2 Nights In The City Of Eternal Spring—On Me

The first time I ever recommended Americans think about retiring (and investing) overseas was back in 1985.

When I began making these kinds of suggestions, I was sometimes met with suspicion… sometimes ignored… now and then even attacked as part of the lunatic fringe.

The good news is that today the idea of living or investing outside the country where you happened to have been living up until that point is no longer considered crazy.

But about 15 years ago, I made perhaps the boldest recommendation of my career…

A South American gem nothing like you’d expect…

Pretty, pleasant, sophisticated and chic, welcoming and affordable… a place on track to become one of the world’s most sought-after destinations, for both retiring and investing.

I’m talking about Colombia.

The image of Colombia as a dangerous land of cartels is decades out of date.

Pablo Escobar died 30 years ago, and neighboring Venezuela’s instability has led to the best U.S.-Colombia relations in modern history. Colombia now even has the backing of the AARP.

Truth is, Colombia checks every box:

  • “Perfect” weather… it’s mild and spring-like all year long, so no need for heating or air conditioning…
  • World-class health care… 8 of the 35 best hospitals in all of Latin America are located here…
  • A rich cultural scene… complete with theater, orchestra, world famous artists, and exciting events…
  • An affordable cost of living… especially if you are converting from the U.S. dollar, which gives you better than 50% more buying power than just several years ago…
  • Great investment potential… for both the capital gain and the income investor… costs of getting in are low, and demand is growing at an accelerating rate…
  • And the real estate? It’s a screaming bargain, both to buy and to rent…

An outdated stigma lingers, keeping Colombia one of the greatest bargains in the world today.

Which communities make most sense for you, given your personal preferences, priorities, and budget?

Lief and I were so smitten with the way of life on offer in Medellín, Colombia, that, in 2011, we decided to invest in a part-time home of our own here.

Expats have already begun to discover this hidden paradise…

In time, even more people will realize the truth.

Until then, opportunity abounds for those savvy enough to see past the myths to the reality of what this beautiful “City of Eternal Spring” offers today.

Aside from the bargains, the people here are polite and friendly, the streets are clean and safe, and the infrastructure is international-standard.

With its restaurants, cafés, galleries, and shops, this place feels more European than Latin American.

And as a result of all the time we’ve spent in this part of the world, we’ve been able to build an inner circle of trusted advisors, including lawyers, business owners, local professionals, retirees, and expats, with decades of experience living and investing in Colombia.

Today, I’m offering you access to that network of contacts. And even to our personal apartment in Medellín.

Medellín right now is one of Lief and my favorite places to spend time and escape the world.

Thanks to its climate and its elevation, every time we step off the plane here is like entering a wellness zone.

“The countryside reminds me of Ireland,” my mother once said as we drove out of the airport. “It’s like a patchwork quilt in shades of green.

“I told everyone back home how nice it is here after my first visit a couple of years ago. But no one believed me. They just humored me when I tried to describe what it’s really like here.”

Coming to Medellín is like entering a wellness zone…

For the retiree or expat looking for a new life in a cosmopolitan setting, the City of Eternal Spring offers a Euro-chic lifestyle supported by innovative modern comforts.

Medellín has received an international Smart City award for its social, urban, and cultural transformation. The recognition was given out by Netexplo (an international digital area trend observatory sponsored by UNESCO) and today Medellín continues to be an open-minded city committed to continued change, growth, and improvement.

For us, it’s one of the most comfortable and pleasant places we know to settle in, settle back, and simply savor the setting, the circumstance, and the company.

Lief and I have recently put together the most exclusive package of benefits we’ve ever offered in the history of Live And Invest Overseas… we call it our Private Network.

And, should you become a fully fledged Private Network member, Lief and I invite you (along with your guest) to spend two nights a year at our family’s private apartment in Medellín.

You get to choose the dates that suit you best. As long as they’re not already taken, the place is yours.

And, we’ll even introduce you to our personal contacts on the ground—lawyers, businesses, other expats, whatever you need so you can make the most of your trip…

As a Private Network Member, you get to enjoy this view from our apartment in Medellín…

Our Home Is Your Home… And Not Just in Medellín…

Our apartment in Medellín is in the heart of El Poblado, the center of the city, yet—just as my mother testifies—everywhere is green… not only in residential neighborhoods like ours, but along the highways, too. Trees, shrubs, hedges, flowers, and plants of great variety are all around all the time.

This is the most exclusive part of the city, and the most popular with expats. Accommodation is hard to find here these days, because it has become so popular… but you’ll have your own personal base, on us.

Funnily enough, our apartment is just down the street from where Pablo Escobar once lived. It’s an interesting piece of history, but Escobar’s Medellín is long gone. The city has escaped its past and become a true haven…

As you explore Medellín, you’ll find, on one hand, carefully maintained parks surrounded by small colonial structures… and urban chic zones with sushi restaurants, funky bars, contemporary art galleries, vintage clothing stores, and antique shops…

It’s a city that tempts you out-of-doors at all times of day and evening.

I sincerely hope you’ll take advantage of this privilege… at least once. But remember, this invitation isn’t for a once-off stay. As long as you remain a Private Network member, you’ll be entitled to two complimentary nights at our private apartment in Medellín every year.

But if you can’t make it to Medellín…

Lief and I are also opening up our other properties—all over the world—to our Private Network members.

You’re welcome to spend your two free nights a year in any of our properties, anywhere around the world…

You can stay in our spec house at the private gated community we’re developing on Panama’s Sunset Coast, Los Islotes…

If you’d prefer to spend those two nights in downtown Panama City, we have a place for you… or how about sun-soaked Northern Cyprus?

Whenever our homes are available, they’re yours to enjoy—two nights every year.

It’s all included in the biggest VIP package we’ve ever put together.

Until next time,
