Savanna is the place to be ! It's wonderful !
My wife and her girl friends like to travel to Belize and talks about us retiring there. I think the same thing as you, it's filling up too fast with ex-pats right now, same as Costa Rica has already done.

Panama is looking better and better, though.

If Cuba wasn't such a dump, and illegal for US citizens, you could retire there.

A friend of mine who went down there a couple of years ago ran into an American who was illegally living there. He would fly to Mexico once a month to get his disability deposit out of the bank in cash and then fly back to Cuba. He said he was living like a king on about $350 per month and the Cuban government was okay with it as long as he only spent the dollars where they told him to, (approved government vendors) and didn't let any of it get out to the regular people.
