  • Playa del Carmen

    Love living here! This was my 3rd foreign country and the first that both myself and my husband got to figure out together. I highly recommend getting a bike while you're here and immediately signing up for a coworking space (I use bunker coworking). Not all places have great wifi and you have to be specific on the upload/download speed that you require when contacting hosts with questions. Avoid tourist traps. Do not rent a place off of 5th Ave or 10th Ave unless you are in Playacar or way off

  • Santiago

    Maybe Iโ€™m a bit unfair here, but Santiago is so... boring. People donโ€™t look so happy and arenโ€™t welcoming, city has nothing special, currency with so many zeros is hard to get used... didnโ€™t have a bad time, but it wasnโ€™t great either. Just dull. Maybe Iโ€™m wrong and in a long term it worth it, but it lacks authenticity and donโ€™t even compare to other cities in Latin America such as Mexico City or even Buenos Aires, both cheaper and funnier.

  • Puerto Escondido

    Puerto Escondido is wonderful - feels Tulum-y, but much cheaper. However, unlike Tulum, the wifi is terrible. Tried dozens of places, and the speeds are rarely higher than 2-4mpbs, but also unreliable. One exception - Playa Bacocho beach club has good wifi.

  • San Francisco

    I've been living in SF since 2014 and I have to say Cost of Living is misrepresented. It's a lot more expensive now (2020) than posted. 1-bdr in center is $3,500-$4,000 + $200-$300 for parking + $100-$200 for utilities. Almost impossible to find month-to-month rent, so this is for 1-year lease. Coffee for two + a pastry is easily $20. Dinner for two never less than $50, unless it's fast food (+20% tips are expected) and if you want actually something good it's at least $100 for two. Airbnb is $1

  • Canggu

    Bali is amazing, but Canggu isn't really that great -- actually there are SO MANY better places, like Uluwatu, Gili Islands or even Ubud that I can't understand the hype. As almost everyone said below, beaches are crappy, roads are terrible, sidewalks are non-existent and having a motorbike is a must. On the other side, food is great and cafes are pretty reasonable with all those incredible bowls. Anyway I wouldn't recommend it for more than a week.
