Hello everyone. I am hoping some of you may be able to help me with some information about expat life in Chile.
My current home is in Colombia where I live just outside a small town which in turn is about an hour and a half from Bogota which is the capital city of some 8 million people. Where I live is a tranquil and safe, semi-rural area and it is set at an elevation of 1800 meteres high in the Andes. The climate is good. Not too hot and not too cold. The problem is that the air is quite thin and I am having some health problems because of the elevation. I would move to the coast except it is way too hot in the coastal regions of Colombia.
Chile's coast is so long, I am thinking there must be a nice place that is a moderate climate, reasonably safe, laid back, not too expensive, not too touristy, not too crowded and yet also not too far from a modern city with good medical care, hospital etc.
Of course I am planning to visit and check things out before making any big moves but I would like to hear any helpful hints from someone who has their feet on the ground.
Where is a good place to start?
