I can't wait to retire there. (new window)

I mean, assuming that it's still a deal in 25 or so years. I've been around a little bit, and still it might be my favorite place.

I've always had a fascination with BA...I've heard it described as a Latin version of Paris, but with nicer people. The weird thing is that tourism seems to be a hard sell unless you're going there for Patagonia or dancing lessons. I just think it looks like a generally cool place. Like New Zealand, but a fraction of the cost and hassles.

Oh Argentina, you've been so kind to economists over the years, providing case studies in asinine policies. The hits just keep on coming.

This is going to work about as well as "Cash for Clunkers".

They are just trying to placate their population so they don't ask more questions as to why their fiat currency keeps becoming more and more worthless.

If you want to keep people from going hungry, fine. Just don't try and pass it off as an inflation fighting measure.

BA is nice and the last time I was there a relatively safe city. I got into a cab by myself at 3 in the morning there and got to my hotel safely. Try that in Bogota, Lima, or oh gawd Caracas.

For those that haven't been down range, getting into cab by yourself in many countries in Latin America is playing russian-roulette with your life. Chile and Argentina are/were exceptions. Pity I liked BA.

Buenos Aires is all kinds of awesome. Awesome food, beautiful city, great people, ghastly weather.

Real estate prices in the pretty parts of BA are crazy, though. Not NYC crazy, but getting there.

ehhhhh BA may be safer than others in South America, but there are parts of the city the cops don't enter.

My sister-in-law lives in a nice residential section of the city and had a home-invasion with 4 armed guys, which was the 3rd or 4th in the area in a short period of time.

The gov't makes up economic data saying the economy is great meanwhile the prices double in the stores.


Don't get me wrong, I really love visiting, but unless you have a lot of dough, it may not be the best place to retire, unless you want to head south. Mar del Plata is a very nice small-mid sized city.

This is true of much of Latin America. Public transportation systems are a joke so you need* a car. Healthcare is often terrible so you need private practices. State-funded education is awful so you send your kids to private schools if you can, etc.

A good chunk of Latin America makes for good tourist destinations (unless you are local in which case there is a good chance you can't afford it) and it's not a bad place to live in provided you are minted (and were are talking a-couple-million-in-the-bank minted).


*The concept of need is of course, relative. Having to live with the low-level stress of whether or not you are getting mugged today while you ride the bus back home does get old pretty fast.

Its part of the safety brief we get, granted its been some 8 years since I've been, YMMV. Anyway have the Hotel call your cab or use the hotel's car/limo service do NOT use public transportation for shiat.

Look both ways before crossing the street because those farkers drive like demons. ;o) At rush hour don't bother driving, they gridlock/block intersections so they don't miss their light.

Bolivia is poor as hell, granted I was only in LaPaz. Which wasn't that bad safety wise to walk around at the time, but we were in the hotel area and traveled in groups. Same rule about cabs and public transportation applies. Things have changed since Evo took over.

I dunno, I'd think you're still playing Russian Roulette with your life in BA - the traffic in that city is white-knuckle terror.

And for others who've never been:
YES, Buenos Aires is a good tourist destination.
1) The food is American-friendly. They drink American-style beer and eat steak and pasta.
2) The women are hot... and tiny.
3) It's a big city and there's a lot to see.
4) With the exchange rate, you are nauseatingly rich there.
5) It is a farking beautiful city.

Only a few catches:
1) Like any big, poor city, Bs.As. has a lot of places that are dangerous.
2) Air fare to Ezeiza airport is farking expensive - it's not a cheap country to get to.
3) FFS will those porteños learn to pick up their dog shiat?

What changed? My impression is that the Argentine economy has been a shiatstorm since the '80s - sure, the mayhem peaked in the '90s, but it's always been a mess. This is just the latest chapter, hardly some abrupt catastrophe. I'd wager the people there are used to it.

They were doing pretty good in late 1990s from what I was told by folks living there. Then the bottom dropped out. I haven't been back since 2005 and things were sliding then and it appears to have gotten worse since that time. Now I was only down there for a couple of weeks on business so my perspective was a bit different.

Things may get temporarily better or worse, but Argentina has yet to have a modern government that really understands that fiscal and monetary policy have to be grounded in reality, and without that the bad times and defaults will always be right around the corner. They need a Cardoso and it doesn't look like they'll get one any time soon.

This was true 4 years ago, but not anymore.

Yes the exchange rate is still favorable, but inflation has ruined the bargain.

You can still find decent deals, but 4 years ago, when the x-rate was even less advantageous, you could have a really really nice dinner for 2 for $30-$40 total.

It is not *that* bad. In Chile you can live VERY well for around 50k to 70k USD a year. Rent a good place in good parts of town, eat well, access good (private) healthcare, drive a nice (not awesome, but nice) car, etc.

The problem is that less than 5% of Chilean households make that kind of money.

My point exactly. It's good if you can afford to not have to mix with the unwashed masses. For the rest of the people? Not so good.

60 K starts to get into the realm of the impossible, like you said.

Disclaimer: Most of my experience comes from living in Central and South-Central Mexico and in Central America (lived in El Salvador, extended non-touristy visits to Nica, CostaR, Guatemala)

Perspective: Average policeman in Mexico gets about (gross) 400 USD/month

Buddy of mine, just graduated from Chem.Eng, was offered a position at a production line (food industry I think) with a gross salary of 1,200 USD/month.

A two bedroom apartment in any mid-sized city in Mexico goes for about 300-600 USD/mo.

In San Salvador I managed to find a rather nice one for 650. The real state agent made it clear these were 'foreigner' prices. Not because locals could get the same places for less but because they simply could not afford them (unless you are in politics, of course).

cool story, bro:

Was standing in the lobby of the building that houses the Canadian Embassy in San Salvador(and also the Israeli one, IIRC) waiting for a colleague. I'm standing about 15 meters from the main doors (glass facade) and I see a woman standing just outside the doors get approached by a guy. Guy suddenly has a gun in his hand. Both cross a few words. Woman gives him her mobile. Guys walks away.

Bonus points: there were two armed guards this side of the doors, maybe 5 meters away from her.

/end cool sad story, bro

This was 4 years or so ago but I dont expect things to have changed much.

Look both ways before crossing the street because those farkers drive like demons. ;o) At rush hour don't bother driving, they gridlock/block intersections so they don't miss their light.

Bolivia is poor as hell, granted I was only in LaPaz. Which wasn't that bad safety wise to walk around at the time, but we were in the hotel area and traveled in groups. Same rule about cabs and public transportation applies. Things have changed since Evo took over.


Thanks for the tip. For Bolivia I planned on visiting La Paz, Tihaunacu, and Potosi. Hoping to go to Potosi in early May for the Tinku. :)

This text is now purple: Z_since_1516: You guys do realize 80%+ of our farm subsidizes go to the Meat/Dairy industries (mostly animal feed) right? That's why you can get a double cheeseburgers for a dollar.

You do realize you posted this critique of American meat prices in a thread about the only country with cheaper beef than the US, right?


So we're second most farked up?
USA! USA!
