Most popular destinations for retirees in South America

Do you have a retirement plan?

Many people have these unaccomplished goals. It is a bucket list of sorts that they take out after retirement. Others try to catch up on what they missed out when they were hidden behind cubicles.

However, when the initial excitement subsides they all start craving a steady routine. They begin to think about how you have all the time in the world but nothing to do with it.

Therefore, several retirees opt for a “life makeover” by moving out and starting fresh. Are you wondering which are the most popular destinations for retirees in South America?



Where do retirees go? If you have money in your pocket then the whole world is your camping ground. However, in this economy, the safest and practical bet is South America.

This is because it is:

  • Affordable
  • Rich in European culture minus the culture shock
  • A vast open terrain of mountains, ridges, valleys, and glaciers
  • Busting with life and activities for you to pursue

Sounds like a good place to settle in right?

To give your plans a jump-start we have listed down the top three places to settle down in South America:


1. Ecuador


This lovely southwestern country is pretty as a picture. Ecuador has the magnificent mountains, streaming rivers, dense Amazon jungles, and warm coastal beaches. It is a breath of fresh air for most of the corporate creatures that end up settling down there.

Moreover, it is really affordable and the bus transit system connects you with all the historical cultural spots and cities. This means you will have easy access to everything the country has to offer.



2. Argentina
