Wow, what great advice on this forum.
we are looking into moving to Argentina to set up a cafe specializing in chocolate drinks during the day and specialist food in the evenings, such as suckling lamb.
The cafe will seat only 10-12 people as we want a small business to enjoy a lifestyle aswell.
I am English and my partner is Colombian
We are not too keen on major cities and would really like to buy a house somewhwere, open the cafe in the house and maybe rent out some rooms aswell, for a little extra income.
We have about 150,000 dollors, maybe a little more.
Do you suggest any locations that we can start looking at.
We have been researching the business for some time, also the Dominican Republic is a possible location.
Lets see what you guys think.
David

David, welcome! What a great idea. I've never heard the term 'suckling lamb' before. A quick look at some listings on the net (mostly chefs) shows some great, tasty dishes. Now you have me running to my kitchen assaulting my fridge.

For something like this you can consider several locations. Buenos Aires is such a large place that you can conceivably find smaller areas that can support your offering, are away from the hot spots and make you feel you are not in a big city. Such places abound in the northern part of Buenos Aires in municipalities like San Isidro.

All northern districts have been very popular with foreigners/expats for quite sometime and city dwellers often take trips for the weekends just to hangout.

Another idea could be to research certain beaches for a seasonal market, for example Pinamar, which caters to a higher segment. Your budget together with your expectations seem very reasonable and locals are very fond of such ventures. There is a definitely a market.

Hi: I have been reading these interesting postings for two days and decided to join the conversation. I am a teacher k-12, Art/English. I want a change of pace...I am dreaming of a quite, unpolluted, beautiful, (To me that means clean, and abundant with scenic views, and flowering plant life.), place where I can get fresh organic vegetables, clean water, and high speed internet. 'Easy to please', you say?...that's not all I want. I would write and paint by day, dance tango at night and live on $600 american/mo. Am I just dreaming?

My information may not be up to date but you should explore "El Bolson" in southern patagonia. May need a bit more than that and I am not sure about the high speed internet thingy and the tango BUT if you find that gem anywhere in Argentina please POST IT HERE.

Roberto: Thanks for the tip. I checked online and found El Bolson to be a little to isolated. My next step is to check out teaching jobs with the embassy. Perhaps, there is someone on this site who has contact information.
