You have worked hard over the years and now you are ready to retire, relax and enjoy the rest your life. But why retire here in the US when you can relax on a beach or enjoy the culture of another country? Many people think you need a lot of money to retire overseas, but in fact, sometimes retiring in another country is actually less expensive. Here are three locations where you can live large on a small budget.
Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic
Imagine eight hundred miles of coastline with swaying palm trees and beautiful water. A place to relax and enjoy an abundance of sunshine sounds nice, especially when you can do it for a little over $1000 per month. The north coast of Puerto Plata is less busy than the tourist north coast beaches. You can enjoy living a resort style life without the cost. The typical monthly expenses come to around $1,100 per month for a couple, including rent, and it could be significantly less if you decide to purchase instead of rent. Real estate prices are a steal with an apartment costing less than $100,000
Have you ever dreamt of living in Italy, a country rich in culture? Popoli is a terrific area that is an affordable option for a couple that is retiring. The cozy village is home to around five thousand people. It is the last bit of the Old World where one can live without the concerns and issues of the modern age. Whether you want to live in a small home full of history or buy a farm where can grow your own produce, the average monthly budget for a couple comes to around $1,200 per month. Not to shabby for stepping back in time.
Chiang Mai, Thailand
What if you didn’t have to cook again? What is you could eat out every night? Chiang Mai is a low cost city where it is cheaper to go out every night for dinner than to grocery shop. It has high quality healthcare, inexpensive public transportation, and modern infrastructure. A three bedroom villa with a swimming pool will be around $830 per month, which includes utilities and cable. There is no place in Orlando where you can live that cheap.
