Anywhere in Chile or Argentina would fit most of your criteria. Buenos Aires is seeing alot of Americans, Canadians, etc relocating there due to the cost of living taking the account of the Peso vs. Dollar. Also like the U.S. you have a diverse climate and topography and not to mention all the amenities of a first world country to boot.

Plus unlike Brazil or Mexico you don't have to deal with out of control crime.

PLENTY of Americans retire in the Philippines or Thailand. My last trip to the Thailand I went to the US Consulate in Chiang Mai and the waiting room was packed full of retirees; I was the only one still working in the real world. Depending on where, it can be cheap to live in the Philippines and Thailand. And you have world class hospitals in Bangkok and in Manila. In Thailand, I'm not a big fan of Bangkok and I'm a little leery of being close to the coast (tsunami warning and all); I like Chiang Mai. In the Philippines, I'd get away from the heat and humidity of Manila for the pine trees and mountain landscape of Baguio. Or perhaps check out Cebu which is a lot less hectic, has nice beaches (and easy access to nice beaches). There is some political turmoil here and there but nothing like Myanmar. There is some issue with islamists but only in the southern section (parts of Mindanao/Philippines and in Thailand on the Thai/Malaysia border) but if you avoid those areas you'll be all right.

I'd say Jersey in the channel islands, it has a fantastic climate, it's a tax haven, it's close to France & a half hour ferry ride to the UK. Oh & they speak English.

Foreigners can live on Jersey? I thought it was pretty much English-only, with not much room to have a house or anything?

Would one be able to own property there?

Jersey - no you can't own property there unless you have been legally resident for 12 years - presumably in a rented apartment - and working with a permit if you are not an EU citizen. The other channel island, Guernsey allows anyone to buy property but it's at central London prices and you would still need a visa of some kind in order to live there. As offshore financial centres and tax havens, these places are millionaires playgrounds along with the Caymen Islands etc.

Low cost but still in europe, so there are parts that are not run down and look nice but food and rent is a fraction of the cost it is in america. Think of moving from new york to down south but with being able to live of $30 US for 1-2 week

Belize -St. Pedro. Only way to get there is by boat or plane. Several years ago a condo was only 40,000.00 american dollars. Good luck

I wonder what part of EE (eastern Europe) you have on mind. The part of EE, that I know is now expensive as much as western Europe.
Comparing EE with The US (financially), the only good part in EE (from what I know) is the health insurance.
