Costa Rica, Spain and Belize are my top choices.

Costa Rica is especially appealing because it is beautiful and relatively unspoiled (small population, lots of national parks/ reserves), it is inexpensive, it is stable and has good education (no military so the money goes to education). Costa Rica also has attractive beaches, live volcanoes, cloud forests and excellent diving in both the Pacific and the Carribean.

I have 2 clients that moved to Costa Rica and a 3rd that will be on his way in the next 3 years. The last guy was going on and on a hotel he stayed at where they had alligators and a river running through the middle of it. He said the owner laughed and said something about you could never have this in the United States your attorneys are running the whole country over there now.

Yeah, it is a bit wild down there. My girlfriend and I were there in January. We went all the way down to Bahia Drake and stayed at a "hotel" on the beach near Corcovado Park. One evening we went down to the beach to watch the sunset and naturally stayed to skinny dip while the tide came in that evening. Only after we got back to the "hotel" did we find out that the river outlet at the beach that we had been swimming in was home to bullsharks- especially at high tide when it is easier for them to swim upriver looking for food.

Like BD if I were super rich I wouldn't want to move into the socialist mentality. I'd want to move to a very small country, preferably a tropical clime, where the taxes were low or nonexistant. Someplace where I could be away from traffic, congestion, basically anything that reminds you of time or to hurry up or anything like that. I'd throw away all the clocks in my house and live like I had all the time in the world.

The best part for me is that our business is basically classified as Internet hosting and our customer's monthly payments are small enough to be beneath the radar. They'll pay us outside the country and I'll get nearly every dollar they pay. That means it won't take me nearly as long to get the Mil or two that I want to have before I retire.

I also agree with several of the people here who are expressing a desire to chill out. I want to go somewhere where the sun wakes me up and the moon puts me to bed. I want to walk in the mountains and meditate by a stream. I want to be an hour's drive or less to a large city so that I can go to a restaurant when I want but I don't have to be involved in the city. I don't want cable TV, I probably wouldn't even have a TV if my wife would allow it.

I'll probably purchase the land and start building the home two to four years before I plan to move. Depending on how it all goes and if I find the right land I might even buy earlier than that. That will give me PLENTY of chance to learn the local language. Of course I'll have several visits to the country before I buy, so I don't forsee it being an issue.

question, how we're the people there? Italians have respect for America, and their people. You'd be fine there, no worries. It's all good.

well i was over there to play in a small college all-star game against the french national team (american football). at the game they treated us very well. away from the field they were very rude. i think french people are just rude by nature. even to their own people. i think they feel the same about us.

The whole movement is one. They are the one's that make a Rump Rangers life worth more than a heterosexual. Their mentality is the one promoting the pussification of the American male. This liberal EuroRump Ranger mentality is the one going after my dog now too. They crossed the line IMO when they did that. They won't be happy till every alpha male on the planet is nuetered, every gun is confiscated and every young buck has cock in his mouth.Watch out for those space aliens, too.

Southeast China is a really beautiful place. If language weren't a problem, I'd love to take a vacation there. Living there... since I have money it wouldn't be so bad.

Bottom line is your too young to have seen this progress. Did they teach boxing in school when you went. Was archery a class you had? How about slaughterball did you ever play that? I know it wasn't a school approved activity but how bout smear the queer?

My godson is in school now. Besides having homosexual pride week where they all wear rainbows stickers and they also teach him that he may be a queer. On top of that any physical activities in physical education that could show the physical dominance of one child over another have been removed. This liberal movement is also the one that's after anything alpha maleish from guns, hunting and rodeo's right on down to dog legislation. These are facts. You never got the chance to experience the world when you weren't being force fed this liberal horseshit. It's not your fault it's just the way it is.

Well, I look at it this way. There's a lot right with the US, and there's a lot wrong with the US. On the bad side, I think the problem isn't so much that we're being "pussified" but that we've become so fat and happy (soft, maybe, so partly what you're saying) and we don't care or pay attention to what's going on around us or what's happening to us. And less and less people think for themselves; we're basically being programmed by TV and radio news conglomerates. I think we're really...comfortable, for lack of a better word, as a group of people.

I also think that we need a complete overhaul of our government, because I think it's corrupt at virtually every level, all this including a re-working and modernization of the constitution, but I don't expect that to ever happen.

That's about as political as I get, though. I don't think anything's going to change until people wake up and start thinking and acting for themselves (I mean normal, everyday people). And I think that while there are problems here, this is still the best place in the world to be. But I've never really been anywhere else for any length of time, so I'm biased.

I'm like "hey what's up Alex" He gives me this blank stare. "I know you from somewhere he says" sounding all stupid. "I would think so" I said, "you worked for me for years" Anyways he goes on to tell me about a trip he took to Brazil. He was loving this salsa bar he was at big time. There were tons of hot women in there. He is telling some guy how much he likes the place and the guy apparently was the owner. He said if you like it so so much why don't you buy it? When he asked how much the guy said 10k. He pulled out his check book right there and bought it. He had lived down there for a few years ever since and said he would never come back to live here. Making great money and has a very hot girlfriend. I'm telling you this chick was smokin and he is a complete dork.

Doesn't sound bad.

I've heard more about Costa Rica as a foreign retirement place than any place other than perhaps Mexico. I guess the government there is a stable democracy, and the country doesn't have the problems that most third-world countries face. It's also a pretty short plane ride back to the States if you need health care or other goodies.

I will very seriously consider a foreign country when I retire. My wife is currently not in favor of it, but I've got another 20 or 25 years to convince her.

The scariest part to me is the corruption in these other countries. I'd hate to plunk down a bunch of money for a house and then just have the government take it so that Pancho and his boys can have a party house with Michael Irvin. Of course, they seize property with increasing frequency here in the U.S. too, using eminent domain, so that's becoming less of a concern for me in moving.

They speak portugese in Brazil.

:spock:

Uh, that would explain a couple things. Wow, I'm a moron.

Do you know anything about gun legislation in South America? I can't find anything on this subject. I know Brazil outlawed them and then changed their mind but I have no idea how it is in different areas.http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/images/clear.gif

No, can't help ya there. I'll let ya know if I come across anything.

Doesn't sound bad.

I've heard more about Costa Rica as a foreign retirement place than any place other than perhaps Mexico. I guess the government there is a stable democracy, and the country doesn't have the problems that most third-world countries face. It's also a pretty short plane ride back to the States if you need health care or other goodies.

I will very seriously consider a foreign country when I retire. My wife is currently not in favor of it, but I've got another 20 or 25 years to convince her.

I think you will see more counties catering to this type of person. As the baby boomers increase in age and look for affordable places to live and bank without being taxed to death. There are many areas that are stable now. I still wouldn't suggest moving all assets out of the country though. You should always keep enough here to cover your ass in case of a major problem. If America continues to try and micromanage everyone's life as I believe they will it will be refreshing to those of us that remember how America used to be to get back to a climate where everyone mids there own business instead of being in everyone else's too. I know I look forward to that as much as anything else.
