What do you do when you want something more and different than youre getting in your home country? For an increasing number of 60+ women, the answer is to move overseas.
According to the data we collected through our website, Best Places in the World to Retire, there can be a better life out there, if you are willing to uproot and reinvent yourself as an expat in Belize, Nicaragua or Panama.
In addition to the over 5,000 answers and 200 stories on our website, in early July, we released Expats: Expectations & Reality, the first in a series of studies reporting the results of a survey of expats, mainly from the U.S. and Canada and living in Panama, Belize and Nicaragua. For Sixty and Me, we broke out the results just for women, 45 and older (the closest age category we had).
The following are seven smart and reasonable aims these women happily pursued in these small Central American countries.

For example, 85.3% of senior women sought a simpler, less stressful life, while 64.1% wanted a more romantic, exotic, or adventurous life than they had in their home country. Playing against type, 30.8% more women than men wanted a less materialistic life.
The survey is worth reading. Lots of infographics to make it pleasant.
Meanwhile, men head to the Philippines and Thailand.
Can you ping preppers for me? These countries are ones I am researching as bugout places.
I have that discussion with my husband regularly, but that’s because my parents have a beach house there. Besides he already has his “Miss Philippines” right at home;)
There’s a FReeper with a beach house in Davao.
The economy has a lot of ocean crossing sailboats out there looking for owners.
Yeah. They say they want less materialism. Wait until it actually happens.
Mrs. Gamecock and I have been having this conversation as of late.
If things here don’t get turned around we just may bug out.
Broads moving abroad?
Dames at sea?
I agree with you, but the husband has different ideas.
I’ve heard some things about men seeking to move to the Philipines or Thailand. And their reasons often revolve around the girls to be found in other countries. Some men are so frustrated with American women and their demands/behaviors, that they seek such connections overseas.
There are numerous websites for meeting foreign females .
This subject may shock some women. But men can be attracted to females who have been raised in other cultures, and behave differently with the man in their lives. This is s very powerful motivator for a man, meaning the type of relationship he has in his life.
My wife and I went to International Living Conference in Cancun a few months ago....we’re booked for 11 days in Nicaragua this November for an exploratory trip....business opp, ministry opp (we already run a non profit ministry in Uganda) and living / retirement opp.
Nicaragua is the new Costa Rica. First world health care available at a tenth the price....can live like a king (and queen) for 30K a year. Can live well for less.
There are plenty of places to retire in the US.
I suspect the article is nothing more than an advertisement.
I heard it is nice living there.
What options are you looking at?
Less materialism is only good when it is a choice.
