The newsletter International Living is out with its latest annual ranking of the best places outside the U.S. for U.S. citizens to retire. The ranking is compiled based on reports from the publication’s writers and reporters. As with all such rankings, what’s good for one person isn’t necessarily good for you. Examine carefully the reasons the place is ranked as it is. Costa Rica tops this year’s list.
But how do you choose? The Retirement Index is still the most comprehensive and in-depth survey of its kind. It’s the best way we know of to sift through the wealth of opportunity the world offers, bring some order, and help you pinpoint the best destination for you.
Annually we reflect on and refine our methodology. This year is no exception, and we’ve made some changes. The research and production of the Global Retirement Index is now an annual rite involving every single member of the International Living team. That team has grown to cover five continents, which means we’re bringing to the Index an ever-greater depth of knowledge.
