3. Philippines

Long friendly towards Americans, the country also has excellent healthcare options. It’s only third on our list because getting to the US and back takes time. Incredible food and value for the dollar are amazing. You can live like a King or Queen for $1500US a month.

Best places to live in the PH ranked by EXPAT exchange.

Official tourist sites and destinations are here. 

2. Mexico

Regardless of the narco’s reputation, Mexico is an incredible choice and probably safer than most parts of Los Angeles and Chicago.

Significant areas to consider are Mexico City which, at over 7,000 feet of elevation, has quite a mild climate year-round, incredible food options, museums, and markets. Additionally, it is easy to get anywhere as its served by a significant international airport.
