Buenos Aires, Argentina

Both scenic and sophisticated, Buenos Aires is often referred to as the “Paris of South America.”

“This falls into one of those fantasy places for people,” said Ken Budd, the executive editor of AARP magazine.

It’s got a lot of museums and restaurants, with beautiful cathedrals and opera houses. And since the country’s economic crisis in 2002, it’s been a very affordable option. Rents start at $700 a month in some popular expat communities, and you can buy a nice condo for a couple hundred thousand dollars, AARP reports. Plus, it’s close the beautiful beaches of Uruguay.

And let’s not forget, Buenos Aires is home of the tango. Ole!
