I would say Panama. I've never been outside the United States and Europe.

In latin America I have only been to Ecuador, twice. Nothing really to recommend it which is why we decided not to retire there.

We spent a day wandering around Lima Peru. Can't recommend it either.

So at least you can take both of those off your list.

As an American, I can say that I've never been especially thrilled with any place in the US either, corportization has pretty much big-boxed and strip-malled the entire country into an uninteresting city/burb/subub/exurb. It's all the same everywhere except for local topography.

I'm honestly sitting here trying to think of a place in the the US that gets my juices flowing. Nothing comes to mind.

Can you share the aspect of Ecuador that you don't like? I am curious why tons of American want to retire thefe.

Bolivia is fascinating, and not "americanized". Quebec City is great, too.
