If you are planning to settle down somewhere outside the USA, you must be glad to read the best places to retire in South America. Insider Monkey recently published an article about this topic giving us some very useful tips. Moving to South America is a great idea because there are lots of pros.  If you feel home sick, it’s just a few hours flying and you can stand on your homeland’s ground. On the other hand you can enjoy everything you need: coast, mountains, lakes, rich culture. As for me, I have never planned to move somewhere out of my country, but who knows? Maybe one day I will enjoy my golden years somewhere else.
