One of the best websites forums we have used. It protects participants from slander and harassment. Members who do not follow the rules are banned immediately.
Facebook/Twitter/ Youtube can be very dangerous. Andy's site is safe place to discuss topics without fear of retaliation by other members.

Don't drink the koolaid. Beware the narcissistic man behind the curtain. I paid, I joined, I was deleted. There is no freedom of speech.

The guy who runs this, Andy, charges you a $25 fee to become "verified" once you receive a postcard in the mail. The community is actually very small - about only 20 members that are active - the vast majority being 60+ years old and travelling mostly to Guatemala and Mexico.
Once you are a "verified" member, you can participate in chats on "The Wall". However, if you try to engage in a debate that is too spirited, the chances of your account becoming deleted are very high, and your $25 lost without any explanation or recourse. I know several other members who have been deleted as well. Despite the claim of being open minded, Andy has a thin skin and cannot tolerate any variation from his own strongly held views.
The website is also not so secure. Facebook Groups are so much better ....and free as well.

Without notice he posted real names alongside members photos and deleted two members that complained. Then posted video saying deleting members is his favourite thing. A Mickey mouse site.

The way it works is you send you info and $25 with credit card... then you get a postcard and code... input the code and your a member.... he refused me a member; also made a YouTube video about me... showed my pic and name..... the video was fun story.. hobo is safer than Facebook... going to get him for slander....

He provides a lot of honest information. But I think you have to actually inspect a place to know whether you want to stay long there. Lots of concerns, such as the kind of people, cultural activities, nice locations, health care. Not enough to say health care is great, I'd like to see pics and more specific information, or physically inspect and talk to doctors. I have no criticism of Andy, I only say he is only a start.

I enjoy his wisdom and perspective. You can learn a lot from him. He has travelled to 104 countries and he tells you the truth.
