Fact-Finding or Vacation
I received constant requests for a few years to assist people on a one-to-one basis. I decided in 2019 that I would accommodate. I now offer video chats one on one, as well as personal tours, and meet-ups for long conversations. Anyone that already contributes to the channel I will meet in person if you come to visit the area. I will list some basic information below, but we should discuss your specific needs. My goal is to save you enough money and from problems that I am an asset and not an expense.
For a Skype call: It is very simple, and the call will last as long as we need it to. Please email me ahead of time with your basic questions so I can be prepared
For Personal Consultant: Please be aware that I suggest only using me for 2 or 3 days max. If you need a guide after that I can help arrange someone locally and save you money. I will shed light on what it is like to move here, live here, and answer any and all questions you might have.

Our Relocation Meeting:
I suggest using the full three days. It has helped settle many with great success.
I will discuss the culture, and the best ways to assimilate. Our three days together will shortcut the learning process and have you well on your way to the Visa, Cedula, and your first apartment. We will visit various barrios to best suit you. You will receive a written list of various people to help you with services along the way. We will visit shopping options. In a compressed period of time, you will learn all you know to successfully set yourself up. Bring a notebook.
Advise you to contact me at least 3 weeks before your flight. Typically what happens is I will pick you up at the airport, and bring you back to your lodging (suggest getting 30 days, can help you locate before you arrive.) I will explain many details about how to assimilate here. I will drive you to the Visa office, take you to the photo office, Help you locate your 30-day rental if you haven’t already. I Will drive you around the various barrios to help you find what you like best. When we finish, you will have done seamlessly in 30 days what most people need at least 3 months for. I will show you how to avoid costly mistakes.
