We do not want to wait the two or three years for the prices to become for affordable for average income earners.
Claudia we are in the same situation, trying to buy something in Peru, so far the only chance i see is an apart. because house are really expensive i also don't understand why the costs are so high we are comparing costs with Germany and they seem to be almost the same. Seems my husband can not do an early retirement as he wants to enjoy travelling within Peru.[/quote]
That is a good plan. I purchased a old casona in Chiclayo Pimentel for $13K cash (right on the beach) Renovating it is alot less than buying in LIMA. even apartment are less here $38K for a 104M2 a3 bdrm apartment 1/2 block from the beach.
You should check out Chiclayo/Pimentel beach.
Spirit has contracts to fly directly from FT Lauderdale. We are just waiting for this to happen. Then we will not have to go through Lima and lose a day.
Chiclayo is the 3rd largest city in Peru behind Arequipa
