Every so often we run into amazing opportunities we just can’t share with all of our readers. They are specific ways to save money on your travels… make smarter investments… slash your taxes… and keep your financial affairs private. In every issue, you’ll not only get the inside scoop on valuable strategies you can use as an international investor… you’ll also get firsthand reports on privacy or wealth protection… as they’re uncovered by our editors.
Our editors are constantly on scouting trips to check out places we have on our radar as possible retirement havens… or sometimes they’re simply checking back in on one of our favorite locales. Either way, they’ve got boots on the ground. They’re out there gathering intelligence, checking on markets, getting a real-world feel for the best opportunities, for how much stuff really costs, for a realistic view on what’s actually going on there. We make sure you know the whole story – before anybody else.
International Living solves your number-one problem when looking for a better lifestyle for retirement: How do you find all the opportunities available to you beyond your borders? The mainstream media doesn’t report on them. Your financial advisor, your relatives, or friends don’t know about them.

Fast-Track Costa Rica: Lifestyle & Opportunity Conference
August 5-7, 2013 – San Jose, Costa Rica
Costa Rica is one country that may truly have it all: a year-round tropical climate, modern cities, Caribbean beaches, Pacific coastline, rain forests, lush valleys, and mountains.
With its slower pace of living , warm, welcoming climate, healthy, fresh foods and reputation as one of the ‘greenest, cleanest’ countries in the world with little pollution and lots of clean water and fresh air… it’s no wonder Costa Ricans are considered the “happiest people on the planet”.
Join us in Costa Rica this November, and we’ll tell you exactly where to go, who to see, and what kinds of properties make sense if you’d like to buy in this country.
This time next year—you could be living your dream life in Costa Rica. And the Fast-Track Costa Rica: Lifestyle & Opportunity Conference is the best, most efficient way to make it happen.

- Step Offshore: A Roadmap to Taking Yourself and Your Money Overseas
Posted on November 19, 2012 by International Living
There is a lot of incorrect, incomplete, downright dangerous information out there about the offshore world. Let’s face it… it gets a bad rap. Yet it’s perfectly legal to have an offshore bank account… or own property overseas… or have a second passport. With all the poor information and suspect advice floating around on the web about your options offshore, we felt it our obligation to set the record straight.
We’ve spent the last year—and at least $30,000—determining the expat haven in the Americas with the very best quality of life.
Not the ‘cheapest.’ Not the most ‘undiscovered.’ Not the ‘closest to home’ or the most touted in mainstream media sources. But the BEST.
The results can be found in the Blueprint for Your New Life in Uruguay.
One of the biggest stumbling blocks readers tell us they encounter when they consider going overseas is how they’ll pay for life. But you might be surprised at the variety of options you have—fun, flexible, interesting ways you can fund a travel-rich life…options you may never have even thought about. That’s why we’ve created the Ultimate Fund Your Life Overseas Kit.
Would you like to be a modern-day “treasure hunter”? Did you know that your vacations could be a source of income? Are you always looking for an excuse to travel, a reason to head out on that next adventure? Your extra suitcase or two full of “souvenirs” would come home with you…and more than pay for your trip. And you trip could be anywhere in the world…Thailand, Mexico, Argentina, Cambodia, India, Costa Rica, Tibet, Chile, Nicaragua, Bali, Kenya, Greece…anywhere you’d care to travel or spend a few months a year, even live full-time. That is what life as an import-exporter could provide you…
If you’ve always imagined yourself in the Caribbean… if that’s the escape you conjure up when somebody says, “dream retirement,” then you need to have Belize on your radar screen. In tropical, English-speaking Belize, “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem” is the perfect tag line. Life is relaxed and independent spirits thrive. You can live well for $21,000 a year. And in the Blueprint for a New Life in Belize, we show you how you can settle in to a better, more affordable life in the Caribbean and do it seamlessly, enjoyably, confidently…

Posted on April 30, 2013 by International Living
Costa Rica is not a “new” destination for International Living. Through the 1990s, the market boomed. Prices for beachfront property along the Pacific Coast increased 6-, 8-, 10-fold and more… But as property prices rose in Costa Rica, we (and our readers) began looking elsewhere. Today, when things are changing again, it makes sense for you to take a look at this darling of Central America. We have gathered together all the essential information you will need to give you a head start in enjoying the benefits of this beautiful and exciting country in Escape to Costa Rica – Everything You Need to Know to Retire Better, Invest Well, and Enjoy the Good Life for Less.

