International Retirement Locations for Americans

Indeed, International Living’s just-released Annual Global Retirement Index for 2018 puts Costa Rica in the top spot for the first time. Bali makes its inaugural appearance on the index. And Peru winds up in the top 10 for the first time.

The 2018 index considers 12 categories when ranking the top retirement spots outside the United States and Canada: buying and investing; renting; benefits and discounts; visas and residence; cost of living; fitting in; entertainment and amenities; health care; healthy lifestyle; development; climate; and governance.

The overriding goal of the index, which has been released annually for the last 27 years, is to help retirees pinpoint places where a couple could live comfortably on as little as $1,500 a month.
