For the last few years I've done nothing but talk about moving abroad. Yet, up to now, the only thing that's moved is my mouth. Now I'm retired and for the most part live off the money I get from Social Security. I'm quite sure this doesn't come as some big breakthrough, but in America today, it's very difficult to get by on
Social Security alone.
I am determined to stop making noise, and start taking action. Initially, I was interested in Panama, or Ecuador. Now Nicaragua sounds very appealing to me. The country looks beautiful and appears
to have not yet gained the popularity some other Latin American countries have. From all I've read, it still sounds affordable. I’d love to be in an area where I would find others, like myself, to socialize and spend time with. I am a single women and would be interested in some kind of community environment, if possible.
Nicaragua has mountains and rain forests but for me I'm heading to the beach. Currently, my biggest concern is which beach should I head for? There are beaches on the the ocean and beaches near lakes and lagoons. Sounds like a dream to me. I'm leaning towards the Pacific coast, possibly San Juan Del Sur, but am open to suggestions. I don't have much money, and would mostly be living off off my social security. I guess I would rent until I was certain about staying permanently.
It may not be smart, but once I decide on the area I'm going to, I would like to find a room or whatever to rent. On accomplishing that, I plan to pack myself and my cat up and get out of town(as they say). At least I will have moved away from New York City.
Again, any advice or information would be greatly welcomed.
