For those deaming of moving to Brazil:

The immigration laws are a bit sticky, takes some years to get a permanent visa. You can stay for 6 months per year as a tourist here.

It is a wonderful country with "wonderful" problems and opportunities. But you have to accept a certain degree of insecurity here: violence, fluctuating economics, things changing midstream. I have been here for 30 years, since Nixon was elected...

The people are wonderful, and for those more spiritually inclined there is a fresh breeze blowing here.

Today I personally think it´s better to stay home and "pick away" at your local situation.  When you expatriate you lose several years of your life getting your show together. Just my two cents.

A lot of wisdom here. We made the transition to Costa Rica, but at least half the people who move here, move back for various reasons. One thing to realize is that living in a tourist meca like Costa Rica, for example, is not the same as being a tourist. We have been in Costa Rica for about eight years now, with business more than ten.
