The cost of living is relatively low, making it an attractive destination for those looking to stretch their budget. The city is also well-connected, with a reliable public transportation system and plenty of coworking spaces for digital nomads. Expats will find a welcoming and diverse community, with plenty of opportunities to make friends and explore the city," wrote a member who made the move to Santiago, Chile.
