Been there, done that. They don't like US there. You may find it difficult in the cities. Traffic is so bad, it took 2 hours to go 2 miles. Extreme poverty alongside wealth, and a LOT of crime. No snow, but the typhoons will get you. Must like bugs, snakes, rats.

Planning on moving to the Philippines in January because of the low cost. It's hot, no snow ever. On my small social security check and 401K it may be the pefect solution. Entertainment will consist of beaches, jet skiing, walking around and observing the people in different cities and towns. Of course the larger cites have movies, huge malls, cheap massages, etc. The healthcare is cheap but the best is found in private hospitals. Dental is extremely cheap. Anyway if the fun fizzles in a few years Thailand and Malaysia are nearby.

I’ve always wanted to live  in Washington State as my hearts always been there since I was little . My hubby and I are both born and raised in SoCal, but I can’t stand how expensive it is and how hot it’s gotten. Doesn’t look like it’s even in the cards however, as  the hubs and fam are alL planted here with no intention of leaving. I honestly don’t know how we’ll ever afford to retire here when the time comes.

Yes, the area around Cortez is lovely, as a desert SW landscape. I was a BLM ranger at Mesa Verde and lived in Durango. The problem is water, or the lack of it. You must be sure you have an adequate supply for whatever dwelling, as many communities are now restricting water hauling and new wells are expensive as well as possibly not allowed. There has been a severe drought in the area for several years. Weather can be either too hot or too cold. The people are not quite as friendly as in Durango area. Cost of living is fairly low, but so is the income. The Ute Mtn Ute reservation is just south, with a casino, and there are lots of tourists, year around. Very small airport, and limited health care. Durango, again, is closest for real amenities. If you really want the experience, then several CO towns would be great, including Pueblo and Trinidad. Farmington, NM is also a choice.
