The Best Overseas Destinations For A Post-Election Move

The Downside To Our Opportunity-Chasing Approach

A recent study revealed that 28% of Americans say they’ll move to Canada if a certain famous presidential candidate gets elected…

No offense to our beautiful and seemingly well-run neighbor to the north…

But that study leads me to believe that 28% of Americans are either off their rockers… or haven’t thought this through.

Imagine waking up next January somewhere in Canada…

Trust me… the brilliance of the new-fallen snow will disappear the instant your car won’t start because the engine’s a frozen block of ice.

Snow sure can look romantic… untilyou have to deal with it on a daily basis.

I do agree with those 28% of Americans on one thing, though…

No matter who wins the election, America’s in for a bumpy ride.

The truth is, whether you’re thinking you might want to get out of the States sooner rather than later… or you just like the idea of exploring the opportunities and adventures that other countries have to offer…

You have far, far more enjoyable, more affordable, and better weather options than our frosty neighbor to the north.

In fact, it may seem you have too many options.

That is, how are you to choose?

Our mission is to introduce you to all of your best choices for living, retiring, and reinventing your life overseas. As a result, we’re always hopping around the globe—both literally (my team logs an awful lot of frequent flyer miles) and in these dispatches.

In the past month alone, for example, my daily communications to you have showcased current and tempting opportunities for a new life in Portugal, the Dominican Republic, Belize, Panama, Colombia, Mexico…

Over the past year, we’ve reported on dozens of options.

We realize that our open-minded, opportunity-chasing agenda has a downside. It can lead to an over-abundance of possibility… which can lead to confusion… which can lead to paralysis.

How are you to figure out which, among all the dozens of great options we highlight, is the best place for you to think about launching the next phase of your life?

Once a year, we provide a forum with the specific objective of helping you find an answer to that question.

Once a year, we convene expat friends and far-flung colleagues from all of the world’s best places to think about spending time. We get these folks altogether at one time in one place. It’s no small feat.

This annual Retire Overseas Conference is unlike any other event we offer. This is your easiest, most convenient, most cost-effective (by far) option for considering all the world’s top overseas havens at one time, with expert guidance.

Over the four days of this event, my team introduces you to your top choices worldwide for living better, retiring well, making money, and having a grand adventure.

It’s the best first step to a new life in a new country that I can imagine. If you’re an American, you don’t even need a passport.

This year’s event is taking place Aug. 28–31 in Las Vegas. I’ve worked with my team this week to finalize the list of countries our 2016 where-to-retire-overseas showcase will feature:

1. Belize… Rain forests, reefs, ruins, and rivers… the best place in the world to embrace the self-sufficient life, a great back-up residency option, and boasting one of the world’s most established and welcoming expat communities (on Ambergris Caye)… plus everyone speaks English…

2. Portugal… Yes, you can afford to retire to the Old World… in fact, Portugal is our 2016 pick for the world’s best place to retire, period…

3. Dominican Republic… A sand-fringed island nation with a low cost of living and bargain-priced property markets that is also the best go-offshore destination (for residency, citizenship, and banking) that no one is talking about…

4. Argentina… From cosmopolitan Buenos Aires to Mendoza wine country, this country is on a comeback track… now is the time to return to the pampas…

5. Colombia… The world’s next live and invest overseas destination… you read it here first… and right now, thanks to the strong dollar, the cost of everything in Colombia is a screaming bargain…

6. Chile… The ease of First World living, plus easy residency with little hassle…

7. Ecuador… A longtime favorite retirement option that boasts colonial cities and great weather…

8. France… The world’s best health care… the world’s most beautiful and most romantic city… and more affordable than you might think, especially in the “other South of France”…

9. Honduras… Specifically Roatán… a white-sand-fringed island that is one of our favorite expat havens in the Caribbean…

10. Croatia… Affordable Mediterranean like it used to be…

11. Italy… If you dream of la dolce vita, we can tell you not only where to find it, but also how to afford it… our top region here is affordable, coastal, and nearby to nearly everything…

12. Malaysia… Possibly the most welcoming destination in Asia for retirees…

13. Mexico… Accessible, affordable, and offering diverse lifestyle options… the easiest possible choice for North Americans…

14. Nicaragua… A long and glorious Pacific coastline… plus home to colonial cities and arguably the most affordable lifestyle options in the Americas…

15. Panama… The world’s #1 haven when considering lifestyle, retirement, and investment altogether… and the best place in the world to launch and run an internet business…

16. Philippines… An English-speaking island chain that welcomes Americans… it also boasts the only VA hospital outside the United States…

17. Brazil… A huge, diverse nation boasting excellent investment opportunity and bargain beach properties… that, thanks, again, to the strong dollar, is more interesting for greenback holders than it’s been in years…

18. Spain… An established haven for foreign investors and expats with great beaches, markets, restaurants, attractions, and fiestas…

19. Thailand… Super affordable and exotic… an incredible melting pot of expats from around the world… this “Land Of Smiles” is famously welcoming…

20. Uruguay… Safe and stable… a great place to raise a family… like the America you remember from your childhood…

21. Vietnam… Welcoming people, an unbelievable low cost of living, and the most beautiful beaches on earth…

Which one of these destinations is best for you?

I couldn’t say… but I’d love to work with you on discovering the answer live, in person, and with the help of the many dozens of my colleagues, correspondents, expert advisors, and expat friends who will be meeting me in Las Vegas this August.

How do you make a life-changing decision like this one?

You compare and contrast. You consider the advantages and, critically, the disadvantages of every destination that has your attention. And you connect the dots between the picture of the new life overseas you’re dreaming about and the reality of life in each of the world’s top lifestyle havens.

You set your priorities… and then you shop your options.

This August in Vegas, you can do it with my help and the help of my entire LIOS team.

This is my favorite event of our year. I look forward to it… and to meeting you there.
