5 Things WE WISH WE KNEW (Before Van Life South America)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


When we first decided to take our home on wheels and all of our possessions with us to South America, I don’t think we were quite prepared for what we signed up for. Eight countries (in Latin America, that is) later and we have picked up a few tips and tricks that are helping us enjoy van life in South America to the fullest! We are currently living in our van in Colombia and loving every minute of it! But here are the things we should have known before we started.

About The Matneys:
We’re Christian and Aubry, a couple traveling North and South America in our converted Sprinter Van. On The Matneys, we love chatting about the reality of living in a van, what van life allows us to do, and how traveling to new places with new cultures can really open your eyes to so much about the world, our own country, and ourselves. Our little home is simple, but it takes us to the most magical paradises in the world.
