We have been looking at property for a couple years but we will most likely live in our decided destination for a few years before buying. We will continue to look at property but the rent is cheap so there is no hurry
Good luck fellow adventurers

No concern about real estate appreciation while you are deciding?

Mike

It is a concern and I will jump on the right deal if it comes along.

Making the right choice in property is more important to me than price. We are looking at land and plan to build.
So there is a lot of effort to putting it all together. And the process will take years.

I also own a house on Long Island that I plan to hold on to. If appreciation happens I will catch it there.

Mr.You,

Out of all the English-speaking countries in Central/South America and Caribbean, Turks & Caicos (one country) is the one with the lowest crime rate and has fewer encounters with major hurricanes, that's why I it's my top choice in the region. Also, it's relatively easily to get a residence visa, here's a good link describing the requirement:
Immigration and Residency in Turks & Caicos Islands

Here's their official government page on immigration:
Turks and Caicos Islands Immigration Board at Turks and Caicos Islands Immigration Board

North Providenciales is the most expensive, upscale, and somewhat safer. Properties outside of the main island (Providenciales) is much cheaper, and the investment requirement (in order to obtain a residence visa) there is much lower than the one in main island. Like many Caribbean countries, T&C has lots of mosquitoes, so you need to be prepared for that.

You can learn more about T&C at:
Turks and Caicos Tourism, Hotels, Resorts, Restaurants, All Inclusive, Vacation Villa Rentals, Real Estate, Dining Guide, Weather, Excursions, SCUBA Diving, Shopping, Tours etc.

Tourism info:
Turks and Caicos Islands Travel Guide - VirtualTourist
Turks & Caicos - Travel Guide, Info & Bookings ? Lonely Planet

Property info:
Turks and Caicos Real Estate :: Turks and Caicos Property :: Providenciales

American Virgin Islands


try there also, and guess what?

you're existing residency visa(s) work there also!, just your state license is required (preferrably the newer certified licenses), which also allow travel throughout the Caribbean countries w/o passport.....

This article looks at some good locations.
BBC - Capital - The best places to retire for the adventurous
What interested me most was the tax situation Nicaragua. It looks like a good set-up for a trader : The Nicaraguan government also operates a generous retiree benefit programme, with tax incentives for expats, most notably tax exemptions on outside-of-country earnings. The key requirements are for applicants to be 45 years of age or older and to have a stable monthly income of at least $600.

I was there many years ago-- the early 90's--and it was an adventure, but not a desirable place to live. I assume things have improved a lot since. Any word from someone who lives there/been there recently ?

Some ideas in this article for potential ex-pats --- it includes Mexico and Ecuador :

BBC - Travel - Want to move abroad? Try here

Malta has no taxes on capital gains earned abroad --- sounds like an attractive place for futures traders.

It's been a while. This is Mike Winfrey. Hope you remember me. But won't be offended if you don't. Looks like you made the move to Ecuador. That's why I'm writing. Wondering how you like it and wondering what you can offer as to experiences. Just starting the research and thought of you. I've done a bit of research on the web but it'll help more I think to hear from first hand experience. Anything you offer is appreciated. I intend to buy property so I can develop the land the way I want.

Hope you and your dogs are doing well and that your hand is better than you expected.

Thanks
Mike

Ps. Might be best to email.
