Photos From Around the IL World

With a strong economy, mild weather, top-notch healthcare and one of the best infrastructures in Latin America, Uruguay is fast becoming one of the top countries in the world to retire to. Locals and expats alike flock to the Sunday Market at El Valle de Anton, Panama for fresh fruit and vegetables and great deals on modern and traditional clothing. Rancho Santana boasts a wealth of wildlife, an equestrian center, clubhouse and restaurant, and tennis courts, as well as five beaches—one of which is covered in rose-colored sand. At the Mexican beach resort of Puerto Vallarta, patrons enjoy authentic Mexican food and the sea view. The beachfront restaurant (Cuates y Cuetes) is a great spot to enjoy a bucket of cervesas and some Spanish guitar. At the Saturnia pools in Tuscany, Italy you can get a free hydro-massage in their ice-blue, thermal waters. In medieval times, the site was rumored to be a meeting place for local witches. The enormous flower markets of Berziers, France are a must-see. Every Friday morning the alles Paul Riquet are filled with explosions of color and the scent of thousands of flowers. Cuenca, Ecuador’s third-largest city and the economic center of the southern sierra, has long been known for its rich intellectual, artistic, and a philosophical tradition. It is now famous for its colorful festivals, distinctive food and breathtaking scenery.

 Move to Belize, where you can soak up the Caribbean sun and live the relaxing life you’ve always dreamed of for a lot less than you might imagine.  IL Uruguay correspondent, David Hammond talks about the advantages of moving to Uruguay—a country that truly offers a First-World lifestyle for everyone—whether it’s beach, city, or country-living you’re after. Panama…and particularly its capital (Panama City)…is one of the most exciting, international places to live in Latin America. Nicaragua is a beautiful country—boasting a dramatic Pacific coastline; long Caribbean beaches; and volcanoes and freshwater lakes that dot the hilly inland. And colonial cities like Granada and León offer visitors a taste of days gone by. IL senior editors Dan Prescher and Suzan Haskins live in Ecuador where they enjoy dramatic scenery from their home, a low cost of living and a laidback lifestyle. Mexico offers expats a vibrant local culture and rich history; friendly people and their relaxed lifestyle; a sunny climate; the delicious food and drink; and the miles of coastline, much of it warm, sandy beach.  Costa Rica editor Jason Holland lives in this country with his wife and young family. They and other expats who live here relish the climate, neighborly atmosphere, low cost of living, excellent healthcare, stable democracy, and countless ways to have fun.
