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.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
