The Easiest Places in the World to Retire

An overseas adventure. The romance is built-in. The idea that you could escape your world and embrace a new one—a life filled with the things you love, enjoyed in a place you choose. What freedom…

Yet, as we know from the e-mails readers send, the “what ifs” can be paralyzing. What if I’m single? What if I can’t speak Spanish? What if I don’t meet other people with my interests? Spend too much time fretting, and you’ll never head for better shores.

A move overseas doesn’t have to be overwhelming. That’s why we’ve devoted the current issue of International Living magazine to your smooth and comfortable transition abroad.

When you choose a place that’s welcoming…arrive with the right contacts…and foster friends and connections…you’ll discover the romantic promise of a better life overseas isn’t just a fantasy. In this issue, we show you how to make it real.

On page 18 you’ll find our picks for the world’s easiest places to retire. Seven destinations where you can fit right in—and we show you how.

Throughout the issue you’ll find firsthand stories from expats who are already enjoying life overseas. On page 9 Tim and Donna Leffel say they’ve “found their place” in Guanajuato, Mexico, at 83-years of age. Patrick Robinson explains why Vilcabamba, Ecuador, makes sense on page 10. On page 11 retired police officer, Ray Jackson, reveals how he “escaped the boredom of a U.S. retirement” on Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast.
