Best Countries To Retire To In 2014

If you’re planning to retire abroad—because you want to live better for less, diversify your investments or enjoy a greater degree of adventure—you should consider Panama, Ecuador and Malaysia.

Malaysia

In Asia’s top retirement destination, English is widely spoken as the unofficial first language, making it easier for North American retirees to transition. It is also exotic and far away—but “incredibly affordable,” Stevens says. “Talk about a place where you can step up in your lifestyle without blowing your budget! Malaysia is a place where you really can embrace a first world existence for $1,700 a month.”

The country offers a program called “Malaysia My Second Home,” which allows foreigners to stay on a social visa for 10 years, and is renewable. Stevens says if and when you move to Malaysia, a ‘medical tourism’ destination, you can count on excellent care that’ll run you less than half of what you’d pay in the U.S. “Plus, unlike elsewhere in Asia, in Malaysia you can buy property, land, houses and condominiums freehold.”
