7 more years and I'm done... I want to enjoy my retirement fishing and duck hunting, I have a decent savings where I can live like a king in several other countries or comfortably here in the good'ol USA. Any info, experience or inside knowledge would be appreciated. First thing on the list is good medical, I don't want to be scene by some doctor in a mudhut  whose last patient was a goat...

Panama is back on the screen; great ex-pat community and the mountains are still very affordable.  Hondo - nope.  Costa - yes, but gotten very expensive;  some islands it's OK.  South America looking good.

Costa Rica costs have risen dramatically, could be that ship has sailed. I don't see how to get around the medical issue, means find something here. Coastal Maine? Too cold? Texas, Gulf Coast, a steam bath. Carolina's, both coastal areas are almost full. I'm staying put in coastal NJ, comfortable here and haven't found anywhere else I'd like to live. Been to a lot of places I like, but not to live.

Retirement soon for me but in this country. 

A good financial advisor is a must.

Great advice but in all reality your going to do what you want to do with your money no matter who tells you how you should spend it..

One thi g on the medical. A lot of other countries require cash in order to get any medical treatment

Well depending on any health issues you may have before retirement it should be affordable depending on the country, no?

I had a house built on the East Cape of Baja in 2014. Have been spending winter/spring down there the 3 of the last 4 years. The medical is very good in Cabo, although it's 2hrs from where I'm at.

Costa Rica has probably the most stable Latin American govt.

Fishing on the pacific side is hard to beat.

 I have a friend that went native down there about 20 years ago,a wealthy gringo.

Made his money in coffee.

A panga is all you need.

Its up to you:howdy:
