US VI,

rarely thought of, highly prized, and second only to Puerto Rico, of all places.

imagine that, still on US soil, but enjoying all that the Caribbean has to offer, and access by yacht.

Mike,

Why don't you look at old episodes of House Hunters International. Many of the stories involve Americans who are relocating, or looking for second homes before they retire.

House Hunters International : Suzanne Whang : Home & Garden Television

I have friends that relocated to Belize and love it. It does attract alot of hurricans.

Home-Official website of the Belize Tourism Board

Yes, I do watch them to get some ideas.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Relocation

AARP has information on Americans relocating overseas.

I would add to your list access to medical care.

I'm planning to retire to the Caribbean.

Mike

You did not mention when, as you are in the 30's/40's is it a short term or long term plan. Consider political stability and take some vacations in the selected areas to really understand the local life and if it really fits you. Ask also yourself if you really are ready to change your life style and habits, I am sure you already asked yourself those questions, but the real luxe nowadays is time and if you never have time to dedicate to yourself and your dears than any place is the same.

Thought you were leaving in one of the top places in the US.

Sorry for not answering your question, I just wanted to give some feedbacks based on my personal experience and friends.

I turn 34 next week. My goal is to be retired by 40. I use the word "retired" to basically mean that I want to be moved in to my "final destination" home, I want to be "set" financially, and I want to just focus on enjoying everything in life instead of focused on working 12-14 hours a day like I do now. I will still trade but it won't be because I have to in order to pay the bills, it will be because I want to.

I don't want to sound un-American, but this country is just going down the tubes. Part of me wants to stay and try and help prevent that from happening. But the bigger part of me just wants to get the hell out of dodge.

As for social security, etc, my retirement does not count on any of those funds. So I won't be "losing" them. As for medical care, I can't imagine it being any worse than it is here in America.

Perfect attitude in my opinion. 'Retired' is a joke of a word, but doing what you want to be doing when you want to be doing it is key to me.

Having lived in very tropical places for the majority of my life, then it definitely requires some 'testing of waters' to evaluate if you can truly stand that form of lifestyle. It is slower and more complacent, but to me it is refreshing and cleansing but requires the occasional trip to go do some fun stuff. Where I live now is a bit crazy (Concreteville --> Honolulu), but the outer islands are quite nice if you can stand the slow lifestyle and the lack of them actually liking you sometimes because of the culture you were raised in.

Culture is highly misunderstood if you haven't 'lived' in that locale.
