Unless you have a big estate far away from the cities, and the means to defend it, or family in the countryside, I would avoid Panama, Colombia, Argentina, Chile, Perú and maybe even Brazil unless you go to a Bolsonaro friendly state and again, away from the cities. Central America and Mexico I don't know much, except that North of Costa Rica, it's too dangerous, especially if you are noticeably foreign. Uruguay is falling off the cliff slowly, the country is closed to foreigners hence I wouldn't consider it and there is an all-out campaign to spread fear. For starters you can check this link: https://www.gub.uy/ministerio-turismo/comunicacion/comunicados/requisitos-ingreso-uruguay. Paraguay I don't know much, except that the country would be a great place in the countryside except that there is a guerilla war brewing in that place and the terrorists have started killing farmers https://www.dw.com/es/abaten-a-tres-guerrilleros-en-paraguay/a-55685580.
The degrees of stringency vary, for example Panamá is relatively "free", but the shadow of new lockdowns is ever present (the lies that justified the first lockdowns were never shot down in the public discourse and debate was not allowed), while Chile went into lockdown just a few weeks ago as well as Argentina and Colombia is in a sort of soft lockdown that is decimating its service sector in an already impoverished country.
Please be advised that I'm speaking from the perspective of someone who is looking to escape the mask mandates and the probable vaccine mandates in the future. The elites of ALL the region, with the possible exception of Brazil have sold out their populations. They are not just corrupt, they are traitors.
Silver lining is that there are numerous investment opportunities in some of these countries, either in the medium or the long term...
How about Bolivia?
