The 5 Best Places to Retire on the Beach in 2016

WorldTops  introduce this article ‘ The 5 Best Places to Retire on the Beach in 2016 ‘

Perhaps the most common retire-overseas daydream is a new life at the beach. Mountain lifestyles and city living can be great options, but the promise of a beachfront retirement draws many people abroad. If you, like so many others, dream of a coastal retirement, here are five of your best choices.

Playas, Ecuador

Playas, Ecuador. Thanks to its tucked-away position in the Gulf of Guayaquil, which protects it from the open Pacific and the cold waters of the Humboldt Current, the waters at Playas are warm and calm year-round. The area boasts 320 days of sunshine annually (again thanks to its position in the gulf). This is an important distinction along Ecuador's coast, most of which is overcast for a good portion of each year.

The cost of real estate is also affordable. A two-bedroom beachfront home in a private community can cost as little as $139,000

Viña del Mar, Chile

Viña del Mar, Chile. Viña del Mar came into its own as a resort in the 1920s. Today, it's Chile's most popular seaside destination, drawing people from around the country as well as a large number of international visitors.

At the current exchange rate between the U.S. dollar and the Chilean peso, you can own a two-bedroom condo in a full-amenity building with an ocean view for less than $200,000

Santa Marta, Colombia

Santa Marta, Colombia. Everyone has heard of Cartagena, Colombia, this country's best known destination. However, just 150 miles up the Caribbean coast from Cartagena is another coastal city, Santa Marta, that offers sandy beaches, calm waters and excellent diving. The city also has an upbeat and energetic culture, warm weather year-round and diverse and attractive retirement lifestyle options. Cartagena is for tourists. Santa Marta is for living.

The currently strong dollar (the greenback is at an all-time high versus the Colombian peso) means you could buy in one of Santa Marta's top neighborhoods, in a building with ocean views and direct ocean access, for as little as $125,000.

Mazatlán, Mexico

Mazatlán, Mexico. Mazatlán is an ideal choice for your beachfront retirement. Its large and restored colonial historic center is both an appealing place to spend time and very affordable. There are 20 miles of beautiful beaches, and great options for restaurants and cafés. The atmosphere is more Mexican than many of Mexico's coastal cities, where foreigners can dominate the culture. There's also easy access to the United States. Mazatlán is 1.6 hours away by air or 13 hours by car.

You could own in front of Mazatlán's best beach and boardwalk for as little as $250,000 or just outside of town on the ocean for as little as $160,000.

Natal, Brazil

Natal, Brazil. Natal is noted for its miles-long crescent beach, protected by a giant dune that shelters it from the onshore winds. The adjacent waters are calm, clear, warm and shallow. The cafés, restaurants and nightlife of Natal are renowned throughout Europe and Brazil. And thanks to the weak Brazilian real, property prices are attractive.

Natal qualifies as one of the world's best beachfront bargains. Thanks to the current exchange rate, you could own an ocean-view apartment in Ponta Negra for as little as $85,000.
