3.  Cayo, Belize

  • Your monthly budget: $1,225

Off the beaten path, this is a place for those looking for a little more privacy and solitude. There are just a handful of restaurants, but plenty to explore outdoors including Mayan ruins, rapids and caves.

The Cayo region is an affordable place to settle down. Rent of a mid-range, one-bedroom apartment is estimated at about $600 a month. There's a surprising number of expats and you'll be fine without learning another language. But if you're looking for high-speed Internet or nightlife, this isn't the place for you.
