The Expat Files Show # 749 – April 8, 2018



#1- PERU: what’s wrong with it, what’s right with it? How do gringos and Expats make out living, and retiring there?

#2- The Odebrecht payoffs:

What the ass media (I mean mass media) is not telling you about the biggest corruption scandal in the history of Latin America.

#3-Big city living for gringos and Expats in Latin America:

Things to consider if you “Plan B” involves living in the big city.

#4-When Gringos and Gringas marry into wealthy Latin families.

It occurs more than you might think. Today we have two surprising boots on the ground stories on that tumultuous subject. 

#5- In every Latin country (even Cuba and Venezuela) there are a handful of very powerful families that have been pulling the political and economic strings of the country for generations. Today we discuss some things you never knew (but should) about a certain handful of Latin “oligarchs”. You just might meet a few of them personally- especially if you’re living well off the tourist trail.   

 #6-Announcing Johnny’s next “Latin American Insider” seminar. It will take place from Saturday, July 7th thru Thursday, July 12th 2018. Get the details and check out the early-bird discounts by going to and clicking on the “seminar” link.
