    Last week we reviewed Port Charlotte; here is our take on its next door neighbor to the west. Cape Coral has more miles of canals than any place on earth - over 400!  It also has Pine Island, the Caloosahatchee River, and the Gulf of Mexico. Prices are cheap right now - average in the low $100's.
     
     
    If you are looking for offbeat potential, Bisbee is your retirement place. It's near the Mexican border in an old mining town in the mountains. It's cool (attitude and altitude), sometimes scruffy, and way different than about anywhere else in Arizona. Thanks to Michael Pollick for the tip.
     

    Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
    For the adventurous retiree on a budget, check out Lake Atitlan. The setting itself is jaw dropping. Three jungle-covered volcanoes jut into the sky, barricading a startlingly blue lake. It's the most popular tourist area in Guatemala; many Americans come here to retire.
