Hey guys!!! My wife and I have been doing combination vacations and scouting missions for the last few years for a retirement place in Central America. So far we have been to Belize and Honduras. We understand that these places are not the US.
We will be retiring in 2016. Both of us are active and open to new places and cultures. Also if the stock market does not crash we should have a decent retirement income.
Our plan was to rent for at least 3-4 months before we make a firm decision on any place we go. And even after that time I don't think buying a house will be in the cards for us. We'd like the ability to move if the urge hits us. Our budget allows for housing (rental), service, utilities, eating, and entertainment of about $3,000 per month.
We would also most likely bring my wife's Subaru down with us. We would also like to travel back to the US twice a year. We are estimating the US travel to be about $4,000 per year.
Can anyone give us some ideas on what life would be like in SJDS for that budget? Thanks so much for the help.
