Mexico - International Living's Top Retirement Haven 2017
 
04:58
The New Year means “Auld Lang Syne,” a new set of resolutions…and the publication of International Living’s latest Annual Global Retirement Index. And this year the top spot goes to Mexico, our North American neighbor to the south. Every year International Living’s in-house experts and worldwide network of correspondents compile data on a growing number of countries—24 for this year’s index. We rate cost of living, real estate, climate, healthcare, and a whole host of other factors to find the most affordable, convenient, and comfortable countries in which to retire abroad. Mexico always features among our top 10 destinations in the Index, and usually among our top five. It’s home to more North American expats than any other country in the world. And no wonder. Mexico offers a diverse geography, with everything from white-sand beaches to high-mountain colonial cities. Its climate ranges from moist, tropical heat to dry desert and everything in between. It is rich in casual beach towns, vibrant Spanish-colonial cities, and small country villages. Low prices, friendly people, and a laidback lifestyle are also found here… And today, with the Mexican peso at historic lows against the U.S. dollar, Mexico is more affordable than it’s been in years. Well over a million U.S. and Canadian expats are estimated to live in Mexico already, either full- or part-time. As a result, you’ll find a plethora of expat havens in Mexico…places where you can settle in easily and make yourself at home. To learn more about what Mexico, as well as our other top retirement destinations, can offer you, as well as how to receive your free Global Retirement Index 2017 report, see here: https://internationalliving.com/2017/01/the-best-places-to-retire/

Costa Rica Vs Panama: Which Country is Best for You? - International living
 
02:15
Costa Rica Versus Panama: Which Country is Best for You? http://internationalliving.com/2013/11/costa-rica-panama-dan-tries-decide/ My wife, Suzan Haskins, and I were married in Costa Rica 14 years ago and have been back for business and pleasure almost every year since. We also lived in Panama in 2006 and, like Costa Rica, have returned nearly every year for International Living events, editorial trips, and vacations. So it is inevitable that IL readers, subscribers, and event attendees ask...and ask often...which country we prefer. That's when we give our "Blunt Instrument" answer. Trying to compare the relative merits of entire countries as expat destinations is kind of like cracking peanuts with a baseball bat. You can do it, but the results aren't the most useful or easy to digest. Of course, there are some obvious, overarching differences that you can swing a bat at. Panama's official currency is the U.S. dollar and it has had a significant expat population for more than 100 years thanks to the Panama Canal. Costa Rica has no standing army and has a clear national policy of promoting environmental awareness and tourism. Both countries have Pacific and Caribbean coastlines. Both have towns ranging from large metropolitan shopping and entertainment meccas to tiny upland and seaside villages. Both have cooler highland destinations and tropical coastal spots where you'll find concentrations of expats. But which country is better? Time to put down the bat. You need a finer tool for teasing out the particular differences between, say, the beach community of Coronado in Panama and the beach community of Jaco in Costa Rica—or between the cool uplands of Panama's popular expat destination of Boquete or Volcan and the cool uplands of Costa Rica's popular expat destination of San Ramon or the Arenal area. What is that finer tool? Most often, it's the particular likes and dislikes of the person asking the question in the first place. It usually goes something like this. Someone asks: "So which is better, Panama or Costa Rica?" We answer: "Are you looking for beach, highland, city, or country? Is cost of living incredibly important to you or not so much? Is proximity to the best health care a deal breaker, or does it matter to you at this point? Do you care how many other expats you have around, or do you never want to see another gringo again? How long a drive do you want to make to get a flight out?" And that's when people start clarifying their own goals and refining their own perspective of what they're really looking for in a retirement or second home destination. They put down the "Panama vs. Costa Rica" bat and pick up the magnifying glass of Grecia vs. El Valle or Panama City vs. San Jose and even individual neighborhoods like Marbella vs. Santa Ana. View all these places from 50,000 feet and you can't tell them apart... From that high up they're all just Panama or Costa Rica. But dial in and get your boots on the ground and you'll see the differences and similarities that become significant to you personally. By all means take a swing at "Panama vs. Costa Rica"—but be ready to trade the bat for a magnifying glass as soon as you figure out exactly what kind of weather, scenery, population, infrastructure, cost of living, and real estate prices make up your ideal location. There are specific places in both countries that tick most of our boxes and where Suzan and I could happily live. But to be honest, as the years go by it matters less and less to us what country these specific locations are in. Politics and policies change so fast in today's world that, at this point, all we ask of entire countries is that they be relatively stable and freedom loving, be relatively easy to enter and exit, have relatively easy bureaucracies to navigate, have relatively good health care available somewhere, and have relatively beautiful and affordable places like Arenal and Boquete and Coronado and Nosara and Pedasi and Uvita and all those other incredible places in them. Fortunately, Panama and Costa Rica both fit the bill nicely, which means Suzan and I don't have to have a favorite...we can love them both. Is that cheating?

