With spiraling costs compelling more and more North Americans to retire overseas, retiring abroad has never been more attractive. But finding the right location among the myriad options available can be daunting.
That’s what the annual International Living Global Retirement Index does. Using input from their team of correspondents on the ground all over the world, they combine real-world insights about climate, health care, cost of living, and much more to draw up a comprehensive list of the best retirement destinations on the planet.
Out of the top ten countries listed on the 2018 index, Latin American destinations took the top 3 spots. Costa Rica was given the title of “The World’s Number 1 Retirement Haven,” followed by Mexico, with Panama coming in at number three.
Mexico could be the retirement spot for you if you seek an adventure overseas, but don’t want to give up all the comforts of home. Almost anything you use or consume in the U.S. is also available in Mexico, though how easily available depends on where you base yourself in the country.
With two long coasts, mountains and colonial cities, the challenge is that Mexico offers many appealing lifestyle and climate alternatives, and you need to decide where you might be happiest.
