If retirement is just around the corner for you, or still ways off, there are many things to consider when it comes to how you’ll spend those important and hopefully adventurous years. Moving abroad to a country like beautiful Nicaragua may be the ticket to a retirement life worth living.

Medical Care in Nicaragua

Let’s face it. Medical expenses in North America are for the most part very expensive, while costs are not improving much, if at all. Without adequate health insurance, a single trip to the hospital can set someone back tens of thousands of dollars, or more! But Nicaragua has some great news!

From doctors and hospital visits to prescription meds, you can cut costs on everything by choosing to have your medical care in Nicaragua. This country has basically everything you’ll require and need, including English-speaking doctors, top-notch medical professionals (many who attended medical school and trained in the US), and completely adequate and extremely comfortable hospitals. Check out my own personal experience, “My Doctor’s Visit to Vivian Pellas Hospital in Managua, Nicaragua."

Cost of Living

Most retirees, as veryone else, want to keep their costs of living as low as possible. So, it's no wonder why Nicaragua is an excellent choice for retirement. In this country, the cost of living is so much cheaper than in North America. Besides healthcare, as mentioned above, groceries, real estate, and even luxuries like a full or part time housekeeper, a cook, or a driver are very affordable and attainable.

As we become older, it seems the cold brutal winters get colder and more difficult to endure. If you’re ready to ditch the winter storms, snow shovels, heavy coats and scarves, and hunkering down indoors during the coldest days, come to Nicaragua. Trade those snow shovels for shovels in the sand.

Gran Pacifica is away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to get to the international airport timely, for a day of shopping and running errands, or a doctor’s visit.

However, if retirement is a ways away, you may consider purchasing a property now, enjoy it as a vacation home for a while, and then take the plunge there full-time once you retire. There are even options for rental income if you’re interested in renting out your property while you aren’t there.