Dan Prescher for International Living Magazine - International Living InternationalLiving.com Hi, Dan Prescher here. You know, for more than 30 years now, International Living has been researching and writing about how you can live a happier, healthier, more enjoyable life in some of the most beautiful places on earth for less... and I'm talking much, much less... than you're paying right now. I know... it sounds like a dream. But I can tell you from personal experience that this dream is real. I've been living and working abroad for a decade now in places like Panama, Belize, Argentina, Mexico... in fact, I'm talking to you now from Cotacachi, Ecuador, a little town high up in the Andes Mountains where my wife, Suzan Haskins, and I spend the summers. And it's all thanks to International Living and, most importantly, to International Living magazine. It was International Living magazine that first got me and Suzan thinking outside the box... thinking about the possibility of living someplace that was warm year around... someplace where the food was fresh, the air was clean, the cost of living was low, property was affordable... someplace where we could have the good things in life, including great health care, for a price that would let us relax and enjoy life instead of working our fingers to the bone each day just to stay afloat. In fact, we've actually cut our cost of living in half... and cut our health care costs by two thirds... just by living outside the U.S. And we learned how to do it, and do it right, thanks to International Living magazine. International Living magazine is a monthly publication packed with information on how you can make that same dream come true for yourself. Its 40, full-color pages are full of stories from people like me and Suzan... people who are living the overseas dream right now. You'll read about the exotic locations these people now call home. You'll find out their tips and tricks, and you'll benefit from their experience. You'll learn what works... and what doesn't work... straight from the mouths of people... people just like you... who are living their overseas dreams right now, in real life. And that's not all... International Living magazine will also keep you up to date on changing economic conditions around the world that are opening up even more opportunities for living, working, and investing abroad... opportunities the mainstream media rarely covers... opportunities that can have a direct, positive effect on your bottom line no matter where in the world you choose to live. And International Living magazine does all this, every month, for a price that is almost unbelievable considering the amount of current, actionable information you'll find in each issue. It has to be one of the best information and entertainment bargains available today. But you won't find it on newsstands. International Living magazine is delivered to your door and posted on our website each month... directly from us and our writers, editors, and correspondents around the world... to you. It's that simple. Try International Living magazine for yourself. You have nothing to lose, especially since there's an iron-clad, no-questions-asked, money-back guarantee if you're not completely satisfied. Just go to internationalliving.com/magazine to find out how easy it is to subscribe. But I warn you... once you start reading about all the possibilities out there for a happier, healthier, more enjoyable life at a fraction of what you're paying now... you may actually end up in one of those warm, beautiful, affordable places, just like Suzan and I did. Believe me... once you start reading International Living magazine, you'll start to see that it's more possible, more practical, and more affordable than you ever imagined. Thanks for listening. Remember, go to internationalliving.com/magazine to start getting International Living magazine for yourself right now, and see if your world doesn't change... for the better.

Costa Rica: Samara, Popular Beach Destination - International Living

Samara, Costa Rica: A Popular Weekend Beach Destination - International Living Get your free report on Costa Rica here: http://www1.internationalliving.com/sem/country/costa-rica/youtube/gen-org.html This video shows International Living editor Dan Prescher on the beach in Samara. This stretch of Costa Rica's Pacific coast is known for beautiful beaches and good surfing. The town of Samara has more action than the nearby Nosara because, unlike Nosara, the road is paved all the way down from the highway, making it a more popular weekend beach destination for Ticos as well as a well-known haunt for surfers and foreign vacationers. http://internationalliving.com/2012/07/playa-samara-costa-rica-fishing-village-life/ But "popular" doesn't seem to translate into crowded... at least not on this Tuesday during high season. This is a tiny town by almost any standard, and we wandered the streets without running into a crowd of any kind, anywhere. Suzan and Dan are in Costa Rica on a scouting trip for International Living. You can read all about their trip in an upcoming issue of International Living magazine.

