Santiago Would Be A Top Retirement Choice But For Just This One Thing…
March 19, 2012, Santiago, Chile: Santiago, Chile, is a First World city with an affordable cost of living and a very affordable property market. However, its pollution levels make it unappealing as an overseas retirement choice.
Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,
Friends we spent the weekend with in Mendoza, Argentina, wondered about our impressions of Santiago, Chile, which we'd visited on the way to Mendoza City.
Last week's visit was Lief and my first to Chile. We started in Santiago, both because it seemed a sensible choice for a first look at this country and also because it was on the way to our ultimate destination, Mendoza. We're already thinking about when we can plan a return trip. Santiago has whetted our appetite for Chile but not satisfied it.
Santiago is a city that truly deserves the designation First World. We throw the phrase around metaphorically sometimes, saying that such-and-such a place is like a First World city.
