The Best Places to Retire Overseas
The best places to retire overseas are
destinations that offer the best value for your time and money.
In these destinations your money goes a lot farther and
your quality of life can be a lot
better than in your home country.
We make videos about what it’s like
to live in these destinations.
With our videos you will know
if a destination is right for you, before you go!
In Latin America, Nicaragua and Ecuador have the best values.
In Nicaragua, the top destinations are Granada and San Juan del Sur.
In Ecuador, the top destination is Cuenca.
San Juan del Sur
In these places, with the income from an average pension or social security check,
you can eat out often and have a maid. If you have more income,
you can live extremely well.
And it’s not just about money. Each of these destinations has:
- A year-round spring or summer climate
- A lower crime rate than the USA
- All the western comforts
- An authentic culture
- Friendly local people
- Excellent and inexpensive medical care
- High-speed internet and cable or satellite TV
- An established English-speaking expat community
- Many things to do, including cultural, educational, and outdoor activities
But what is it really like to live in Cuenca? Or Granada or San Juan del Sur? Or any other destination in the developing world?
How often does the electricity go out? Can you drink the water? Will you be able to make friends there? Will you be happy there?
You could read about places to retire and view photos and watch amateur videos from now to forever trying to decide where you would be happy. But there’s a better way!
If we’ve made a video about a destination that interests you, now you can quickly and easily find out if it is right for you, for these reasons:
No compensation is ever given or received from any business or person appearing in a Live or Retire Overseas video… so you get only unbiased information.
Information You Can Trust
You get the most trustworthy information you can get anywhere about what it’s really like to live in a destination… from expats who actually live there.
No Real Estate Pitches
Because it’s wiser to rent and learn the local market before you invest or buy any real estate in the developing world… there is usually no MLS.
With our videos you get honest unbiased answers to the following questions from a variety of expats who live in a destination:
- How is the food?
- How is the shopping?
- What is the cost of living?
- How is the health care, and what does it cost?
- Do you need to know the language?
- Are you concerned about safety?
- Do you need a car?
- What is there to do there?
- Where do you meet people?
- What is the English-speaking community like?
- How friendly are the locals?
- Where do you eat and drink, and what does it cost?
- What are the pros and cons of living or retiring there?
- And much more!
You’ll see where to stay when you arrive, where to eat, where to shop, what to do and see, and where to meet people.
The biggest cost of finding your best place to retire overseas can be visiting all the places that interest you. That’s fine if you can afford it, but it isn’t necessary. Our videos are practically like being there — or even better if you don’t easily meet and talk to new people about what it’s like to live where they live.
