Pacific would have to be French Polynesia.. ahh.. love the Marquesas...
Panama as a low budget live aboard is okay if you never want to go anywhere much again... both sides are a pig to get away from.
Caribbean.. the whole lot.. why restrict yourself ..
Personally my ideal would be the Atlantic circle... Carib-Azores-Madiera-Canaries-Cape Verde-Carib... by the time I'm getting boredits time to sail again...

Re: Where do you want to retire in Caribbean or Central or South America?

Would be nice to be able to retire on a boat sometime soon. Does not really matter where. I can rough it out even if I have to do some dumpster diving.

Re: Where do you want to retire in Caribbean or Central or South America?

A bit too far for this old man to sail. Besides, I had so much fun in Marathon Key, Florida it would be difficult for me to take up residence somewhere else. With sugar white sand, palm trees, great beaches, excellent dining, lots of Tiki Bars, lots of blue water, and the cost of living aboard is not as much as it is here in Maryland. What's not to like? Hey, I even get to play music and sing to the ladies in the Tiki Bars and marinas.

Cheers,

Gary

I love the Keys. But to make out dollars stretch out further, I don't mind to live in a foreign country. Learning their culture to enrich our lives and seeing the things that I have not seen. Keys will still there, when I want to visit again.

YMMV

Guanaja is the least expensive of the three Islands. We have a few acres. I'd rather do some actual research on prices before I just pull a number out of my a$$. My wife's family has owned the land for more than 20 years. I do know property taxes are low.
