Hi!
Im interested in finding a place to live simple, close to nature, but also being relative close to some city for some activities.


Requirements, but not set in stone.
* Next to a warm ocean with tropical climate
* Be able to grow food most of the year
* Nice, active, outgoing people
* At least semi - cheap to buy land and live there


Ideas
Hawaii, Costa Rica, Brazil, Australia. Countries or specific places would be much appreciated.

There is a lot of Australia that would fit those criteria, but I would avoid coastal Northern Territory or northern coastal Queensland due to the prevalence of cyclones and the severe 'wet' season. For townsfolk their impact is mitigated to a large extent, but if you're living off grid and away from a major town or city, they could be major issues for you to have to deal with.

Thailand and Sri Lanka would be at the top of my list. If I had the resources to do so, I would gladly move to either one.
Ecuador, Panama, Nicaragua, and the Philippines also meet all of your criteria.
If even somewhat semi-cheap is important to you, I would remove Hawaii and Australia from your list.

Thanks for those insights! Do you have some places you would suggest? I know bargara and bundenburg are good for growing but not much happening around there. Im thinking of a place, maybe 30 min away from something similar to the gold cost or sunshine coast where people are active.

Interesting, im in Rio now and thought of going to check out salvador and fortaleza but never heard of Aracaju. How do you think it differs from other places in Brazil?

Ive been to most of those countries, they are nice, but I prefer more active and sporty cultures for the long term.

You gave me the impression that were looking for a small place. Aracaju isn't too small, but it's not as big as Salvador or Rio.
But if you're in Rio and are looking for a rural site, there are a lot of places that you can have a land around it. Cachoeiras de Macacu is is very pleasant place, for exemple.
