    Don’t you have friends at home tho?

      All my friends moved away, so I just visit them once or twice a year and we chat online. At this point I just want to save more money and enjoy nice quality of life. I can always make more friends locally

      Uruguay and Chile is a bit expensive, but Argentina turned out to be really cheap. I work remotely with a salary of 3000 dollars a month and live like a king. I have had no problem with insecurity. Soon I will try more countries

      hmm Argentina sounds nice. what do you think of Mexico and Colombia?

        Be careful of Colombia. Because drug dealers used to control much of Colombia in the 70s and 80s. To the point where drug dealers did a terrorist attack and literally blew up a plane to kill a flight attendant.

        The new president seems based enough and not corrupt. Take my post with a grain of salt because I never went there.

          Colombia is now super safe and honestly safer than shitty parts of DC and St Louis.

          The drug war wasn't the danger part of Colombia anyway. It was the on going civil war between the leftist FARC and equally fricked up paramilitary forces that would often kidnap people for randsom.

          If you want Western security costarica is pretty much near japan level safe.

    I don't know anything about Colombia and Mexico. Argentina was a black hole for me, it totally got me, it is gigantic and VERY CHEAP. I am touring many cities in that country. Flights between cities cost between 10 and 15 dollars, food is very cheap. For 4 dollars, today I had lunch (plate + drink + dessert) it's incredible! The entrance to the parties cost between 1 and 5 dollars.
    it is VERY VERY CHEAP in this country.

        SA doesn't attract me, same reason. Safety.
        I did went to Mexico and I swear every mexican looked at me like they wished me dead. The food was bland and disgusting. So you might as well sit down at a hipster bar. Other tourists were just Spoiled Americans from Miami or whatever.
        The safest place supposedly saw a tourist getting shot by a stray bullet and I did meet some mexicans who showed me scars of being robbed by armed men.
        I'm from Europe so seeing guns in grocery stores and military actively patroling streets is fricking frightening. No I will never come again.
        Did not feel safe and it's way to big.
        I'm staying in Europe, maybe a little Asia and Australia.

              Santiago is overpriced and too spread out and the downtown is completely dead at night, there's a few other areas with things going on, but it's like a street here or there and far apart. Buenos Aires is like a somewhat sketchy European city with prices from 50 years ago.

      On a similar topic, how much does it cost to play golf in Argentina. I'm trying to google things and I'm seeing reviews saying green fees are like ARS 1000 which is ridiculously cheap, like $1.50 USD.

    It's fine. I would consider CDMX/Mexico before going any further south. Reason being you're still close enough to the US whenever you want to attend some kind of concert or event, or a shorter flight to another airport for cheaper flights to yurop/Asia. That way you're not shelling out like 2 grand when you want to from Argentina to some shithole like Italy.

    Currently nomading in Argentina. Super safe as long as you're not a moron. Got plenty of qties lined up. I gotta admit I'm spending way more than I'd like on food since I always pay for the girls, but still, considering everything I'm only spending 600-800 USD which includes alcohol restaurants and delivery. I could easily cut that in half if I only paid for my food. And also consider there 80% of argies spend 100 USD or less on food per month

    Get and 'External VPN'. They kind of look like a router. Better at keeping your true location a secret, although I would recommend paying someone to configure it for you if you don't know how to do it yourself. Then all you have to do is take it with you and plug it to an ethernet connection.

    Meme is false. If I am working and not traveling, I can live comfortably out of my car in America for $600/month. Have done so for months at a time in Colorado, most recently in spring 2022. Renting a luxury apartment in Latin America cost $1200/month or more. It is doable to live on $600/month in much of Latin America, but it is not "luxury" by any stretch of the imagination.
    >not sure if it's too dangerous
    Pay the frick attention to your surroundings, like everyone else does. Don't do anything illegal. Don't leave valuables unattended. Be strong and assertive, but don't escalate a conflict. Never freak out or show fear like these goofy homosexuals; stay calm and take control of the dynamic.

    BsAs can be sketchy but it's ok and cheap as frick as long as you have physical access to USD/EUR Cash, nightlife is very good. You can get nature by flying some 1500km in any direction, the rest is kinda dull
    Montevideo a bit more expensive, less lively but 99,9% save also it has some Cuba vibes nature meh
    Santiago de Chile perfectly save unless you go full moron, modern city center great nature close by. The city center feels kinda empty and lifeless in the evening (like Downtown NYC on a sunday night)

    I agree Porto Alegre, Florianopolis or even Curitiba are great for vacations or a 2-3 months stay if you can deal with some what sketchy internet (lacking speed, going down for hours etc). Was there in 2022, so they might have fixed that already.

      Bullshit jobs are easy to come by, but you have to know someone.

      The "time to strike" has been ever since a cubicle existed. The movie Office Space tropes it for a reason. You really don't actually do work at an office job. You could always lie about your minority status so they hire you as a tax write off/

      Disgusting? It's probably the most developed South American country, since it used to have such a strong economy. They have some really beautiful architecture and especially their nature. The food is great, everything is cheap, the people are very friendly and it's arguably safer than USA or Western Europe cause it's one of the whitest countries in South America. Also the women are beautiful and are known for taking it up the ass. You can live like a king in Argentina for $1000 a month. $2000 and you're practically a billionaire over there

      In South America the level of dirtiness, meaning risk of food poisoning, amount of trash on the side of the road, air and water pollution, the amount of squalid living conditions, directly correlates with how indigenous a place is. Chile and Uruguay are good in this area but Colombia is not.
      I've heard Uruguayans are all vacationing in Argentina though now because their currency collapsed so bad everything is on sale. It used to be the other way, Argentines would go to Uruguay for a cheap beach vacation.
