As this Next Avenue article explains, International Living is out with its Annual Global Retirement Index and has chosen the Top 10 places to retire abroad for 2018.

The researchers combined data on 24 countries with reporting from International Living correspondents to come up with the list. The top country for 2018: Costa Rica. See the following list to learn about each of the Top 10 places.

1. Costa Rica

Costa Rica, a popular, safe, low-stress place for tourists and U.S. expats, jumped from No. 4 to No. 1 in this year’s International Living Annual Global Retirement Index. The economy is growing, the thermal springs are bubbling and the beaches are enticing.

2. Mexico

In Mexico, International Living says, a couple can live on $1,500 to $3,000 a month — including rent and health care — depending on location. And talk about varying locations: You can choose to retire on a tropical beach, in the temperate mountains, in a Spanish-colonial city or in a small village.

International Living says health care is “good to excellent.” Private health care typically costs a quarter to half of what it does in the U.S. If you have a residence visa, you can get Mexico’s public health care for a few hundred dollars a year. That public health care is free if you’re over 60 and a legal resident.
