    On this Interview I get to catch up with Ariel Peligrino, owner of a giant bar and club in Montanita, Ecuador, Poco Loco. In his mid 20s Ariel left Israel in search of paradise in Latin America.

On this episode I catch up with Ariel to find out how he picked Montanita over Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Mexico, how he started from how he built his successful business in paradise, how much he invested, what it costs to start a bar and a few keys to success. This is the full interview of our most popular episode, "$30,000 to build a beach bar in Paradise". Please excuse the questionable audio it was one of my first interviews.