The Cost of Living in Lake Chapala, Mexico - International Living Sign up for International Living's free daily postcards and get your FREE REPORT HERE: http://www1.internationalliving.com/sem/country/mexico/youtube/gen-org.html Internationalliving.com's Mexico editor Glynna Prentice talks about the cost of living in Lake Chapala, Mexico. Lake Chapala, located in central Mexico, is an affordable expat haven that is one of the easiest places to retire abroad, thanks to thousands of English-speaking expats and US-style amenities. You can buy condos here in the low $100,000s or rent at monthly rates starting at about $700. Glynna also talks about the low health care costs in the area. U.S. and Canadian expats have been attracted to the Lake Chapala area for decades. Ajijic, Chapala, Jocotepec, San Antonio, and San Juan Cosalá are lakeside villages with cobblestone streets, colonial architecture, and little crime. It's a part of the world where it's easy to afford a cook, a maid, and a gardener. http://internationalliving.com/2010/12/lake-chapala-u-s-amenities-but-with-mexicos-low-cost-of-living/ Chapala is about a mile high—roughly the same as Denver—and the climate is delightful. January is the coolest month around Lake Chapala, with temperatures reaching about 71° F in the daytime and cooling off to about 52° F at night. May is the warmest month with highs of 84° F and lows of 62° F. Guadalajara, a city of more than five million residents, is only 45 minutes away by car. Ajijic and Chapala are havens for artists and writers. Expats and locals often get together on Wednesdays when Ajijic's huge outdoor market is open. It's a great place to shop for hand-made carvings and jewelry, not to mention clothes, flowers, fruits, vegetables, cooked food, and household items.

It's fresh off the press, and here's the lineup... Our cover story this month is from Jessica Ramesch, our on-the-ground expert in one of the most popular retirement destinations on earth, Panama. In her feature story, Jessica explores the many neighborhoods of Panama City. She gives us an insider's look outside the city's famous downtown areas... places like Bella Vista, San Francisco, Costa Del Este, and other great spots where expats have found gracious living at great prices. http://internationalliving.com/2011/03/great-panama-city-neighborhoods/ Also in the March issue, Len Galvin explores another expat and retiree favorite... Belize. But it's a part of Belize that often gets overlooked. The Cayo district is one of the most fertile parts of this tropical English-speaking country, a huge agricultural center, and its capital of San Ignacio is a bustling little place full of color and fun. Len shines the spotlight on the Cayo and drops in on a few expats living the dream life there right now in his article. Our Entrepreneur Profile in the March issue is the amazing story of a woman who took her dream deep into the jungles of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula and made it come true from the ground up. Suzan Haskins shares the story of Sandra Dayton, who started a tour company on Mexico's Caribbean coast, but soon fell in love with the people of the nearby jungle and their way of life... especially the art of Mayan massage. The Jungle Spa now operates as a non-profit organization and all income goes to the women who provide the treatments. I've been worked over by the gals at the Jungle Spa myself, and it was a memorable experience. Suzan tells you the whole story in her March issue article.

March 28 -- Roving South American Editor Lee Harrison writes in from Colombia to say that, if he had to pick just one city for year-round living there, he'd have to recommend Medellín. Despite the old stereotypes, Lee says today's Medellín is modern and cosmopolitan...clean and safe. And it's also a great buy right now, like high-end condos in good neighborhoods starting at just $80,000, and large luxury penthouses going for under $150,000. Find out more about this Medellin in Lee's March 28 postcard. http://internationalliving.com/2011/10/colonial-property-bargains-in-latin-america/ March 29 -- Kent Zimmerman shares the benefit of his extensive expat experience -- including a lot of time in one of the highest-rated expat havens in the world, Cuenca, Ecuador -- with some hard-won advice on eight mistakes to avoid when you move overseas. One mistake to avoid... don't assume that your first move will be your last... but you may be surprised by the reason. Find out why, and find out how to avoid the rest of the mistakes on Kent's list, in his March 29 postcard. March 30 -- Ronan McMahon of Pathfinder Real Estate writes in from Costa Rica's Talamanca mountains, where you get magnificent views of the Caribbean and the surrounding mountains and valleys. He says the finest real estate project in the region is a diverse site, with virgin rainforest, five rivers, two waterfalls, and gently rolling hills. Not to mention lots that range in size up to almost 2.5 acres but can be had for just $52,000... Ronan tells you how in his March 30 postcard. March 31 -- Pathfinder Real Estate's Margaret Summerfield writes in from what she calls the jewel in Nicagragua's crown... the little city of Granada. It's a beautiful, bewitching place, says Margaret, and if your dream of an overseas property involves an old colonial home, you'll get more for your money in Granada. For example, a very spacious one-bed, one-bath home with beautiful tile floors, high ceilings, and an internal courtyard garden, just three blocks from the central park -- furniture and appliances included -- listing at just $170,000. April 1 -- It was April Fool's day, but IL's financial expert Chris Hunter wasn't fooling when he said that losing money hurts... no fun at all. And if you're losing it because you're overexposed to the U.S. dollar, it's particularly painful... but Chris know the three best "anti-dollar" currencies to own right now... currencies that can diversify you out of your pain. Find out what they are in Chris' April 1 postcard. April 2 -- International Living Magazine editor Eoin Bassett asks what if you could collect your paycheck from the beach? Or from the terrace of a café in Rome? Or both? What if you could spend six months living la dolce vita and the rest of the year working on your tan? Eoin says you don't have to go to an office in the U.S. or Canada to maintain a respectable and well-paid career. With modern technology you can make a living from anywhere in the world. And in the April issue of International Living magazine, we show you how. Find out what else is waiting for you in the April issue of International Living magazine.

