International Living was interviewed recently by TIME magazine and they consider that if you are a USA citizen who wants to retire abroad, Cusco is the ideal place for you.
“International Living, a magazine dedicated to retirees going outside of the US, recommended it as being somewhere that delivers maximum picturesque value with a low price tag”, Lonely Planet said.
In addition, Peru is offering a retirement visa for international residents that people can opt for.
According to Lonely Planet, Cusco is the archaeological capital of the Americas, and it’s also the closest city to Machu Picchu, one of the wonders of the world.
“Visitors to the Inca capital get a glimpse of the richest heritage of any South American city, and it thrives with a measure of contradiction. It has a population of about 350,000 people and was designated a Unesco World Heritage site in 1983”, they said about the ancient Inca citadel.
International Living mentions as well that Cusco stands above the rest of the world when it comes to affordability and quality of life, and adding on top of that it is “beautiful in terms of scenery”.
“In the right spots abroad, expats find not only that their dollars stretch, but that they can enjoy a quality of life that’s so much richer than what they could afford at home,” said Jennifer Stevens, executive editor of International Living, cited by Lonely Planet.
They also believe that people can retire in Cusco on $1,700 US dollars per month and still live a high quality of life.
Data from International Living says that Cuzco stands above the rest in the world when it comes to affordability and quality and it is also beautiful in terms of scenery.
