Are you looking for the cheapest places to live in South America? South America is a great alternative for retirees who are on a tight budget. They can improve their living standards significantly by moving to one of the cheapest cities in South America. From Venezuela to Argentina, we’ve covered the cities where you could easily live on a budget, or at least, with a minimum wage job.
We know that moving to a different place could be a very big deal. If it’s some other state within the US, then you’ll have to deal with new people, new neighborhood. If you have kids, then you should add a new school, new friends for your children, and more. However, if we are talking about a new country altogether, then the experience is a little bit more complicated than “just moving”: you’ll be facing a new culture, probably a new language, new rules, new weather!
Hey, this is not exactly a bad thing though. Going through all that can be very exciting: it’s going to be tough, but the results are definitely worth it. Especially if where you’re moving to one of the cheapest places to live in South America! Trust me on this: you’ll never find people friendlier, more loving, caring or fun than in the great and warm Latin America.
In this list we’re going to help you find the best place to live, if you’re looking for both comfort and good price. Nevertheless, we know that sometimes there’s a little extra money that you worked hard to get, and probably want to spend living in a luxurious place, why not?