The World's Top Retirement Havens in 2011 - International Living

The World's Top Retirement Havens in 2011 - International Living Get your free report on the world's top retirement havens here: http://www1.internationalliving.com/sem/retirement/retirement-index-2011/youtube/org.html If you subscribe to International Living magazine, you know that September is the month we publish our annual Global Retirement Index. This is the big one... the one people wait all year to see. International Living editors use all the data we can get our hands on, including on-the-ground input from our staff members, correspondents, contributing editors, and experts around the world, to rank the top places in the world to retire. It's a long process, and we try to refine our approach each year as economies, political situations, and technologies change. This year we rated 23 countries in categories such as real estate prices, cost of living, culture, health care, special retiree benefits, infrastructure, safety, stability, climate... like I said, it's a big job, but we think we've come up with something that can really help you if you're thinking about your options for retiring abroad. And if you aren't, you should be, because there are some incredibly nice... and affordable... places out there that can help you get the retirement you always wanted, even in these uncertain economic times. International Living has been covering this beat for more than 30 years, and each Global Retirement Index we put together just gets more interesting. I'll give you a little example... what do you think are the top five best places to retire on this year's Index? http://internationalliving.com/2011/08/the-worlds-best-retirement-haven/ 5. I'll start with number 5 -- New Zealand. That's right, land of the Kiwis. Wine festivals, whale-watching, concerts in the park...mile after mile of coastal walks...geysers, glaciers, mountains. For those who love uncrowded places and a temperate climate, English-speaking New Zealand is one of the world's most livable countries...and one of the most scenic. 4. Coming in at number 4 is Spain, and if you thought Latin America had the corner on great weather and old world charm, you should see where it all came from to begin with. Spain is an ever-popular retirement destination for Europeans, so why not Americans, Canadians, and everybody else? Especially considering those Mediterranean beaches with their 320+ days of sunshine each year. 3. The focus comes closer to home with our number three pick, Panama... always a heavy hitter in our annual Global Retirement Index thanks to its economic and political stability. Panama's currency is the U.S. dollar, and earns the top spot in the retirement-benefits category due to its pensionado program. Conceived to secure discounts for Panama's senior citizens—savings on everything from surgery to movie tickets—the program is open to foreigners and even grants them residency. 2. Coming in at number two on this year's Global Retirement Index is Mexico, the country that is home to more U.S. and Canadian expats than any other country... and for good reasons. White sand beaches and turquoise seas, winding, cobblestone streets and fountain-filled plazas...towering ruins left by ancient civilizations... Mexico is rich in romance But Mexico can also cost you up to 40% less than what you'd pay in the U.S. for a similar lifestyle. It's also lived at a slower, more gracious pace. And that just the lifestyle so many of us are looking for. 1. And now, drum roll please, our #1 retirement haven for 2011, and if you've been following the Global Retirement Index for the past few years, you already know what it is. Ecuador puts it all together... incredible weather, majestic beaches, towering mountains, bustling cities, sleepy villages... all at prices that make Ecuador one of the most affordable places in the world to live and still enjoy safety, good infrastructure, and quality health care. From Quito to Cuenca, from Vicabamba to Otavalo, there is a town, a climate, and a culture to match every taste. In fact, a couple can live well in Ecuador on as little as $600 a month. I hope this has given you some idea what waits for you in this year's Global Retirement Index. Click here to get your free report on the World's Top Retirement Havens in 2011: http://www1.internationalliving.com/sem/retirement/retirement-index-2011/youtube/org.html Your dream retirement doesn't have to be just a dream... take a look at what's waiting for you in the 2011 International Living Global Retirement Index.

International Living Magazine - Please send me to Panama.
 
