Where is the best place to live in South/Central America?

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I are planning on moving to South or Central America in about 6 months, but we don't know where the best place to move is.

Our first task when we get there will be to learn Spanish, so we want a place that has good language schools that give back to the community and their teachers. We also want a place that has a good international culture and young people that we can meet and explore with. We are both recent college grads and want to be able to make friends and have a good time. However, we don't want a place that is super touristy.

We also want something pretty cheap as we are planning on not working for the first couple months. After that we would like to be able to find a job and possible volunteer opportunities as well.

I would prefer something on the beach, but that is not a necessity as long as it is beautiful.

If anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated! Or if anyone knows of any good websites that have information about good Spanish Schools that would be awesome also!

Thanks for your help!
