They all stick together in one section generally (El Poblado Medellín). Bogotá might have more foreigners living there, but it doesn´t feel that way at all. There´s no contrived sense of their presence. Tourism is catching on, and places like Parque Tayrona and Salento may seem totally overrun, but...I have yet to meet people who say, ¨Gosh I am sick of these tourists and all the money they´re bringing in!!¨

Not to get off topic, but I found Taiwan to be amazing. People were so helpful and polite, the food is amazing, the infrastructure is amazing at least up north. It would definitely be my top choice to relocate.

Taiwan has quite ugly cities and it seems every year it´s affected by a hurricane or an earthquake or both. On top of that, the country faces an uncertain political future with only a handful of countries recognizing Taiwan as a separate country from China (while the rest of the world basically accepts that Taiwan is a rebellious province of mainland China). Add to that a very high cost of living and a difficult language for many people from the West (Europe + Americas) to learn properly. Last but not the least, Taiwan is a long flight away, not good for people with family in their home countries and that like to visit them often or receive their visits frequently.

I have read comments online and there does seem to be some complaints about expats in Medellin. Specially expat men.

Mexico's El Bajio is my drug !!!!! Guanajuato and the Cervantillo, the Tunnels and the dogs barking echoing all over the City and bouncing off The Hills at night.

The Magic of the Colonial Cities !!!

Keep me as far away from expats as possible. They're the same in every corner of the world - bunch of obnoxious, self-entitled, stuck up people.

Personally, I'd retire to Ecuador, Mexico, Colombia, certain areas of Panama.
Costa Rica is probably the most "expensive" country to retire to.
Guatemala would be an interesting choice - lots of growth if your looking to start a new career in a business.
Nicaragua, Honduras and El Salvador need to settle down, get more safe for everyone - expats and locals.
been to all of them. Feel free to text me if you have any questions.
Cheers,
John
