Looking for the freedom to live life on your schedule, terms, and dreams?

Choose El Salvador.

For years El Salvador suffered like most Latin American countries under the hands of greed, war, and organized crime. But now, this paradise stands as a beacon and leader for other countries to follow. It is quickly becoming one of the safest countries in the Western Hemisphere. The economy is growing while surrounding countries stagnate under continual corruption and polarizing conflict. El Salvador is the emergent leader in Latin America and developing countries for its people, principles, and leadership. This could be the best new home for you. We at Livin' Like a Local will show you this land of sleepy volcanos, gorgeous surf, and pupusas, and where the freedom to roam, control your money, and live your best life are the new normal!

As a worldtraveler and cryptoboss, I loved being hosted by Livin' like a Local. In El Salvador, I surfed, hiked, and enjoyed the nightlife. They took care of my visa extension for me, so I able to work instead. They also took me to the ruins. You should check them out!
