Expat Rebel is a lifestyle brand and show about becoming an expat and retiring early.

Expat Chris moved to Mexico in October 2016.

He moved to Playa del Carmen for 45 days to attend a friends wedding nearby and fell in love with the area. After trying almost 30 different rentals in the area he and his life partner Nan moved to the Yucatan Beach communities and settled down.

Videos range from Expat News, Travel Essays, and upcoming Expat Interviews as well.
