3You could do it with $50K but not $20. Not if you want to run a car, have health insurance and occasionally travel. even domestically. Residence visas for Chile are a lot harder to get now, so make sure you know how to go about it and bring all appropriate documents.

4I realize it's not a straight forward move.. My main concerns are exactly what you all have pointed out. Residency and transportation. Sites like "Contact Chile" and the like have decent looking apt's for rent and I could see paying $700-$800 a month for rent. And the choices of what you can rent for this amount are relatively inexpensive...
Does anyone know anybody who's done this before or are doing it now? We already have our passports... And the $$.. But are at least waiting till the end of this year... I appreciate all input....;)

5The trouble is that hundreds of people are doing it right now, trying to move to Chile. Check out an expat website for better information. Do not use Contact Chile or any other site to rent before you come. Stay somewhere and look around before renting so you understand the neighbourhoods or towns. Chile isn't the easiest country to settle into and you need to take a good look before you commit.

6Have you lived in 'parisio...? Every apt we've seen has been at least 100-300yds from the ocean... It seems the safe and cleanest areas are located next to the coast. However.., if there are houses renting or leasing for similar rates.. What areas or district names come to mind? We've ruled out Casablanca.. Based on research it seems a town beet to visit rather than reside. Despite tourism drawbacks.. These touristy locales give us a feeling of security.

7Hi, i'm an expat living in Valpo. I don't think it's what you're exactly looking for based on your comments. You should check out renting beach looking apartments either in Renaca or con-con. They'll be comfortably in your price range. Vina del Mar is another option but thats more of a city; the classic win some and lose some situation - proximity but more people. Valparaiso is lovely for touring and living in but you need to know the area before you commit to moving and retiring here. Jump into the Photo
