I have dreams of Bali.

Retirement? such a scary thought, but I plan on living out the rest of my (hopefully many) days sailing in the gulf, and Caribbean. I expect to sell the business in the next six to eight months, and then trailer the boat south, commit social suicide and become reborn as a sailor!

No one has mentioned on the hook at Cape Horn?
Count me in as another vote for the Keys. That water is beautiful. Public transit runs all the way from Marathon to Key West- the best of both worlds.

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

Danmed! For a minute there I thought I almost qualified for the job, Aaron. I still own a few guns, including a Remington 1148 12GA automatic, I speak English, a little Spanglish, lived with a Cajun gal for a couple weeks when I was young and single, I own a 5-cell Maglite flashlight, and can still handle most power and sailboats. Then I came to the part that said young and single - well, everyone has a fantasy.

The things are ridiculously cheap. Car rental from major US rental companies is $6 a day. Gigantic Prawn (8" long) is $7 a pound. Panama City is extremely metropolitan and yet the old city is a real charmer. A taxi tour you around is 7$ an hour.

I am going back there next week and my wife will fly in to join me to tour around Panama and check out some of the real estate.

What is your plan?
Maybe Paraguay would be worth considering. Great neighbors.

I never said young, just single. Seems like every time I hire a caretaker, he has a wife, a girlfriend and 3 and 1/2 kids from 4 different dads living with him.

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

Aaron, Bali turned out to be one of the great disappointments of our travels, along with Bora Bora. Both are very touristy and crowded, especially Bali. In both cases the people were not as friendly as in neighboring islands. Perhaps the message is that if a place was magical enough in the past to become iconic it won't be like that today. The truly neat places aren't as famous.
