This comes as no surprise because year after Costa Rica has been at the top or near the top of the list due to its friendly people, its near perfect year-round weather, unequaled lifestyle, lack of a military, good healthcare, proximity to the U.S., an abundance of activities for expats to stay busy and healthy and so much more. Costa Rica may not be as inexpensive as other so-called expat havens as Mexico, Panama, Colombia (a lot of political unrest lately) or Nicaragua (a dictatorship and that has repeatedly not respected foreigner’s property rights).
“Costa Rica Taiwan, Mexico and Costa Rica have been ranked as the top spots to live and work abroad in 2021, based on their cost of living, ease of settling in and overall quality of life.” Taiwan topped the charts for the third year in a row in the survey of 12,420 expats conducted by InterNations, a Munich-based expat network with about 4 million members. Expats appreciated Taiwan’s medical care, on top of quality of life. A full 96 percent of respondents were happy with the quality of care, compared with 71 percent globally. Expats also reported they were more satisfied with their job security in Taiwan and state of the local economy than their peers in other locales.”
“Expats ranked Mexico and Costa Rica second and third. Both earned high marks for getting settled, which can be a difficult transition in other countries. Some 85 percent of respondents said it was easy to get settled down in Mexico, while 91 percent of expats described Costa Rica’s population as “generally friendly.” Four in five expats in Mexico said they were satisfied with their financial situations, and 84 percent of expats in Costa Rica said their disposable household income was “enough or more than enough” to cover all their expenses.“
By the way, the U.S. was ranked only 34th out of 59 places, largely because of how expats viewed quality of life in America.
Perhaps that is why so many expats are relocating here.
