Are These Really the Top Retirement Spots?

Destinations in Belize, Nicaragua and Panama made AARP magazine's latest list of top retirement spots.

The magazine's criteria focused on "mostly warm and sunny, attractively affordable locales with good-to-excellent health care that are hospitable to Americans of retirement age."

That makes many of the choices something of a no-brainer. And maybe the magazine's criteria were not as "exacting" as it claims. Most represent the safe, easy choices beloved by retirees for years.

But the list is still interesting, spotlighting at least a few off-the-beaten locations. The full list includes:
 
  • Buenos Aires, Argentina
  • Corozal, Belize
  • Atenas, Costa Rica
  • Languedoc-Roussillon, France
  • Le Marche, Italy
  • Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
  • Granada, Nicaragua
  • Boquete, Panama
  • Cascais, Portugal
  • Costa del Sol, Spain
