Why Spain?

Spain is incredibly popular with expats of all stripes, whether they’re studying abroad, retiring, or any of the life stages in between. They’re drawn to the cities, the beaches, the weather, the art and architecture, and the food — all at a decent cost of living — along with highly ranked safety, infrastructure, and healthcare. Spain welcomes retired Americans, and it’s easy to get around Europe once you’re there. Spanish people may speak Spanish, Catalan, or a number of other regional Romance languages or Spanish dialects, but more than a quarter speak English. Each region of the country has its own distinct personality, so enjoy exploring and discovering your favorites!
