Cali, Colombia | Overseas Haven Report
Known as the Salsa Capital of the World, Cali, Colombia, is not a typical tourist destination—but not for long! It’s a ways off the typical gringo trail, yet a well-organized real estate industry can be found here with a generous inventory of quality properties. Construction standards are high—even in older buildings—yet prices are much lower than you’ll find in most markets in South America… an amazing value when compared to Cali’s quality of life.
As Colombia’s third largest city, Cali offers a slice of authentic culture along with clear skies, nice weather (average temperature is 75°F year-round), relatively easy traffic to navigate, top-notch health care (with the highest rated hospital in Colombia), upscale food, and increasingly sophisticated nightlife. In addition, Cali is only about a 90-minute drive to the Pacific Ocean.
But where Cali really shines is in comparison to other, higher cost cities in Colombia like Bogotá, Medellín, and Cartagena. The low real estate prices caused by today’s exchange rates make it an attractive, viable location for expat retirees, snow birds, investors, and workers with portable careers. In this Overseas Haven Report, we take an in-depth look at Cali, Colombia… its lifestyle, cost of living, property market, and investment potential.SKU: OHR-CALI-COLOMBIA

Cuenca, Ecuador | Overseas Haven Report
As a favored destination for English-speaking expatriates, Cuenca is strictly a 21st-century phenomenon.
The infrastructure is good and getting better, the weather and colonial culture are excellent and it is relatively easy to get to, especially from the United States.
The city is the perfect size for a lot of people—large enough to have big city amenities and cultural activities but small enough to have a comfortable, homey feel.
The cultural attractions includes Cuenca’s Cañari and Inca heritage, its well-preserved Spanish historic district (second only in South America to nearby Quito’s size), and its reputation as a center for the arts.
It features dozens of museums and art galleries and hosts an international film festival and an art bienal.
Another major draw for expats is Cuenca’s low cost of living, allowing North Americans to live comfortably on Social Security and pension checks.
Other incentives include: an efficient public transportation system, the best drinking water in Latin America, and good health and dental care.
Ample opportunities for outdoor activities abound, including biking, fishing and hiking.
And Cuenca is a great place to get around on foot.SKU: OHR-CUENCA-ECUADOR

Da Lat, Vietnam | Overseas Haven Report
Best known as “Little Paris,” Da Lat is a resort town in Vietnam’s Central Highlands. Often shrouded in mist thanks to its altitude, its elevation also means year-round mild weather and pine forests, attracting plenty of expats and tourists seeking cooler climes. The climate also means an abundance of local produce available no matter the month.
Da Lat is Vietnam’s honeymoon capital, often called the Valley of Love, offering flower gardens, swan-shaped paddleboats, a miniature Eiffel Tower, and much more to the romantic at heart. Plus, golf courses for those who like to hit the links.
The city is relatively small (under 400 square kms), allowing you to get around on foot. It’s also considered a safe area, not subject to earthquakes or other natural disasters.
Perhaps the best thing about Da Lat, though, is that it can be enjoyed at an shockingly low cost. Everything from rent to health insurance to a cup of coffee is cheaper than it is back home, and you can live well here on nothing but your pension.
If you’re after peace and tranquility, rest, and relaxation, this might be the place for you.SKU: OHR-DA-LAT-VIETNAM

On top of this, it has clean, well-kept streets… amazing architecture more reminiscent of Europe than Spanish America… newly constructed pedestrian-only areas lined with cafés, shops, and clubs… and a property market that offers astounding value for its worth.
