The baguettes from the bakery are still warm. Always fresh and crisp. You can buy your cheese next door. It’s worth the short trip. The fridge at the delicatessen is piled high and deep with cheeses from Europe’s trophy cheese producing regions.
See the video below for Dan Prescher’s weekly wrap-up of the IL postcards. In these postcards, published for the week (May 3 to 7), you’ll learn about where to find the real property bargains in Tuscany. We travel back to Colombia to give you an update on this country.

Only 51% of Indians brush their teeth.
How crazy was it to move our family with two young daughters from a comfortable home in Colorado Springs to the unknowns of Costa Rica?
Above the grand villas with their lichen-covered statuary and wisteria blossom, little villages cling to the hillsides. When their lights come on at dusk, it’s like a myriad stars twinkling away. One small house up there—stone-built, chestnut-beamed and habitable—is on the market for $72,600.
Around midway through my research for the first edition of my book, Patients Beyond Borders, an old root canal became infected and I needed an extraction and implant. When my specialist in North Carolina quoted $4,100 for the procedures, I knew it was time to “walk the medical tourism talk” and head overseas.
In this video postcard, you’ll learn about a way to pay less than everyone else for most things in Panama care of the the many retiree benefits of Panama’s Pensionado Program.
A heaving mailbag this week, which I’ll get to in a moment.
Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast is picture perfect. The sand is white and the water is turquoise.
Want to know how much money you’re likely to make on your U.S. stocks over the next, say, seven years? According to storied investor Jeremy Grantham, about 0.4%. Pretty crumby, right?
Jennifer King and her 60-year old mother, Pamela, came to Panama from Oregon about two and a half years ago, and their move has been a real success.
I just got back from my third trip to Colombia, and I’ve learned an important lesson about the country.
One of our favorites right now may surprise you…because it’s in a part of Tuscany that so far has remained “hidden”.
Today there’s too much supply and too few buyers in the Panama City condo market. You can benefit. Find out how.
“This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it,” said Ralph Waldo Emerson. He’s right. Opportunities for fun…pleasure…financial security and profits…romantic discoveries…adventure…they exist in every age. The trick is spotting them. I started International Living—30 years ago this month—with the idea that we could help […]
Al Fine knows a magic word: “jubilado”. He gets special treatment when he uses this word. He never has to wait in line. It’s not a trick…but an entitlement. You could be eligible to use this word, too.
These clear turquoise waters with patches of sapphire seem to belong in the Caribbean.
Isolated in the Chiriqui highlands of Panama’s western-most province, the town of Boquete might as well be in a different country.
The party is over… for this year, anyway.
The largest Live & Invest in Panama Conference in the history of International Living is now finished and entered in the record book.
Brazil is energy independent. In 2012 Brazil expects its enormous Tupi oil field to come on stream. Containing 60 billion barrels of oil, this field will catapult Brazil into being a major global energy player.
“Friend, I respect: your politics, your musical group, your football team, your romance. PLEASE: respect my walls (don’t write on them). Thank you.”
There’s a little beach town in Panama where you can still buy a home on a long stretch of beach. And you’ll pay very little for it. I’m pretty sure you’ve never heard of this place. Very few expats live here, yet it’s less than an hour from an airport. And about the same distance from Panama’s most popular expat locale
Find something you love to do and then do it like you love it. That’s good advice… something we’ve heard over and over. And it’s striking a chord with those who’ve joined us here in Panama at the International Living Live and Invest in Panama Seminar 2010.
Isn’t it curious that the month U.S. citizens pay income taxes begins with April Fool’s Day and ends with ‘May Day’—a commonly known distress signal?
We’re going to try something a little different today. I’m not sure where we’ll end up, but stick with me… We’ve added a lot of new readers over the past few months—to you, a big welcome. To help you get up to speed on how International Living can help you find an overseas adventure, opportunity, […]
One of the prettiest stretches of coast on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula is the Costa Maya.
As recently as the early 90s, expats were still in the technological dark ages. Remember, we were still writing letters then…our cell phones were almost the size of a shoe box, and cost hundreds of dollars per month to use.
Tomorrow is tax day.
If you are a U.S. citizen, that means you now have the chance to “earn” $750 dollars.
You gaze from your swaying hammock at the clear blue sky and the turquoise waters lapping against the shore. A gentle breeze off the water keeps you cool despite the tropical heat. The scene looks and feels like the Caribbean. But there’s something missing: the salt on your skin and sand in your bathing suit. If you love the beach but hate washing off the salt, Lake Bacalar is worth a visit.
There’s a wonderful 1972 French film called Le Viager. Its comic plot revolves around an unscrupulous French doctor who becomes so convinced one of his patients is about to die that he persuades the supposed invalid to enter into a very particular type of annuity contract.
Thanks to this website, I’ve enjoyed a long list of inexpensive vacations. The first auction I won, back in 2000, was for roundtrip airfare to Puerto Vallarta from Dallas with accommodation in a two-bedroom condo at the luxurious Mayan Palace. My winning bid: $226 per person.
The department of Rocha in the east of Uruguay stretches from South America’s premier resort, Punta del Este to the border with Brazil. The best beaches in Uruguay are here.
Argentina is the greatest place on earth for an investor. Not because its finances are such a success. But because they’re such a failure!
The grizzled barman took up station at his ancient, gleaming-brass espresso machine and started to operate the hand pump to make the aromatic and flavorful brew. I claimed a well-worn, wooden table next to the window in order to watch the morning crowd on their way to work in Ciudad Vieja, Montevideo’s historic center.
There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.
We didn’t know our crimson-rumped toucanet from our Andean cock of the rock, but based on pictures and descriptions, my wife Sharon and I decided to include a bird-watching–hiking destination on our recent Ecuador tour.
If you love the outdoors and crave a small-town mountain life (minus snow and ice, of course), listen up. I’ve got a place for you…
Wander along the cobblestone streets and through the manicured parks in Cuenca, Ecuador and it’s easy to imagine yourself thriving in this UNESCO World Heritage Site. A sea of red-tiled roofs pops against the blue sky. Ornate wrought-iron balconies cling to the colorful flat facades. Cuenca is one of the prettiest and liveliest cities in South America, known for its architecture, vibrant markets, and high-spirited festivals.
You wouldn’t buy a car without a test drive. But it’s surprising how many people are willing to buy a new home overseas without checking it out in person.
Greetings from Tulum on Mexico’s Riviera Maya. The sky is blue. The sand is white. The weather…just perfect.