02:52
Please vote for me in this contest for an expenses paid test-drive of a dream retirement in Panama. I am a recovered Chicago (second City), Santa Fe (the City Different), California Dreamer. I have been on the road for the last seven months: Cape Verde, Africa, Brasilia, Colombia and I had planned to stop in Costa Rica and Panama anyway and will do 3 Dances of Universal Peace Retreats. The contest is with International Living Magazine and will give the most voted for video a month in Panama, plus $1500 plus airfare for two...except I will probably already be in the neighborhood. The idea is to report on retirement destinations in Panama. My video was a last minute submission deadline Monday midnight. The video is not so much about me or retirement but promoting and telling the non Latin world about Argentinian, Facundo Cabral's song: " I'm not from here....No soy de aqui..". Oh would that we were more tied to each other, regardless of where we are from. Less tied to country and nationality and meaningless (but contentious) borders. Cabral sings of the universal, of the simple human joys of experiencing life and relationships regardless of our "documents", regardless of whether we are "official or unofficial", "documented or undocmented", regardless of whether we have "papers", an implanted chip, dog tags or a national ID, or multiple passports. A vote for me is a vote for my Estonian, German, American, Afro-Brazilian, Hispanic triadic, triune, tri-cerebral, whole-brained, holistic, holographic perspective and worldview.

IL Free Daily Postcard Wrap Up - International Living

IL Free Daily Postcard Wrap Up - International Living Get your free report on Panama here: http://www1.internationalliving.com/sem/country/panama/youtube/gen-org.html Dan Prescher reports from Ecuador with your weekly wrap-up of International Living postcards for the week ending March 5. Ever had the itch to travel but found that household bills meant you had to put your vacation plans on hold? In his postcard on March 1, Darius Fisher says he has a way to pay for that well-deserved break upfront and still cover the cost of mortgage payments or rent back home. He knows someone who used an online marketplace website to rent her apartment during her trip to Mexico, and Darius says you can do it, too. Find out how in his postcard. International Living magazine editor Eoin Bassett gives us an inside look at one of the stories in the March issue of IL magazine—Jessica Ramesch, IL's Panama editor, reveals her favorite Panama City neighborhoods—the ones most worthy of your attention... especially if you're dreaming of an airy, spacious condo with big picture windows and a balcony overlooking the sea. That's just the tip of the iceberg... Eoin gives you the rundown of what else you'll read in the IL magazine this month in his postcard. http://internationalliving.com/2010/10/top-five-places-to-meet-expats-in-panama-city/ Jessica Ramesch is back with a look outside Panama's busy capital, where you can find a largely undiscovered paradise overlooking the Pacific. Anyone looking to live in Panama on next to nothing can find homes for as little as $35,000 here. It's a little rough, a little isolated... and that's exactly what some folks are looking for. If you're looking for a bit of Panama's tropical paradise at rock-bottom prices, Jessica will tell you exactly where to look in her March 3 postcard. Margaret Summerfield of Pathfinder Real Estate lives in what she feels is the Panama City neighborhood with the most lifestyle and investment potential... the historic Casco Viejo area. She says this little peninsula of land is packed with historic buildings, and she loves the regular music and art festivals and the fact that it feels like a real neighborhood. She also has three important property buying tips that will help you make the right deal if Casco Viejo appeals to you. Our man in South America, Lee Harrison, writes in with a postcard from Salta, Argentina. He says this Andean mountain town retains its Spanish colonial character without sacrificing high-grade infrastructure like drinkable water right out of the tap. It also has a symphony, art museum, theater... all the cultural amenities you could want... yet you can live here on a fraction of what it costs in Buenos Aires (you could buy a comfortable apartment in downtown Salta for less than $75,000, for example). Lee tells you more about this affordable Andean getaway in his March 5 postcard. That's it from me for this week.

