Ecuador… A Retirement Haven That Has it All…
Quito, Ecuador, November 9-11, 2011
Winner of the 2011 Global Retirement Index, Ecuador offers sophisticated historical cities…miles of unspoiled, sun-kissed beaches…fertile farmland…and temperate mountain hideaways…and all of it for pennies on the dollar. You can live well for a fraction of the cost of living back in the U.S.—your budget here will be reduced to as little as a ﬁfth of what it was.
And with Ecuador’s ofﬁcial currency the U.S. dollar, you needn’t worry about complicated currency calculations or exchange risks. And real estate costs? They’re among the lowest we’ve found anywhere in the world. For example, you can get a brand-new home one row off the beach with a gorgeous ocean view for just $115,000.
And Ecuador is just a four-hour ﬂight from the U.S.—less time than it takes to ﬂy from New York to Los Angeles. If you’re intrigued by the beneﬁts our number one retirement haven in the world offers, then join us in Ecuador this November for our Live and Invest in Ecuador Seminar. We’ll show you the best-value destinations, walk you through all the how-to secrets you need to save time, money, and effort, and introduce you to our best contacts on the ground.

Pathfinder Chill Weekend, Ojochal, Costa Rica, November 17 – 20
In Costa Rica’s Southern Zone, knife-edge mountain ridges curve like a dragon’s spine, dropping sharply to the coast’s long, sandy beaches. Rich, pristine forests teeming with wildlife cloak the mountain slopes. Yet here you’re only three hours from an international airport.
It might sound like a pricey fantasy, but in fact, you can own a lot here for only $40,000. And it’s in a place poised to boom. With a new road making access much easier than ever before, this region is well positioned to see an inﬂux of tourists and transplants. Prices are likely to rise, just as they did along Costa Rica’s northern coast. But right now, the values remain excellent. You can see the place for yourself on a Pathﬁnder Chill Weekend. For only $250, you’ll get four days here…meals, accommodation and transport included. See here for more information.
This Time Next Year, You Could be Living Your Dream, Las Vegas, NV October 06
If money were no object, what would your dream retirement look like? This fall, we’ll show you where you can easily make that dream your reality…for $697 (or less) a month. Your own cottage on a quiet beach…an apartment in a city vibrant with concerts and cafés…a mountain villa where the air is crisp… Whatever you dream about, come with that in mind.
And dream big. Because at our Live and Invest Overseas Conference in Las Vegas, we’ll pinpoint for you on a map the places where you can turn your dream into reality…for a small fraction of what you’d pay at home. You’ll ﬁnd about the best-value communities and our favorite ﬁnds in destinations like Belize, Panama, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Uruguay, Costa Rica, Argentina, Mexico, Spain, France, Ireland and beyond. We’ll introduce you to the folks you need to know.
You’ll hear from our editors ﬂying in from around the world…experts in real estate, ﬁnance…and from readers like you who are already “doing it,” living better for less in their new homes abroad.
You’ll have plenty of time to pick their brains about everything from renovating a home to shopping for groceries, from wealth protection strategies to ﬁnding good medical care, from funding your life overseas to renting or buying that ideal escape. This is our only U.S. event of the year. There’s no more efﬁcient, enjoyable, or cost-effective way to put yourself on the path to the place that’s right for you. See here for more information.
