Green Valley, Arizona.  The weather is perfect.  The real estate taxes are minimal.  Retirement community.  Just voted the 4th best place to retire.

How long to you plan to live there?  Will this location be suitable when you are old and frail?  How accessible is it for your friends and for emergency services if and when you need them?

I purchased land in the Olympic Peninsula along the Coast.  It's in a temperate rainforest,and is gorgeous, but haven't built yet.  Still trying to decide if rain is in my longterm forecast.  Sequim is in a dry and beautiful area. It may be a good choice.

You should ask what type of farmland? Do you want rolling hills pine land with hunting, grains, or cotton land? How much land do you want to own, because that definitely makes a difference. What climate do you prefer? For example, what gardening zone do you prefer. Best of luck to you!

I know people who love Guadamala. Of course, Spanish is a second language of theirs, it’s a great stretch to their retirement dollars to live there. They have dual citizenship.
