In many of my blogs I have mentioned that people relocate to Costa Rica for a variety of compelling reasons: the country’s great climate, wonderful people who like Americans, a user-friendly place for Americans, an impeccable international reputation (no bad news), good health care, year-round affordable fruits and vegetables, a stable long-standing democracy (the longest in Latin America) and above all, safety. With regard to the latter, the MAIL Online (Daily Mail) has compiled a list of the safest places to visit around the world, that includes Costa Rica, Iceland, the Bahamas and Malta.
While the British foreign office has warned of high terrorism risk in European countries, Costa Rica is among the safest. The countries with a low threat from terrorism according to latest Foreign Office advice include, in Latin America: Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Cuba, and Chile.
Notice that other so-called retirement havens like Thailand, the Philippines, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Colombia and Ecuador did not make the list.
