Hello, where would people recommend to live and teach English in Central/South America? I will also be on a tourist visa till I hopefully obtain a work visa or move counrty. I don't have a degree, but I do have my tefl.

I would like somewhere with low cost of living, ok wage to live on and to travel about on. Also I would like to live somewhere on the coast, semi quiet living with good weather all year around

The countries that stand out are: Costa Rica, Mexico, Arentina, Chile and Equador.


Any help would be great.

Thanks

Sheryl

Mexico offers many possibilities for finding work teaching English, but, unfortunately, it isn't in Central or South America Wink .

Lack of a degree is going to hurt your chances at the well-paid jobs everywhere in Latin America, which isn't a high paying region to begin with. Mexico probably offers your best bets, but you will struggle to be on the coast where cost-of-living is often high and jobs scarcer and not as well paid.

Cities in Mexico that may fit your bill are Merida, Veracruz, and Villahermosa, all on the coast or very close.

You won't get a work visa in any of the other countries on your list and there's a good chance you wouldn't get one in Mexico either both for lack of a degree and for the simple difficulty of getting one in the countries you have picked out.
