Today I’m driving from what looks like small-town USA to an island paradise. But I’m in Panama City’s Ancon sector, heading out to the area known as the Amador causeway. It’s a five-minute drive during rush hour. Take a look at the video I shot. It’s nearly sunset, my favorite time of day to […]
The bicentennial of Mexican independence is this year, and the highlands are where it all began. The biggest celebration will be the night of September 15 when President Felipe Calderon re-enacts the famous “cry of Dolores,” El Grito, that launched Mexico’s fight for independence. This marks the beginning of parties and parades all over the country and you can expect some blow-outs this year.
Costa Rica is the “richest country on earth.” That’s the conclusion we’ve reached over the last three days of discussion here at the 2010 International Living Live & Invest in Costa Rica Seminar. Nowhere else can you live as well, as long, or as happily… for as little money. Today was especially eye opening. I’m […]
The water is warm and inviting, no question. And I’m swimming. But still, after Day Two of the 2010 International Living Live & Invest in Costa Rica Seminar taking place in San Jose, I’m beginning to feel like I could use a lifeline. You see, the morning started on an easy enough note. Attorney Roger […]
Mention Costa Rica, and most people picture surf crashing on miles of beautiful, sandy beaches or jewel-bright birds darting through mist-shrouded rainforest canopies.
There’s something intriguing about Hungary. Take away Budapest, goulash and gypsy violins, and it’s practically unknown to the English-speaking world.
Turquoise waters lap the shores in front of me. Behind me the sun’s light glints off a beautiful lagoon. It’s mid-afternoon and I’m on the rooftop terrace of a beachfront restaurant. I’m told the view at dusk is jaw-dropping, but I think it’s pretty jaw-dropping right now…
“Nemo,” the bright orange 1978 Land Rover my son Jeff purchased for his months in Costa Rica, had broken down again. The rutted, dirt roads here take their toll on cars and trucks, and Nemo was having a bad week. It was also the time I had just arrived from the States.
Imagine discounts of up to 46% on prime, city-center real estate. The only catch? You have to keep it to yourself.
I first went to China in 1998. It was a bleak place. My parents had been there in 1987 and nothing much had changed.
The beaches at Tulum on Mexico’s Caribbean coast are some of the most beautiful stretches of white sand and turquoise water on the entire planet.
While historic cities like Granada and Leon and the beautiful beaches of San Juan del Sur have attracted the attention of expats and vacationers in recent years, there’s more to Nicaragua than colonial facades and affordable beachfront property.
Picture it: a white-sand beach, washed by the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. The palm trees sway gently in the cooling ocean breeze. Offshore, on the barrier reef, swims a rainbow kaleidoscope of tropical fish. Inland, unexplored rainforest runs for miles, concealing Mayan ruins and exotic wildlife.
It wasn’t hard to get IL’s roving correspondent Steenie Harvey to spend time in South-East Asia. After all, there are no winters here…just thousands of glittering tropical-island paradises, all within easy reach…
Regular readers know how highly I rate the real estate opportunities in Brazil—particularly Fortaleza.
“Gaudi is waiting for you” promise the brochures. And so he is. Barcelona bursts with the splendors of modernisme, its home-grown version of Art Nouveau.
The road was still damp from the recent rain, and the streams were still rising. The dense, green foliage formed a dark tunnel over the dirt road I was traveling on. It was almost dark.
Listen up, shoppers. From finely crafted furniture to silver jewelry… pounded-tin trinkets… handmade guitars… multi-colored textiles… thick wool rugs… and intricately detailed leather bags, jackets and boots… you’ll find it all in Mexico.
The signature lighthouse is a dead giveaway…at least for anyone who’s traveled the Uruguayan coast between Punta del Este and the Brazilian border.
Uruguay is rich in good-value beach and colonial real estate. You can easily find great places to live or spend time. Can investors make money here also? You bet…
Today, I’m going reveal a secret Wall Street doesn’t want you to know about.
Nothing beats island life, especially when you share your island with world-class wineries, oyster farms, restaurants and endless bustling cafes. All this, and you’re just 30 minutes away from the modern city of Auckland in New Zealand.
The market was clearly headed straight up in 2003 when we went to Roatan, Honduras, on an International Living tour.
The first thing that got my attention in Mercedes, Uruguay was the motorbikes…rows of motorbikes with keys dangling from the ignition.
Imagine if every day was “your time” to relax…or to do whatever it is that helps you unwind.
Imagine the scene… It’s September 1, 1939. Crack German troops and Panzer tanks are pouring into Poland. One million Polish soldiers—including some heavily outgunned cavalry divisions—are desperately battling to save their country from the Nazi invaders.
When I picked a place to settle in Uruguay, I picked the most-expensive city they had.
It was fairly quiet at my apartment, which is unusual. I can usually hear Tango music drifting up from the square, the crowds chatting while waiting to enter the theater, or at least a bus going by. Today however, there was no traffic, and no one in the square.
I’m exploring Zambales province on the west coast of Luzon, the Philippines largest island. I’m staying in the Subic Bay area…but there’s more to it than the 262-square-mile Freeport Zone (SBFZ)—a U.S. Naval base until 1992.
Tuscany’s heartland of rolling hills, sunflower fields and medieval hill towns is often called the “Golden Triangle”. It’s easy to see why.
People often say I have their dream job. And I can’t disagree. It’s helped fund my travels to 56 countries in the last three years. From Guatemala to Greece, Mexico to Mozambique.
Perched on a wall, scoffing a mint-and hazelnut ice cream, I’m watching an Italian mountain rescue collie go through his paces. No spectator fee for this local dog show. It’s happening on a grassy square outside Barga’s medieval walls.
When it comes to pampering yourself, there’s nothing quite like a spa. Hot baths, a few massages, fresh air and good food…for me, it’s one of the best ways to relax. So when I had the chance to chill for a few days in Baños, Ecuador, I jumped at the opportunity.
I love living in Buenos Aires. The city offers world-class culture, architecture, and entertainment at a bargain price for dollar-earners. But whenever I need a break from Argentina’s capital, I just take a short boat ride across the Rio de la Plata…
For most people, the words “Colombian Caribbean” conjure up images of Cartagena, Colombia’s famous walled city and UNESCO World Heritage Site. And I’ll admit that Cartagena is an absolute “must see” if you go to Colombia.
I’m writing this from a location on Ecuador’s North Coast…here to scout for big pieces of land…
There is a place where silken seas of blue, jade and turquoise lap white-sand beaches. Where you can buy a beachfront condo (Caribbean beachfront) for just $55,000…
So what’s your reason for not already having your second passport?
You may think of residency as a necessary evil—a piece of bureaucracy that must be endured so that you can stay in a country you’ve selected for other reasons.
It probably seems like a radical idea to those who were born and lived their lives in only one country, but individuals with financial means and a little determination can, without much trouble, become international citizens.
