Such beautiful views. Just watch out for the local wildlife.

A lot of the places that we have listed here sound great and I did a little reading about some of them because of the old saying "That if it sounds too good to be true", then watch out.

That being said, some of the places like Panama had some serious issues about house maids coming to work for you and then going to the labor dept about you and with you being a "gringo" they could tie you up in court and hold onto some or all of your assets. Also, if you get into any kind of trouble with the local population, it is not like being in the USA, they made it sound like you were guilty until proven innocent?????

I don't know if what I read is true or not, but I do know a little bit about Mexico and you can get into a lot of trouble there and you also cannot buy land there unless you are a citizen. You can lease the land for up to 99 years, but you can't buy it.

Sounds like most of these places are very nice, but you would really want to do your homework before going there to live full time.

Scotland is nice. I enjoyed traveling around the moors. Very remote and peaceful.

I have lived here for 11 1/2 years. Without a doubt, best weather in the country if you enjoy sunshine. However, high taxes and incompetent government are things you would have to deal with.

Could you live there on a good retirement income? How are the medical facilities there and how do they treat outsiders that want to come and live there? I will hang up and listen for your reply.

Been to CR a couple of times and would not mind retiring there. Cost of living is cheaper than U.S.

Since this is an "if" post here goes. If assumes you have the money to do what you want, for me October thru April PGA West La Quinta, CA. (no not a golfer). April thru October Great Smokey Mountains.

Sorry y'all...I'm a Sandlapper through and through. I just can't leave here. I would retire to land on the banks of the Cooper River (or maybe on the rice patties that line the river) off Old 52 near Berkeley Country Club and have a home on Lake Murray as well.
