The Best Emerging Markets You’ve Never Considered

The Best Emerging Markets You’ve Never Considered

The big news this week is the bailout of Ireland by the European Union and the IMF. Ireland’s problem is straightforward: the liabilities of its banks exceed the assets of the state. Put simply, the country is broke.

Mexico's Top 3 Colonial Cities

Mexico’s Top 3 Colonial Cities

When many people think of Mexico, they think of the Colonial Highlands with its beautiful Spanish colonial cities….cities whose cobblestone streets lead to tranquil squares and green parks…where fountains splash in quiet patios…

Boquete, Panama

Boquete, Panama For $9.25 a Day

I’m in the town of Boquete, in Panama’s luscious green highlands. The crowds that were here for the November holidays (Nov. 3-5) have dispersed, and those of us who remain find that Boquete is a very quiet place indeed.

Corsica, France: The Mediterranean’s Unspoiled Idyll

Corsica, France: The Mediterranean’s Unspoiled Idyll

Fresh air, fish stew, red wine. I’ll sleep. Tonight’s lullaby is the murmur of waves and the tinkle of masts in Macinaggio’s harbor. Earlier, I’d walked the village’s Sentier Douane, a seashore footpath once used by customs officers hunting for smugglers.

A Beach House That Pays For Itself

A Beach House That Pays For Itself

Volcan: The Most Affordable Retirement in Panama

Volcan: The Most Affordable Retirement in Panama

It’s a stunning drive to Volcan—and that’s not just travel writer hype. As the road winds up into the mountains, one vista after another unfolds. I have driven this road many times over the past four years, and it’s still as invigorating as ever.

A Brazilian Island Home With Ocean View For Less Than $68,000

A Brazilian Island Home With Ocean View For Less Than $68,000

The island rises in front of you like a lush, green paradise…its verdant hills fringed with thick, tangled mangroves and studded with tall palms. As you approach from the mainland causeway, Brazil’s Itamaracá looks like an oasis rising out of the Atlantic.

The 83-cents-a-day Health Plan in Mexico

The 83-cents-a-day Health Plan in Mexico

On a recent trip to the U.S., I got to catch up with a few State-side friends. One of them, I learned, is trying to schedule knee-replacement surgery. She had one knee operated on several years ago; now it’s time for the other. Fortunately, my friend’s insurance will cover most of the cost. But many people in the U.S. aren’t so lucky.

The Easy Path to Part-Time Retirement

The Easy Path to Part-Time Retirement

Three months… six weeks… a short-term escape is a flexible alternative to the “all or nothing” move. But the real beauty of it is that it’s easy… So easy you can start right now.

Hong Kong: Live Abroad Without Spending a Dime

Hong Kong: Live Abroad Without Spending a Dime

It’s true. Here I am, barely out of the proverbial nest and already taking vacations most people would only dream of. After graduating university, I began teaching English in a Hong Kong kindergarten during the week to fund my adventures.

Improve Your Quality of Life: Move to Boquete, Panama

Improve Your Quality of Life: Move to Boquete, Panama

It must be the best view in the country…green hills that inspire artistic tendencies in even the most mundane-minded. Rainbow-rows of flowers line neat footpaths and dress up the little cottages that hide behind them. This is Boquete.

Three Ways to Buy Brazil

Three Ways to Buy Brazil

There are three real estate trends taking shape in Brazil that you can take advantage of right now. I’ll tell you more in a moment. First, some quick background on the country—and the region I’m most bullish on.

Huge Jungle Lots for $13,000 an Acre

Huge Jungle Lots for $13,000 an Acre

Once these seven lots are gone…that’s it. The phase is sold out. This deal is off the table. Future phases will likely come with a higher price tag and a build requirement.

Costa Rica's Best-Kept Secret

Costa Rica’s Best-Kept Secret

It’s Costa Rica’s best-kept secret—and it caused quite a stir at a recent IL conference. Some attendees had been there before and couldn’t wait to share what they’d found. Word is slowly getting out about this hidden hot spot…

The Easy Way to Live in Costa Rica

I found my home in Costa Rica (where I can wait out the snowy New Jersey winters) on the Pacific coast. You can do all the research you want, but you won’t find the right place for you until you set foot in it and feel that it’s right.

Happy Expats in Costa Rica

Happy Expats in Costa Rica

Long stretches of deserted and undeveloped beaches, on the Caribbean and Pacific Coasts…dense jungles teeming with exotic wildlife…towering volcanoes, lush green valleys, and hundreds of crystal-clear lakes, rivers, streams, and waterfalls…
