How our guides for retirees are born

How our guides for retirees are born

For a few years now, we have been using our ever-expanding network of ambassadors around the world to provide us with the information and field recommendations we need to put together our destination index. When we started our journey we had focused on Thailnadia, Sardinia, Mexico and Brazil (Nadal). This year we talked to more people than ever and gathered enormous amounts of information to decide the best retirement destinations, but we had to suspend Mexico and Brazil for the time being because some of the safety conditions were not guaranteed.

Cost of living

Cost of living

Cost of living is the amount of money needed to cover basic expenses like housing, food, taxes, and health care in a specific place and time frame. Cost of living is often used to compare how expensive it is to live in one city versus another. The cost of living is linked to wages. If expenses are higher in a city, like New York, for example, wage levels need to be higher so that people can afford to live in that city.

Sardinia in Italy is one of the favorite seaside destinations of Europeans. It offers first world, western European standards of living, so there is no question of having to “give up” anything while living here. In fact, you will earn a lot. Outside of the tourist areas, you may need to know a little Italian to get by, but there are many beach areas with English-speaking expat communities.
