What is Your Ideal Retirement Spot?

It takes more than a beautiful beach to make your golden years golden. Choosing your retirement destination requires careful and thorough consideration. Investment advisors will encourage you to look at taxes, climate, recreation, cost of living and – of course – the housing market.

Taking into account such factors, the U.S. News & World Report recently named Panama as today’s No.1 destination to retire in their recent article entitled “18 Best Places to Retire Overseas.”

As U.S. News & World Report writer Kathleen Peddicord says, “The ideal retirement spot is a place where you can live a rich life filled with friends, travel, discovery, physical and intellectual distractions, and opportunities for growth. A super-low cost of living is great, but more important is the quality of life your retirement budget is buying you.”

Panama meets all of these criteria and more. Not only is it well known for its gold standard retirement benefit program, Panama’s currency is the U.S. dollar, eliminating any exchange rate risks. Panama offers the best of both worlds with gorgeous weather and beaches as well as a city rich in culture, history and entertainment. On top of all this, Panama is perfect for easy traveling as it continues to be a hub that is easily accessible from anywhere in the Americas and Europe.

Ocean Reef Islands in Oct. 2011 Issue of Ocean Home Magazine

Paradise seekers will want to snatch the latest issue of Ocean Home: The Luxury Coastal Lifestyle Magazine to see the stunning four-page spread on Panama’s newest residential and commercial development. Ocean Home writer Brianna Lapolla wrote a fantastic piece on the Ocean Reef Islands luxury complex and the powerful duo behind it all: Grupo Los Pueblos and Bob Hurwitz. Here were some of our favorite quotes from the article “Ocean Reef Islands: The first man-made, urban islands in Latin America.”

“It’s not every day that your dream oasis becomes a reality, so perfect that you’d swear it was tailored to your every desire.”

“Because of Panama’s perfect entanglement of modern and vintage structures, timeless tradition, and breathtaking natural wonders, there is no question as to why the concept for Ocean Reef Islands emerged from the Panama Sea.”

“Quality of life on the Ocean Reef Island is above and beyond all expectations, desires, and fantasies of even the most discerning residents.”

“With all the privacy of a desert island, but all the indulgence of a five-star resort, this is exactly the place for those with exquisite and glamorous living prerequisites.”
