Panama: Isnald style living for retirement?:

My wife and I are searching for places to retire in the Caribbean. We have a few requirements. We need somewhere with a reasonably flat topography because I am a paraplegic who is a full time wheelchair user so the less hills the better. We like the water and would like to live on a sea or ocean that has few waves, lots of fish, and coral reefs close to the shore so that we can simply flop into the water and go snorkeling. We have been to the east end Grand Bahama twice (Pelican Point) and we like it there but Grand Bahama seems a bit run down and there are not many expats there. We are going to Abaco in September and I think we might like it better there but I have noticed the prices and cost of living is high in the Bahamas and this is something to consider if retiring. After doing some research online I think my next adventure might be to the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico on the Caribbean side. Also the island called Utilla in Honduras looks interesting. Does anyone have any recommendations for a place to retire either in the Bahamas or elsewhere in the Caribbean? Remember we are looking for flat topography so this rules out some of the volcanic islands. And if the people speak English that is a plus as I do not know Spanish although I am not against learning it if I found a perfect place that was less expensive that the Bahamas...? I like the thought of an island... The Bay Islands in Honduras look interesting. Are there many or any Expats there? What about Antigua? I just found a place called Culebra and Vieques Puerto Rico that looks nice but the people all speak only Spanish there it seems.. Any suggestions? Oh we are American by the way. If there were at least a few American Expats there I know my wife would enjoy that... But I do not want to live in an expat "community" and certainly not a condo. We are not a big fan of tourists so I really do not want to live where a bunch of people are coming and going such as a cruise ship port. One last thing to consider is taxes? I plan to still run my business in the USA from afar so a favorable tax situation would be nice. Thank You for your help and have a good day!! Cody and Kate

Mexico: Caribbean side Expat Communities?:

My wife and I have been searching for a place to retire in the Caribbean and have been to several more expensive places such as the Bahamas which we liked but is perhaps slightly too expensive for us. Now we are thinking that the Carribean coast of Mexico might be a good spot. WE are not a fan of huge crowds but some Expats and a few restaurants/bars would be nice. Are there any Expat communities on the Caribbean side of Mexico? Coastal or even an hour or so inland would be fine as long as we were driving distance to the water. Any thoughts? Thank You!! Dylan

Belize: SAFE ROUTE DRIVING TO BELIZE FROM TEXAS !:

Can someone tell me how to "opt out" of this discussion? I am not sure why but I keep getting an email each time someone posts something even though this is not me thread. I must have accidentally hit the wrong box. Is there any way to stop these emails?
