By: Simon Hurst

Choosing a place to live after retirement was never been simpler! Would-be retirees have two great options in front of them. They can spend the life in the US or can consider buying a house outside their country.

It is a fact that most people find their budget inadequate for covering costs of quality retirement living options in the United States as the prices have really rocketed these days. Although the housing industry has witnessed a downturn in recent years, it is still expensive. Most Americans now fear that they shall not be able to afford the retirement they have always dreamt of.

It is regrettable that the costs of finer retirement living alternatives supersede the financial resources of the average retiree. As a consequence, many Americans are considering leaving the country to find a retired life which is affordable to them. Thinking outside the box or thinking beyond America simplifies matters as it cuts down drastically on options and expenses. Thinking outside the box means, thinking outside the US.

Of late, the editors of Live and Invest Overseas have noted six different places which are great options for residing after retirement by spending less than $1500 a month. Panama is first on this list meaning Panama is the best place to settle down after retirement.

Panama is passing a golden time with high economic growth and smooth political stability. The first world alike infrastructure and high standards of living shows Panama's strong and thriving economic growth. Over the last few decades, Panama's geographic location attracted retired people from the US and Europe to settle down. The retired people also find it extremely easy to shop in Panama as its local currency is the US dollar.

Panama offers a lot of offshore islands where retired people can relax in the beaches. The country has the most stunning pristine beaches in the world. As tropical climate remains all over the country, Panama is the best choose to enjoy a soothing weather. Additionally, Panama offers a wide range of tourist attractions and gambling facilities.

As Panama is the best place to settle down after retirement, the housing companies of the United States became interested in the discovery of Panamas valued real estate properties. These days, many US based companies are coming in and investing in Panamas real estate sector. However, local real estate companies are very efficient and offer lucrative prices. A retired person can get a luxurious apartment or a single family house with half of the price compared to buying the same in the US.

Overall, Panama has got everything that would be retired people seek before settling down.
