Best Places to Retire

When it comes to retirement, some of us have learned that it needn’t be a struggle. There are ways to live well on a retirement income.

You can retire to a place with warmer weather, a better quality of life, less crime, more cultural activities, healthier and less-expensive food, better and less-expensive health care…and you can do it for $2,000 a month or less, all in.

Here at International Living, we have been researching and reporting on the world’s best locations to retire for more than 30 years. Places where the opportunities far outweigh any risks or challenges, and you’ll find a better quality of life than you ever imagined was possible.

We’ve done the research for you. Every January we release our Annual Global Retirement Index . We ask our editors from around the world to rank and rate the best places in the world to retire. From Europe to Latin America, there are places in the world where you can make your retirement dreams a lavish reality for a small fraction of what a comparable lifestyle would cost you back home.

See below for more articles on the best places to retire—and learn more about destinations where health care is affordable and good, living costs are lower, property is a bargain and the retirement benefits are top-notch.
