Newbie here - just starting to wrap my head around moving to paradise (or at least close) in retirement (which is still too far away) possibly Mexico, Central America, South America. International Living Magazine got me started thinking more seriously about this (tip of the hat to aggressive marketing on their part) but in my early days of poking around this site I've seen a few disparaging comments toward the magazine. To be fair, a few good remarks as well.

What is the prevailing opinion of IL Magazine? Good resource or not?

Obviously I will use many, many sources over the next several years as I ramp up planning and thinking about it all but don't want to get off to a bad start with a source many may not like.

Thanks in advance.

They are essentially trying to entice you to attend their events. They do have helpful articles about various locales around the globe. You can pluck the nuggets of information and ignore the rest. They also tend to make countries seem more affordable than they actually are.

If you take their magazine as simply being a suggestion as to places you should do additional research on. I recall its articles were always just too generic, little more than tourism brochures. It seemed designed for the person who wanted live in an expat resort somewhere.