On February 14, at the request of International Living postcard editor Len Galvin, Margot Brown compares and contrasts her home on Belize's Caye Caulker with its nearby and more famous neighbor, Ambergris Caye. She says she's being as impartial as she can be... and I think you might agree after you read her postcard. Our resident Panama expert, Jessica Ramesch, says your first impression of Panama City might be one of noise and bustling activity...a city of steel and concrete. But after a few days you'll realize there is more than meets the eye... you can have tropical rainforest hikes...Bayside morning walks...and dinners in a palm-studded marina filled with yachts and a cruise ship or two. All without leaving the city. There's even more... and Jessica tells you all about it in her postcard. http://internationalliving.com/2010/05/worlds-healthiest-places-to-live-2010/ International Living magazine editor Eoin Bassett tells us about the healthiest country in the world. It's a country that might surprise you since it places such an emphasis on delicious food, savory meat dishes, creamy sauces, delicate cakes, sweets and pastries, fine wines and barrel-aged brandy. But the low cost of health insurance and the superb quality of care puts this country at the top of the International Living Quality of Life index for 2011. Find out where it is in Eoin's postcard. Ronan McMahon of Pathfinder Real Estate takes us to what he calls the one place to buy in Brazil. Ronan says the Path of Progress is rolling into Iracema, and this beach in the #1 tourist destination for Brazil's swelling middle class is about to explode. Ronan says it's a nearly perfect storm of opportunity, and he gives you the details in his February 17 postcard. Ronan continues the sage of Iracema with a visit to Praia do Futuro, Fortaleza's finest and most popular beach. But today Ronan is looking at the rental side of the equation...how much you might expect to garner from a unit along this soon-to-pop real estate market, especially along one of the last developable stretches in town. Find out more in Ronan's postcard. On February 19, Ronan completes the story of the potential that lies along Fortaleza's sun-washed city beaches. He says it really doesn't make any difference what you want to do with a properly located unit here... rent it long term, rent it short term, or just wait for it to appreciate... the conditions are ripe thanks to a combination of factors that Ronan explains in detail in his postcard. That's it from me for this week.

Uruguay: Why I Moved Here - International Living
 
01:27
Why I Moved to Uruguay - International Living http://internationalliving.com/2013/07/why-i-moved-to-uruguay/ It was probably just a matter of time before it happened to me. Real estate agents who take a vacation after going too long without one can get carried away. They may return with a tattoo, a vision-quest name, or a new mate they met at a blackjack table. Me? I returned telling everyone I was moving to the South American country of Uruguay. I initially went from Washington State, where I lived, for a long needed getaway and to investigate the potential for real estate referrals and investment. But while I was in Uruguay I experienced some unexpected surprises. Like in Montevideo, Uruguay's capital. It has Spanish influences and native traditions—as I expected to find in a Latin America city. But it also has neoclassic architecture and strong Italian influences, which I didn't expect. Uruguayans meet for pizza, greet each other with a kiss on the cheek, and speak Spanish with an Italian-like intonation. There is even opera. Uruguay's southern coast is dotted with beach towns that fill up with vacationers in the summer. I spent time in Punta del Este, the largest beach resort in Uruguay. Punta del Este is like a buffet of things I like. There is natural beauty, surfing, great places to run and cycle, and interesting people to meet. It has a relaxed elegance that reminds me of Santa Barbara. Read more here and get a free report on Uruguay: http://internationalliving.com/countries/uruguay/

Mexico: Cost of Living in San Miguel de Allende - International Living

Cost of Living in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico - International Living Get your free report on Mexico here: http://www1.internationalliving.com/sem/country/mexico/youtube/gen-org.html Internationalliving.com editor Glynna Prentice discusses the cost of living in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. San Miguel de Allende is one of Mexico's prettiest colonial towns and an expat favorite. But it doesn't have to be expensive. You can find properties there now starting at about $150,000, and enjoy San Miguel's vibrant atmosphere and many amenities. And your cost of living in San Miguel will be low, too. In San Miguel de Allende you can rent a two-bedroom apartment with one or two bathrooms for about $400 a week. Day-to-day living expenses are about 30% to 40% less than you'd pay in a supermarket back home and fresh fruit and vegetables are a lot cheaper. http://internationalliving.com/2011/06/a-great-and-affordable-lifestyle-in-san-miguel-de-allende-mexico/ Make sure to visit the Tuesday market, where you can find anything from snacks to bicycle parts. Or shop for crafts at the Mercado de Artesanías or dozens of other shops that line the cobbled streets of San Miguel. Eating out at a restaurant will cost you a few dollars for breakfast. And the menu of the day for lunch costs about $10 to $15. There are sound reasons to live in San Miguel de Allende—rich culture, friendly population, and a delightful climate, though it can get a bit chilly in winter. Quite simply, it is one of the loveliest small cities in Mexico. Learn more about Mexico and other countries in our daily postcard e-letter.

