Retirement is the ultimate and well-deserved prize for those who have worked all their life; a time to relax and indulge.  For many, this includes living abroad to expand their horizons, get the most bang for their buck, and have better health coverage.

More and more, Latin America is dominating the expat retirement market, and this year is no exception.  According to International Living’s 2015 Retirement Index, four out of five of the top retirement locations are in Central and South America.

Costa Rica, a well-known expat and retiree location, has once again made this elite list, coming in at number 5.  International Living nominated Ecuador as the number one spot, with Panama, Mexico, and Malaysia in second, third, and fourth place.
