Expat relocation

Postby woodchuck » Wed Sep 18, 2019 9:38 am

I have a newly-retired friend in the US that will be relocating to Peru.
He is seeking a location that offers:
1. Sunny/warm weather year-round.
2. Within 2 hours of Lima.
3. Reasonable house/land prices.
Any help will be greatly appreciated (realtors welcome to reply).

Thanks for your suggestions.
I will do some research online to get a better idea of these locations.

Hello WoodChuck, There are some small towns in the nearby area of Lima, within 2 hours or less.

The first one is Azpitia an small town, not as sunny as Chosica, but could be interesting as well.

On the same road to Azpitia, but going in the direction to the highlands, there is another town as Calango (Sunny as Chosica)

Take into consideration that those locations are in the opposite side of Huaral, it's Panamericana Sur and both are tiny town

Thank you windsport for your suggestions.
My friend plans to be in Peru in January.
If anyone has other suggestion, please share quickly as I plan to visit these areas & do research.
I do appreciate all the help to date.

You are Welcome, Wood..

You might want to put on your list Cieneguilla and all the towns on the way up to the highlands. The last town in the row is Antioquia and is 3+ hours away from Lima (There is another city in Colombia with the same name)

My friend can not afford the real estate prices in Cieneguilla plus I have been told there are issues with water (having to be delivered by tanker truck) vs. natural groundwater/wells.
As I have friends in VMT, it would be worth exploring the neighboring towns & then coming back thru the mountain pass to say "Hi". I have been told it takes only 45 minutes?

Thanks for your help Windsport.

This should help you decide on the mountain pass...

Tarapoto

1. Sunny/warm weather year-round - 26-34 degrees daily year round
2. Within 2 hours of Lima. - 5-7 flights per day. USD 35-60 one way
3. Reasonable house/land prices. - Many RE development projects ongoing. Even though Tarapoto is considered expensive, the RE investment boom has resulted in over-development and a price drop. It is a great time to buy in Tarapoto.
4. One of the safest and most social places in Peru. Gay friendly, great food, huge expat community.

Sorry for the confusion.
I meant the "mountain pass" for traffic from Cieneguilla area to VMT.

Thanks.
