Snow is beautiful, fun, and even romantic. It is also a massive pain in the butt. The shoveling, the ice melt, the driving around people who have no idea how to drive in snow—it is all stuff you’d rather leave behind.
It really makes you want to be a snowbird and fly south for the winter.
Oh, but who are you kidding? You could never afford to live somewhere warm and tropical every winter. Right?
There are warm, tropical locations all over the world that are not only absolute paradise, but also absolutely affordable. Below are just a few locations where you can be a snowbird without breaking your budget.
This beautiful province is one of the most developed in the country, and it also offers some of the most stunning landscapes in the entire world. One look at the bright-blue waters and you will be hooked.

Admittedly, Nicaragua went through some very rough years not that long ago. But now, it has been transformed into a major tourist hub and no city has been given more attention than Granada. It offers a lakeside location with colonial-era architecture and a slow-paced lifestyle that is perfect for relaxation. And when it comes to cost of living, this might be the cheapest option on the list; all you need is $800 USD a month to live a very comfortable lifestyle.
Ambergris Caye, Belize
While living in paradise may be awesome, not everyone wants to learn a new language to enjoy it. Lucky for you, there is Belize, an English-speaking country right in the middle of Latin America. The location gives you access to the stunning Caribbean sea while also making it easy to travel to other Latin American countries when you feel the desire to wander a bit. And, you are still close to home.
