Expats in Thailand considering moving to Latin America prompted by Thai visa changes

Recommended Posts

I have worked in South America and I liked it. Many moons ago though. I worked in Venezuela (Non-Starter at the moment), Colombia and Argentina. All are a bit violent and Mexico has its drug wars. 

 

I haven't been to Ecuador which I think is the main retirement area in South America. I have been to Belize as a tourist and I liked it. Again though I haven't stayed in Costa Rica which I think is the main retirement spot. Just went through the airport and onto a vessel. 

 

You could flip between the 2.

Mexicans everywhere. Been there, done that.

 

 

Many Americans have indeed been very exposed to Latin American cultures at home. Some like it, some don't. Obviously travel to actual Latin American nations is needed to get a valid personal impression. The cultures are different in the different countries.

Following with interest as I'd like to spend a bit of time in South America before I commit to where I am going to fully retire 

 

If I had to pick based on the very limit knowledge I have it would be Costa Rica, Columbia, Ecuador or Panama (in that order)

I stayed in Rio 2 months and got robbed at knife point twice, in broad daylight. Not to mention all those times i managed to escape. Been in Bangkok 15 years, so far no such incident. I love Rio, wonderful music, food and ladies but, i just think it's to dangerous.

No, no. You have missed the whole point. Latin America and Israel are the main destinies for 'westerners'. Still confused why the OP still stays in Thailand.

Yeah, right.

 

But I don't see any farang holding joss-sticks and regularly praying at the temples.  Neither do they know anything about Buddhist concepts nor believe in Buddhism.

It used to because Bangkok was the sex capital and charges were cheap.

 

But not anymore.
