Re: Where do you want to retire in Caribbean or Central or South America?
No, you need to have a caretaker. Someone to watch the house when you are not there. It's symbiotic, they get a free place to live and farm and you get security and help getting things accomplished. We pay him the going rate which is less than 300 a month. they have a humble but typical house up the hill from us looking down on our property. he lives there with his wife and a couple of kids, 2 dogs and a few cats, a couple of chickens and a rooster running around. You won't find a property there with no on sight caretaker. When I finish my dock and boat house I'll hire some one to sleep down there as well. I want to relocate our dive boat there this year. That plus my sailboat which is there now and our kayaks and skiffs, I need a night guard down there
