A Worldwide Guide to Retirement Destinations
This guide provides information on retiree destinations around the world, all based on research conducted by the authors and hands-on testimonies from each region. It consists of 10 chapters, starting with a general overview of retiree migration patterns, which examines the factors retirees consider when deciding on a destination. The following nine chapters each cover one particular region of the world that is attracting retirees.
Mini-profiles of retiree migrants in each chapter include anecdotes and experiences from diverse destinations. The reader will hear, for example, from an American luxuriating on a Spanish island; a Brit building homes in the mountains and coast of BC, Canada; a New York filmmaker reinventing in Cuenca, Ecuador; and British skiers retiring to “encore careers” in the French Alps. Chapters also include “destination profiles”—short vignettes that analyze retirement from the destination perspective, again based on personal interviews with key stakeholders from a national, regional and local perspective.
