    There are more than several places in the world with first-rate health care, in fact better health care then here in the States; and a lot less expensive than here in the United States of Gouge.

    In fact, the USA routinely ranks pretty poorly in global rankings of health care systems. For example, WHO rated the USA in 35th slot.

    Tellin' ya mon, the best years of this country are behind us, and we're sliding down a slippery slope where democracy goes out the window.

    I have two kids, my daughter just started going to Salisbury MD for college, my son 16 still in HS so I could not leave to the south pacific.. The only other thing that worries me about PR

    $23 K worth of debt for every person on the island.. kind of scary. Unless of course they become a state! I've been there over 40 times in the last 30 years sure I wish I bought back in the late 80's but who knew .. What about Northern FLA never been any good? say Palm Beach..

    I lived in north Fla in Jax beach but it's changed since I was there in the early eighties. I always liked going to ST. Augustine for a change of pace and liked it. I live In Wilmington now and the winters can be cold. I would rather live in Carolina Beach just south of here if I had my way...Wrightsville beach, the beach at Wilmington is a can of worms...IMO

    I actually met him down there with his family a few years back... He ripped, his wife was cool and his 3-4 year old fishing by the rocks. Seemed like a cool dude.

    It's a good spot because the waves are good (sometimes great), most speak English and it's tropical.

    For some reason, this comes to mind: The guy from the FuelTV surfing show, Shayne McIntire, resides in PR with his family. He's from SoCal. Must be pretty good waves & pretty good living in PR if a global surf traveler picked that as his settle-down spot.

    Yes, of course.

    But that's like comparing The Mayo Clinic with Wiregrass Medical Center in Geneva, Alabama.

    BTW, just in case anyone is in total awe of USA medical care:
    "Hospital errors are responsible for 146,000 deaths per year, and 400 per day, in America."

    PR is my vote. Even in the 'flat' summer there are waves to be had on the north and eastern shores. San Juan gets super good. Wilmington in summer, winter in PR - not a bad trade-off

    You'd really enjoy North or Central FL, but lots of people retire here, i'd pick PR if it were me, hands down, but I live here so I would want a change of pace

  9. Why not rent out the property in wilmington, use the extra/freed up money to hang around pr, if you get sick of pr leave, go somewhere else?

    I agree with whoever mentioned St. Augustine, lived there for quite some time, really enjoyed it... and its cheap. Then again its a younger town, and areas are kinda crazy sometimes.

    I vote pr. I think jacksonville, st. Augustine might be cool. My aunt lives there. Seems like a cool place.
