Thinking of moving some IT offices to LATAM. Any advice/ pros and cons?Also any recruiting agencies you will work with? 

I’ve worked with OneTree, based in Seattle, for IT staff in Uruguay and Bolivia.  They worked out well and were accommodating to all my security requirements.  It’s important to validate that your customer contracts allow you to outsource those services outside of the country.  There may also be government-based limitations (e.g ITAR in U.S.) depending on the work you do.   It’s important to understand the economics, work culture and holidays of any country you go to.  I found it easier and more secure to provide them with equipment/laptops.  Although you need to nuke them remotely at the end of contract as getting them back is unlikely or way too costly.
