International Living names Costa Rica as third-best retirement destination in 2020

January 6, 2020

International Living, a United States-based publication specializing in — you guessed it — living internationally, has named Costa Rica among its best places to retire in 2020.

Costa Rica ranks third on International Living’s list, behind Portugal and Panama, and ahead of countries including Colombia, Mexico, Spain and France.

Why Costa Rica? According to Kathleen Evans, International Living’s Costa Rica correspondent, the Central American country “attracts visitors with its tropical climate; low cost of living; top-notch, affordable medical care; bargain real estate; and natural beauty.”

“A couple can live a comfortable, but not necessarily extravagant life here for around $2,000 a month,” Evans writes.

International Living cites a welcoming culture, the more progressive government of President Carlos Alvarado, affordable healthcare and the country’s dozen microclimates as reasons to consider Costa Rica.
