Hi Marco. I am really enjoying your site and appreciate all the research, insights, and personal touches you’ve put into the details. I am at 61 year old female on Guam, considering retiring in the Philippines… Preferably in a smaller place with a view of the water. I would consider paying up to $1500 a month for rent/purchase of a property. I need good access to healthcare… The folks at St. Luke’s have helped me quite a lot in the past. I don’t have to be right next door, but access within a few hours would be helpful. any special thoughts? Again, thank you so much for your site… I found it very intriguing.

Hi Leilani, unsurprisingly, the best healthcare in the Philippines is in Manila or Cebu. You can find many places near Cebu city near the water, or if you don't mind a 1.5-hour flight, Dumaguete has pretty good healthcare facilities, beachfront access, and is still a short flight from Manila if you need more serious hospitalization.
