The neighboring countries of the U.S. top the list of favorite destinations for American expatriates. Over one million American citizens live in Mexico, and nearly 700,000 live in Canada. Central American countries such as Costa Rica and Panama are also popular. These countries are politically, economically, and socially fairly stable, and have a sizeable expat community. They are also fairly affordable destinations for expats from North America, and are only a few hours of air travel away from the U.S.
Transitions Abroad has compiled the best resources for the most popular countries in North and Central America, for current expatriates and those who dream of moving and living abroad.