Postcard Wrap-up - International Living http://internationalliving.com/2010/09/ils-weekly-wrap-up-video-the-best-of-sicily-colombias-caribbean/ On Monday, August 30, Lee Harrison writes in to tell us about the warm weather, sandy beaches, and swaying palms of Colombia's Caribbean hideaway of Santa Marta, where you can still buy a three-bedroom apartment near the beach for less than $57,000. It's Caribbean lifestyle without the high prices, and Lee fills you in. Read his postcard to find out more. On Tuesday, expat Hilary Arnold says that she's found what she's looking for... hot summers, small-town friendliness and safety, a place by the sea with a Mediterranean lifestyle. She found it all in a small town in Sicily... she'll tell you exactly where and what her new life is like in her postcard. On Wednesday, Glynna Prentice says she tried to do it all in Oaxaca, Mexico during her week of exploration there... take in all the historic architecture, visit the nearby Zopotec ruins, see the local expert weavers, learn to make the region's famous mole sauce... but she says she barely scratched the surface. There is so much to do in this historic Mexican cultural center that Glynna is already planning to go back. Find out what she liked most about Oaxaco in her postcard. http://internationalliving.com/2012/03/live-better-for-less-overseas/ On Thursday the managing editor of International Living magazine, Eoin Bassett, wrote to explain how we're constantly on the look out for the countries around the world where you can live cheaper, enjoy better weather, pay less tax, be healthier, happier... where you can start a new life, start a business, retire. Then, every September in the IL magazine, we rank and rate the top countries in the world for retirement. If you haven't gotten your issue yet, read Eoin's postcard to find out more about our Annual Global Retirement Index. On Friday, the lovely and talented Suzan Haskins paints a picture of what it's like to live in the country that International Living has picked as the #1 retirement destination in the world in 2010. It's a first-hand story, because Suzan lives there herself, so you might already have some idea where Suzan is posting from... if you don't, you can find out in her postcard. And on Saturday, International Living editorial director Len Galvin puts the speculation to rest and reveals the place Suzan wrote about...International Living's top pick for the best retirement country on the planet, where you can get a four-course lunch for $2, a taxi ride for a dollar, stay in a nice hotel for less than $20...or get a 30-minute massage for $15. That's it from me for this week. All these free postcards and more are on the Internationalliving.com website, and don't forget to visit the International Living Facebook page.

Costa Rica: A Look at Life in San Jose - International Living
 
02:23
A Look at Life in San Jose, Costa Rica - International Living http://internationalliving.com/2013/11/benefits-living-san-jose-costa-rica/ I have a pretty standard morning routine. I'm awakened very early by roosters but stay in bed for a while as the sunrise filters into the bedroom. I start the coffee, open the sliding doors, step out to my deck, and look down into the valley below. I usually see hummingbirds buzzing around my flowers, sometimes a blue-crowned mot-mot. Some mornings one of my neighbors, a farmer, has been up even earlier to let his cow and oxen graze in the vacant lot next door. I'm not out in the country or living on a farm. I'm in the middle of the largest urban area in Costa Rica, the capital, San Jose, founded in 1738. Learn more about Costa Rica and other countries in our daily postcard e-letter.

Weekly E-Letter/Postcard Wrapup with Dan Prescher - International Living www.internationalLiving.com Dan Prescher in Merida, Mexico, with your wrapup of InternationalLiving.com free e-letters for the week ending October 2, 2010. All these postcard can be read in their entirety on the website at www.internationalliving.com. September 28 -- Glynna Prentice tells us about two of her favorite cities in Mexico that are what she calls "two-for-one" bargains: mountain cities with temperate climates that are also close to the beach. They can be tailor-made for folks who can't decide between life on the beach or life in the mountains—because with these cities you don't have to choose. Find out which of these "two for one" cities Glynna has discovered in her September 28 e-letter. September 29 -- Bob Bauman reminds us that once only the wealthiest investors could benefit from having an offshore bank account. Now, after dramatic changes in international banking and communications you can make a quick and inexpensive entry into the world of foreign-investment opportunities. A foreign bank account can be an integral tool in a two-part offshore wealth strategy. Bob outlines this powerful strategy for you in his September 29 e-letter. September 30 -- Chris Hunter says that U.S. stocks did investors very well over most of the last 30 years. But the next 30 belong to those who can harness the power of the rise of the new consumer. Just last week, news broke that 1,408 investors, analysts and traders in a Bloomberg survey rated the U.S. fourth for potential returns over the next year. Guess which countries rank first? Chris tells you and shares ideas on how you can benefit in his September 30 e-letter. October 1 -- International Living magazine editor Eoin Bassett tells us about the town where everything wonderful about Mexico meets in one place. A must-visit destination if you're looking for ancient cities, grand colonial splendor, smiling locals, artisan workshops, colorful markets, great food...all at affordable prices. It's the lead story of the October issue of International Living magazine... Eoin tells us about what else the magazine has in store in his October 1 e-letter. http://internationalliving.com/countries/mexico/one-million/ October 2 -- Ronan McMahon tells us how to get in front of the Path of Progress for fun and profit. You're looking for anything that improves the accessibility of a piece of real estate... roads, bridges, airports, air and rail routes. Also, anything that improves amenities in an area—like major resorts, theme parks and conference centers. Ronan tells you some specific places to look for this upside potential in his October 2 e-letter.
Panama: Christmas Shopping in Panama City - International Living

