For Britons thinking of emigrating to avoid the effects of Brexit, Europe may well not be on the cards after the end of March.

British retirees forced out of their European havens as well as those still in the UK who’re fearing cost of living rises due to Brexit may well be advised to look for the good life across the Atlantic Ocean rather than across the English Channel. For many decades, Latin and Central America have been considered to be the exclusive haunts of economic refugee retirees from the USA, but the many favourite destinations are happy to welcome expats of any and all nationalities.

Costa Rica is known as one of the most-loved expat havens in Latin America, as it embodies most if not all the qualities sought by expatriate arrivals. Modern-day amenities, tropical weather, a peaceful lifestyle, beautiful natural surroundings and, most importantly, a very reasonable cost of living are Costa Rica’s strengths, with world class beaches the bonus. Nosara town in Guanacaste region is one such expat haven, known for its great choice of beaches and its surfing, fishing and kayaking opportunities. It’s also famed for being the annual destination of thousands of sea turtles, arriving to lay their eggs in the soft sands.

If an affordable, healthy lifestyle is your aim, there are plenty of opportunities for exercise and, for those recovering from the stress of everyday life in the West, there are yoga studios, meditation groups and eco-tourism trips into the spectacular countryside or along the coastline with its mangrove forests. Nosara welcomes expatriates from across the world and has long-established expat communities ready to help newcomers settle in. For those looking for an extended, comfortable lifespan, the region has a high concentration of citizens over 100 years old, mainly due to their diet and love of family life.
