So, what location, what city, do you think is the most healthy considering high altitude, lots of sun, and fruit available? What else would you want to add to the list for a healthy location?

Some I am thinking of include San Miguel de Allende, Panama, Perth, Uruguay, and Buenos Aires.

Another qualification, for me, would be level walking areas. Language could be a consideration too.

Is there any year-round healthy place that you'd like to live in?

That sounds good, Franz. I'll google that one. Thanks.

I used to speak Spanish (limited). My husband speaks only English. A lot of good places with only or mainly Spanish spoken.

Colorado!
Altitude almost entirely higher than 5000ft. It does get cold, but you'll have sunny days even in the winter.

Altitude and light great but what about fruit? And, this is just personal to me, I'm looking for warm.

San Miguel de Allende looks very good but it is carved out of a mountain. That means hilly. I can't do hilly. This isn't easy!!

I see that Uruguay's altitude is 144 ft. Kinda rules it out.

Another factor in all this is a country's attitude toward foreigners. You can be in a high altitude, coolish place with lots of fruit, but if the people there resent immigrants, it won't work.

Panama welcomes immigrants, but sea level....

Ecuador! Right on the equator, but also much of the country is at 10,000 feet, so not too hot. I'm heading there next week!

Vilcabamba seems to have it all. Good altitude, spring like weather year round, clean air and water, tons of organic produce. High life expectancy.

Birdie,
. About Buenos Aires. Though I love my city, I wouldn't recommend it from a Peat point of view. It's at sea level, and there's not much fruit variety, especially in winter. Summer is too hot and humid for my taste, though winter is quite nice.

Thanks, Gabriel. Yes, the sea level is a problem. And, now that you tell me about the fruit. Ah, too bad.

France could be good.... raw dairy, grassfed meat.
If I could live wherever I wanted, I've always thought of France. The food that works, the walking with pretty things to see...

What does it take legally to move to a place like Ecuador? Have to pay some big fees or something like that?

La Rinconada, Peru. Probably freezing but the town is at 16 700 feet.
Wow. San Miguel de Allende is only 2000 feet. Better than sea level. But..

Also, as Peat says, being at a high altitude for periods of time can be beneficial. So, maybe if one lived near a high altitude spot, then... Still, that entails travel and leaving home.

I wonder if there are places that are pretty good altitude, sun and fruit wise. A compromise. I'm really wondering about sea level. I've always wanted to be near the sea... ?

Here is the link to the postcard from International Living on Costa Rica:

It gives some background. Costa Rica does have some places with higher altitudes.
