Property in countries like Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica and Honduras offer a lot of opportunities, amenities and financial benefits to Expats that would like to retire to their country. When you go to these countries you can choose to live in areas that are populated by other Americans or you can go native and really immerse yourself in their culture.

My husband and I recently visited Honduras, specifically the small island of Guanaja, in the Bay Island chain. Guanaja is located next to Roatan, which is "big" on the cruise line circuit and has recently been featured on the HGTV series House Hunters International.
