By far our most comprehensive study to date, this just-released, 324-page report identifies and scores the 30 best places on earth to think about living or retiring overseas.
Keep in mind that this year’s edition of the Index is more than just a study on the world’s best places to live…
Inside you’ll also find a comprehensive list of moving-overseas FAQs, detailed cost-of-living budgets, recommendations for what you should spend if you’re interested in purchasing a home of your own or renting… how to bring your pets with you to your new home overseas… our editors’ “best of” picks for singles and families, and much, much more…
Our special, 300-plus page 2017 Overseas Retirement Index provides you with a map to the best places in the world today to reinvent your life, chase adventure, have a great time, and maybe reduce your cost of living dramatically.
From the Algarve, Portugal (which takes top honors in this year’s Index—again!); Valletta, Malta; Mazatlán, Mexico; Abruzzo, Italy; and Saint-Chinian, France (rounding out our top 5 for 2017); to Ambergris Caye, Belize; Bled, Slovenia; Medellín, Colombia; Chiang Mai, Thailand; El Valle, Panama; and beyond… this year’s Index makes it easier than ever to custom-fit retirement overseas to your needs and illustrates how you can tailor every decision you make to what you want out of life in your Golden Years.
This greatly expanded Index features 10 more destinations than we’ve ever included—for a total of 30 top havens; with 11 all-new, never-before-featured places; and with new groupings based on the most sought-after lifestyles the world has to offer.
Plus, in an exciting change to this year’s methodology, you can now browse top havens by lifestyle. Are you more interested in big-city living or a small-town atmosphere? Perhaps you have your heart set on a historical, colonial spot or are only interested at living up in the highlands… or maybe no place will do unless it’s on a palm-tree lined white sand beach? No matter the lifestyle you envision for yourself, this year’s Index offers two quintessential top picks for each region of the world we cover.
If there’s a “perfect place” in the world for you, we can all but guarantee you can find it in the 2017 Overseas Retirement Index.
