Moving to a new city that you have never been, leaving all your friends and familiar surroundings behind after the age of 65 is not as easy as it sounds. And it gets even more complicated if at this age people have not saves enought money to complement their SS check. For those who think that they can move to Costa Rica, Panama or any other place where their money will strecht longer, the first think they should ask themselves is how they feel about learning a foreign language at the age of 65, if they don't kown a second language yet, adaptation to a new culture, excessive heat and humidity, noise and air pollution, dengue etc Retiring abroad is not for everybody for the same reasons as retiring in Jacksonville, Mississipe is not an option to all americans. I was born and raised in Latin America. I speak three languages however when I retired I chose the USA and I have no regrets.
