Expats-Talk-About-The-Biggest-Challenges-They-Face-Living-in-Latin-AmericaExpats Talk About The Biggest Challenges They Face Living in Latin America

Expats talk about some of the biggest challenges they've faced living in Latin America. Whether you're moving to Panama City or Punta del Este, this article is a must read to help you prepare (hint: you'll be much happier if you learn the language) and adjust your expectations (realities: the roads are rough, the pace of life is slower and bureaucracy is unavoidable). Despite all of the challenges, the list of what expats like about life in Latin America far exceeds the challenges.

El Salvadore has the HIGHEST murder rate per capita in ALL of Central America: 103 per 100,000. No thanks!

Yes. Thank you. El Tunco is definitely not for families. It is known in El Salvador as a "gringo-hippie" place. Cheap digs, cheap booze, cheap drugs, cheap dates. HOWEVER, there have been a few nice developments as far as hotels are concerned, in recent times. Unfortunately, there will likely be young dysfunctional tourists with sore and swollen egos milling about for some time to come.

And, yes, consider an area such as the San Francisco Bay Area, with a population roughly equal to that of El Salvador, having a weekend holiday marred by 200-300 murders, and you get the flavor of El Salvador.