Christmas Shopping in Panama City, Jessica Ramesch - International Living http://internationalliving.com/2010/10/christmas-in-panama-holiday-fun-for-expats/ InternationalLiving.com Panama Correspondent Jessica Ramesch shows us her favorite places to shop for Christmas in Panama City...a quick glimpse of the variety available at some special stores. If you're from a colder climate, sunshine and beach weather may not scream "holiday season" to you. But over the past five years, I've learned that the Christmas season in Panama can be a truly magical time. In December, the rainy season is finally over, the sun is shining and everyone seems to be on their way to the beach...but there's no doubt that it's Christmas time. Shops are all decked out by mid-October and the radio stations break out the holiday tunes soon after. Families then add to the holiday feel by dressing up their homes inside and out. For the huge Catholic population, the biggest feast of the holiday season in Panama is on December 24—or Nochebuena. Typical fare is often a mix of Latin and gringo traditions...turkey and ham, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and fruitcake may all be on the table. http://internationalliving.com/2010/11/holiday-shopping-overseas/ But the typical table will also include arroz con guandu and tamales. The former is a flavorful, fragrant rice and pigeon peas dish, often infused with fresh coconut, while tamales are soft masses of fresh, sweet corn filled with a savory mixture of chicken, olives and raisins. Panama is a vast melting pot...and while each of Panama's international communities has its own way of commemorating the holiday season, some traditions are considered universal. If you're spending Christmas in Panama City, ask your new friends to take you to Bethlehem...er, that is, Bethlehem Street. Calle Belem residents take the name seriously, and outdo themselves every year with lights and decorations. In mid-December, it's not uncommon to see caravans of cars in this neighborhood, happy kids ooh-ing and ah-ing at the windows. Another big pre-Christmas treat is Panama City's Christmas parade, which usually takes place a week or two before Christmas. The elaborate event features beautiful floats, holiday music and throngs of cheerful families. I love watching the school marching bands; everyone looks dapper in red and white costumes and...best of all...bright Panamanian smiles. After the parade, I come home for a Christmas-y end to the day. Walking into my cozy Panamanian apartment, the scent of my Christmas pine greets me. Hot chocolate, pecan pie, Vince Guaraldi, and pumpkin spice candles remind me of Christmas in Oregon. I usually invite my expat friends over and we revel in the sounds and smells of the season. Enjoying the best of both worlds...a Christmas both local and expat...I feel lucky indeed. Learn more about Panama and other countries in our daily postcard e-letter and get a free report on Panama.

Costa Rica: Grecia Tour - International Living
 
02:49
http://internationalliving.com/countries/costa-rica Video Tour of Grecia, Costa Rica In the heart of Costa Rica's Central Valley is Grecia, a charming town of about 16,000. Like the rest of the Central Valley, Grecia has an ideal spring-like climate and enjoys quick access to the capital of Costa Rica, San José. There you can find the best medical care and shopping in the country, as well as the main international airport. Life in Grecia is relaxed and features quiet rural areas outside a bustling city center. That slower pace of life has attracted many expats, as have the excellent mountain and valley views from homes on the hills and ridges surrounding the town. Valley-view homes with North American amenities in Grecia communities like El Cajon or San Isidro can be found for less than $150,000. In this video, International Living Costa Rica editor Jason Holland gives a tour of Grecia's city center and the surrounding area, which includes small villages and agricultural areas.

Salta: Argentina's Best Preserved Colonial City - International Living Get your FREE report on Latin America here: http://www1.internationalliving.com/sem/country/latin-america/youtube/gen-org.php See the video from International Living editor Lee Harrison of the colonial city of Salta as seen from the final hill on Argentina's scenic Route Nine. The footage shows the valley spreading out for miles into the distance. Salta is widely-known as Argentina's best-preserved colonial city. http://internationalliving.com/2011/03/salta-argentina-a-colonial-city-with-small-town-appeal/ Unlike faraway Buenos Aires, Salta in many ways resembles other Spanish Colonial cities found in the Andes, with its food, customs and ethnic mix. But unlike most of these cities, it boasts a high-grade infrastructure (with drinkable water), and a state of cleanliness and preservation that's hard to find. You can read Lee's full report on Salta in the upcoming March issue of International Living magazine (www.internationalliving.com).
