whats annoying me now is... when I checked flights while still living in Peru, it was $150 direct flight from Quito to Cancun. Now it's like $550-$800! wtf...
I wonder how cheap it is now with the economic situation
Interesting video. I didn't even know about what was going on down there, I guess caught up with the locura of what's going on with the electionI see hurricane Lota is putting a hurting on parts of Central America. Here in Cartagena there are a lot of parts of the city under water.... but honestly that seems pretty normal to me. I hope everyone in the path of this storm is safe!
(Not a huge fan of this fellow's videos normally but he has a lot of coverage of the damage the storm has done in parts of Panama)

Any channels on life in panama that you would recommend?
And anyone else who knows of good channels that show expat life in any Latin country I would be interested to know. Until I get to Brazil again in December I'm stuck living adventure through youtube
Seeing shit like this is disappointing, but not surprising. I was surprised back in June when Europe had many more BLM riots than Brazil did, given demographics. If you go to Brazil, it's apparent that your average black/mulatto has much less of a stick up their ass than American blacks. But flaring racial tensions are just a matter of media deciding to do so. I have a lot of faith in Brazil as being strong with Christian values, but not extremely confident as some kind of refuge for whites. If the Southern three states seceed, they could stay as white as 90%. But when I was there, the government was shuffling poor northern blacks and haitian migrants through the area like crazyBLM riots/protests in Brazil after a black guy was choked to death by security agents
It's truly mind-boggling everything originating in the USA gets exported (either willfully or as unintended consequence) to the rest of the world
Back in the day it usually took like 10-15 years for other countries to catch up, now in the age of globalisation, 24/7 news cycles and increased command of English worldwide it's more like 10-15 weeks
Latin America is vast. Just do a YouTube video of Medellin Colombia nightlife for example and you will see videos Of guys walking in the party zone a month or so ago. To clarify. I spoke with my buddies I’m Medellín and they said bars are open. Yes. They are limited to capacity with COVID measures as well other details. Point is you are right and wrong,,,,,, there are some with paranoia while others are going about life as before.I would be very, very careful about going anywhere in Latin America right now. From everything I've been told from trusted contacts there it's full on covid paranoia, curfew this, shutdown that, masks everywhere, etc with no end in sight, full support of the population & will continue for years to come. Tourists areas of Mexico may be a slight exception to this, but I'm not familiar with a single city in that entire region/continent that somewhat resembles normalcy.
If I end up en los paises de la hola-hola personas I hope I can sport something a little less droopy on my arm. She's got a Hillary Clinton thing going on.
Query for you guys. What are your gneral thoughts of the marriage-worthiness of Latinas? Particularly interested in las Cubanas. My experience is they are super-low in attention span on the whole. How forgiving do you think you should be with a belleza mas dulce if she is very feminine, but maybe a bit too sessed up or given to pop culture?

I can confirm this, at least from a primary source, my best friend from college.Interesting that no one has mentioned Mexico yet, AFAIK it has very easy tourist/resident visas, I think Yanks and Canucks can pretty much come and go all year. The violence is overblown in the media and mostly limited to areas where tourists don’t go although in recent years there’s been an increase in the Cancun region. I’m still getting to know the country, I’ve spent about three months there in total, so far my two favourite towns are Merida and Queretero, both clean, quiet, historic, safe and cheap.
