People often ask me why I recommend living in Costa Rica, or any foreign country for that matter. There are a lot of Americans living in Costa Rica, both working there for multinational companies as well as a large retirement contingent. Living in a foreign country, whether in Costa Rica or elsewhere offers some serious advantages that many people don't even know about.

Where to retire? As an American baby boomer my choices are nearly endless. Like most others, I want a safe place with great health care options. I want easy access, low airfare and lots of airlines servicing the country. I also want a stable government, a healthy economy and great weather. I am personally planning to spend my retirement years living outside the US, as an expatriate. What's an expatriate you ask? Someone choosing to live outside their home country. Americans are leaving the US in record numbers. The value of the US dollar has been declining as the US continues to print money at a record pace. This dilutes the value of your savings if in dollars.
