International Master-Planned and Gated Communities

There is something intriguing about life outside of the United States. If you’re looking for a retirement destination or a second home location, international options deserve to be looked into. Though moving anywhere new is an adventure, creating a life in a different country takes that adventure to another level. So, before you jump on the next plane, take a minute to decide if this is what you’re looking for in this next chapter of your life. Learn about what makes international living a great contender so you can make your ideal living dreams come true.

The Allure of International Living

First things first: the destination. With some of the best retirement communities in countries like Mexico, Dominican Republic, Panama, Belize, the Bahamas, and Costa Rica, the draw to an exotic location is sometimes hard to ignore.

  • Mexico has beaches, warm weather, and incredible archaeological sites. A low cost of living also makes this a desirable destination.
  • The Dominican Republic’s beaches, with its white sands and crystalline waters, are highly regarded. Its tropical climate soothes the soul.
  • Panama has its beaches, too, but its cosmopolitan capital and its accepted currency, the US dollar, make it convenient and appealing.
  • Belize provides lush jungles and the Caribbean Sea as a backdrop. Explore the ancient ruins and immerse yourself in its rich culture.
  • The Bahamas can lure you in with its clear waters, a tropical climate, and its unique attraction of swimming pigs.
  • Costa Rica is a stunning natural paradise bustling with wildlife, a warm tropical climate, and other features that make it a relaxing destination.

Why Choose an International Community?

Locales aside, international destinations offer retirement communities with resort living amenities. Amid stunning views, you’ll find golf communities with challenging courses. If you’re looking for different floor plans or home types, master planned communities offer selections to choose from, including homesites, condos, and townhomes. Plus, you have the ability to live comfortably on a budget, thanks to lower cost of living and certain tax-friendliness of some places.

Some Things You’ll Need - and Need to Know

When looking for a retirement or second home location, researching the types of communities and the activities available in the broader areas is important. We all know that we can’t just hop on a plane, land in our chosen location, and automatically call it “home.” There are essential steps to take to ensure you can properly live internationally, and that includes applying for visas. Make sure you’re able to get quality healthcare, too; you may need to think about getting health insurance to cover any medical needs. Other things to take into consideration are weather, safety, and travel.

Living and enjoying life in the Southern Region of Portugal – Algarve is a delightful experience that combines the best of both worlds: a relaxed, sun-kissed lifestyle and a vibrant, culturally rich environment. Here’s a description of what it’s like for people who call the Algarve their home:

Imagine waking up to the gentle rustle of palm trees and the scent of saltwater in the air. The region’s Mediterranean climate ensures that sunny days are the norm, allowing you to embrace outdoor living throughout the year.

Your days in the Algarve are filled with endless possibilities. You can start by savoring a leisurely breakfast at a seaside café, where the freshly baked pastries are as warm as the smiles from the friendly locals. As the day unfolds, you might choose to explore the stunning coastline, where golden beaches stretch as far as the eye can see, offering a serene backdrop for swimming, surfing, or simply basking in the sun.

For those with a penchant for culture, the Algarve offers a treasure trove of historic towns, each with its own unique charm. Stroll through cobbled streets lined with colorful buildings, discover ancient castles perched on hilltops, and immerse yourself in the rhythm of traditional Portuguese festivals and fado music that resonates with the soul.

Food lovers will find themselves in culinary paradise, with fresh seafood served at quaint beachside shacks and Michelin-starred restaurants alike. The Algarve’s cuisine is a tantalizing blend of flavors, where grilled sardines, succulent octopus, and aromatic cataplana dishes take center stage. And don’t forget to pair your meals with a glass of locally produced wine or a refreshing sip of medronho, the region’s famous firewater.

The Algarve isn’t just about leisure; it’s also about well-being. Spend your afternoons exploring nature reserves, hiking along rugged cliffs, or teeing off on world-class golf courses.
