What is it like to retire in Chile?

Answer this Question

We asked retirees what it is like retiring in Chile. They said...

"Most Americans will have the financial resources to retire in Chile. A stable economy, a functioning democracy, a feeling of security in most places are great attractions. If you leave the city, the beach and the mountains beckon. However, the bureaucracy is intolerable (15 minutes to mail a package in the P.O. with 4 forms - almost impossible to get a driver's license, anything involving paperwork, forget it). The people are suspicious and unfriendly (except to their friends), and their class prejudice seems worse than American racism. I've cocooned in my home in the south, enjoying a comfortable life and the beautiful country (also with internet and well provisioned malls), but don't aspire to much else. There's no culture, night life, entertainment or possibility of meeting new people (Santiago is better for all of these things, but more expensive). If you're happy just living with your things (or lucky enough to afford to live in the nice parts of Santiago), Chile is a good choice to retire with a moderate income," commented one expat who made the move to Chile.
