American Retirement in the Philippines


*AUTHOR’S NOTE – Many of us Americans did not save enough for retirement. It’s time for a reality check. If we did not save for retirement, it’s time to make a plan. It’s better to start looking for a retirement place that we can afford AND enjoy. The longer we put off finding the right retirement place for us, the more difficult it will be to retire comfortably…soon.

My husband and I will be retiring in a couple of years. We are doing this research in advance for our own benefit. We are unsure if we will be able to afford a quality retirement life here in the U.S. when the right time comes, so we searched overseas.

We were looking for a country where the cost of living is affordable, where the climate is mild (not too hot/not too cold), where living is safe and secure, where people will welcome us, and where there is no language barrier. Many of the best options for enjoying an enormously enriched retirement lifestyle on even a very modest budget can be found overseas, especially in Asia.

Well, what do you know? We’ve found the country that’s exactly just that – with affordable cost of living, a tropical climate, relatively peaceful, American-friendly, and English-speaking people! We have agreed – our choice for our retirement is the Philippines! This little country seemed to be the best place for American retirement!

Knowing that there are other retirees on the same boat as we are, I am sharing this research with you. With the help of a native, I am presenting the Philippines to you, so you can pick your own location. I am sure anywhere we choose, we will enjoy a quality retirement life that we so deserve!

My posts will help you decide exactly where in the Philippines you would like to retire. We have different outlooks in life – some prefer to retire near the beach, some in the farm, some in the city, some couldn’t care less! You can view my posts about the different places in the Philippines, and find an area that you feel has a certain connection to you. Have a tour of the Philippines and visit that place, and find the connection, before you retire there permanently. I hope I can be of help.

Thank God Simon and I are both healthy, and so far, we have not required any major medical care in life.  But we know that retiring age starts at about 62, when people will start getting all the ailments brought about by age.


Naturally, when we start looking for a retirement place in the Philippines, we would like to find a place where there are ample medical care facilities nearby.  We would like to make sure that there will be a hospital we can come to, in case a problem arises.


So once again, I did my research in this area, which will quell our fear of not having any medical facilities to run to.  When we retire in the Philippines, we would like to be peaceful and calm, relaxed and confident that our health is in good hands.  And here are my findings.

This list is NOT for the whole Philippines, this is ONLY for Metro Manila!  That means there are more hospitals scattered around the Philippines!  These people are concerned with their health and safety as much as we are.


And this list does not include the private clinics owned by the doctors themselves.


This only shows that when we retire in Metro Manila, in any of the cities within it, modern medical facilities are easily within reach, should we ever need one.




Doesn’t it feel good that we have choices?  Now we know that we will be okay when we are there!

  • It is indeed very nice to know that there are lots of medical facilities in the Philippines. It’s hard to retire in a place that’s very far away, if they did not have these. Knowing that it’s there makes me feel more assured that me and my husband will be in a safe place when we retire. This post is very important to us! Thanks, and please keep on posting stuff like these! Have a cup of coffee!

  • I went to see my friend’s grandma in St. Luke’s and it was like a good hospital in LA – crisp, clean, modern, efficient. You won’t think there’s something like this in a third-world country.

  • We plan to retire in Manila in the next couple of years. It’s nice to know that there are so many medical facilities that are available. It makes me feel safer. Thanks for the post!
