☑️You want to come down to Latin America and meet unimaginably gorgeous and feminine women

☑️You want to enjoy a perfectly-made cocktail on a secluded beach

☑️You want to fully experience nightlife in one of LATAM's many vibrant metropolises

☑️You want to immerse yourself in the local culture


And, if you're anything like I was 7 long years ago, you have questions

❓Where is the best place for me based on my specific tastes in women, lifestyle, budget, interests, desires and priorities

❓What precise steps can I take to ensure my safety, wealth and well-being in a country where rule of law is lacking?

❓Are there any loopholes I can use to get the absolute best out of life/travel in Latin America?


If you've been thinking about heading down to Latin America and finding your personal paradise, but you're hesitating because you're still not sure of some things, my consulting services are for you. I can be with you every step of the journey. 

Let me work with you.
