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.
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…
But not all of Mexico’s colonial cities are in the Highlands. Some of the most notable colonial cities are actually elsewhere. Here are three that I particularly like—and none of them is anywhere near the Highlands.
Mention that you’re going to Colombia, and people think you’re crazy. But they haven’t been. My husband Dan Prescher and I visited three months ago…and wow…
The adventure and great benefits of life overseas can be yours right now—and you don’t have to sell everything and make a “forever” move to get them. Rather than plunge…take a part-time paddle to test the waters someplace new.
She’s the prettiest girl at the party… You can’t take your eyes off her. But she doesn’t know how beautiful she is. Not quite grown up yet, she doesn’t realize her own allure.
See the video below, where Dan Prescher answers some of your questions posted on the International Living Facebook page this week. Feel free to post your questions on living overseas here.
It’s early afternoon and I’m flying 10,000 feet above the Caribbean. The other 12 passengers are a mixture of locals…and expats who came here for a few days and never left.
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.
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.
Last week, the president of Ecuador was in Bahia. He wasn’t alone. Bahia has never seen so many people and such a carnival atmosphere.
Imagine your ideal retirement getaway… Maybe you see the surf of a turquoise sea gently lapping a beautiful sandy beach. Or perhaps you imagine a plush pad in a colonial capital.
President Obama is in India promoting trade between the U.S. and the world’s largest democracy. The visit puts a spotlight on India—one of the emerging market giants.
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.
When I first arrived in Panama, I was like a kid in a candy store. As a real estate investor, I immediately saw the opportunities.
Panama earned top marks in IL’s recent Retirement Index thanks to its second-to-none pensionado (retiree residency) program. When you qualify, you can save on almost everything, with discounts like 50% off entertainment, 30% off public transport, big discounts on airfares, and even 25% off eating out.
For the second year in a row, American retirees won’t see a cost-of-living increase in their Social Security benefits.
Brazil’s biggest real estate opportunities are in the Northeast, centered on Fortaleza. Historically this part of Brazil has been poorer than the more developed south…and real estate prices much lower.
Unless you’re living under a rock, you’ll know that the Fed is gearing up for more large-scale money printing this week.
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.
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.
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.
This is a pristine, unspoiled paradise…home to a protected biosphere and UNESCO world heritage site, ancient Mayan ruins and lush green jungle. It’s quintessential Caribbean…and where you’ll find some killer real estate deals right now.
Deborah Miller’s New York-based travel business took a nosedive after the events of September 11, 2001. Her husband, Leslie Payne, had an online job he could do from anywhere, so they decided to seize the opportunity circumstances had handed them.
I first came to Costa Rica 11 years ago for my 25th wedding anniversary…and I fell in love with everything I experienced here.
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.
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.
As an expat, there is a lot to do in Panama City. You’ll hear about the large international community, the First-World restaurants and clubs, and every activity imaginable.
I’m surrounded by pines and the birds are singing. Snow White. I can’t help it: All I can think about is that fairy tale.
Next time you’re booking a flight—stop. Rummage back through your old issues of IL until you find this article and read it.
As any Wall Street old timer will tell you, the stock markets are driven by two powerful emotions: fear and greed.
Sometimes, a real estate developer charges a different price to different groups for the same condo, lot or home. Obviously, you want to be part of the group that pays less and gets more favorable terms.
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.
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.
Belize is one politically stable little Central American country that makes it easy – whether you’re looking for an escape a few months a year or a full-time getaway.
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…
I went to Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica, to attend the TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) class. There is ALWAYS a job teaching English in virtually every corner of 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.
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…
Here are three photos we recently bought from freelance photographers (who happen to be IL readers) to publish in International Living magazine.
Imagine waking up to sunlight streaming through your window and walking out onto the deck of a beach house to see crisp white linens strung up to dry between palm trees.
