I never get tired about writing about the accolades that Costa Rica continually receives.
One of my last blogs was about Costa Rica having the lowest Covid mortality rates in the whole world based on this information: https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/data/mortality
Below you will see that the country continues to be by far the best place in world to retire. Everyday I count my blessings and consider myself fortunate for having chosen to live here. What a great country!
The following appeared in the May 21, 2021 edition of Central America’s leading newspaper, the Tico Times newspaper that I write for as a columnist.
International Living, a United States-based publication specializing in — you guessed it — living internationally, named Costa Rica as the world’s best place to retire in 2021.
Costa Rica ranks first on International Living’s list, which also names Panama, Mexico, Colombia and Ecuador in a Latin America-heavy top-10.
Why Costa Rica? According to Kathleen Evans, International Living’s Costa Rica correspondent, the Central American country “attracts millions of visitors and foreign residents throughout the year with its tropical climate; lower cost of living; friendly locals; affordable medical care; vast real estate options; and, of course, its natural beauty.”
“One of the things you hear often from expats is how warm and welcoming the Ticos are,” Evans writes. “You will also find engaging international communities of expats who will help you through the process of acclimation.”
International Living cites a welcoming culture, the more progressive government of President Carlos Alvarado, affordable healthcare and the country’s dozen microclimates as reasons to consider Costa Rica for retirement.
And if you’re sold on Costa Rica, here are the best beach towns for retirees.