Posted on March 22, 2013 by International Living
International Living ranked Panama the number one place in the world to retire for six consecutive years, and today it remains in our top five.
This country has the most advanced and modern infrastructure in Central America…First-World convenience at Third-World prices—you can still take a taxi across town for a couple of dollars, see a movie for under $4, get a trim at the barbershop for $5…or have dinner for two with a bottle of wine at one of the city’s trendy restaurants for just $30.
Panama has one of the world’s best incentive programs for pensioners. What about the cost of real estate? Let’s just say that you’ll be surprised at how much Panama still has to offer.

Posted on March 5, 2013 by International Living
Sell your winter clothes, and prepare for the adventure of your lifetime. In Ecuador, every cliché you’ve heard about living large on little money-about settling into the lap of luxury on even a pensioner’s budget-is true. Take $300 out of the ATM Monday morning-and your expenses are covered for the week. This is one of the world’s cheapest places to live.
Ecuador is gentle…safe…healthy…private…civil. As one friend of ours put it: “It’s like living in the 1950s in the U.S.”
It doesn’t take newcomers long to realize that Belize has a very unusual culture. It’s a land of Mayan temples, colonial mansions, jungle lodges, and seaside condos. Though the predominant language is English, your next-door neighbors might speak Spanish, Creole, French, German, or any of a dozen other languages. Belize is a country where you can dine out on Mexican food while Garifuna music plays in the background. Belize: The Owner’s Manual will take you step-by-step through this stable English-speaking, democracy and give you a head start in enjoying its benefits.

Whether you’ve moved, are considering a move (either part-time or full-time), or have investment property overseas, the information you’ll find in the following pages is invaluable. Admittedly, our approach is different. Nick is not going to talk you through every single line of every form—the IRS instruction manuals do a good job of that. But, at the end of reading this, you’ll have a better idea of what exemptions and credits you qualify for, what forms you should fill out, and what IRS documents you really need to read.
- The World’s Best: The Ultimate Book For The International Traveler 2012
Posted on June 27, 2012 by International Living
We have tried to include bests in every corner of the globe…in Bucharest and Buenos Aires…in Nepal and Nova Scotia…in Washington, DC and Wales… but we realize that we have but skimmed the surface. Our correspondents sent us their picks for the world’s best art museum, sunset, surfing, scuba diving, opera house, ski resort, canyon, champagne, castle, nightclub, island, garden, market, train ride, travel
bargains, restaurants, cafés, and neighborhoods.
The World’s Best draws forth for you a small sampling of the wealth our world has to offer.
Tourists are a commodity, and they’re treated as such on the world market––a volume business. But the untourist is a singular soul. He passes through unnoticed and is indistinguishable from the local population. He enjoys a place just as a local would enjoy it. He knows where to go, where to eat, where to sleep, and where to shop. He knows how to buy, how much to pay, when to haggle, and
when to tip. He knows what to do in an emergency and recognizes a scam when he sees one. He gets the best deals and the best experiences. This book was written with the untourist in mind.

We could have easily given you coordinates for the local McDonalds and Pizza Huts, but we think we know you a bit better than
that. From Ireland’s best oysters to Japan’s most tender eel, here’s our best to you.
- Costa Ballena: Costa Rica’s Affordable Frontier 2013
Posted on May 8, 2013 by International Living
This stunning stretch of Costa Rica’s coastline has literally been cut off from the rest of the country by the chain of mountains that border it for decades. Only four small towns (to speak of) exist there, and many of the locals have never even traveled to the country’s capital (just 101 miles away) or over the mountains at all…it’s been too difficult. Miles and miles of pristine, tawny beaches…with sheltered coves and private inlets…have been cut off from the world…but that’s all about to change as the world’s most perfect and private coastal destination is becoming accessible…Welcome to the Costa Ballena.
