Barcelona, Spain, came in at number six on the Forbes ranking
WASHINGTON (TVR) – Say you won the Powerball jackpot, a windfall inheritance, or pulled off a massive stock trade.
Where would you travel to the day after you quit your job?
That’s the question Forbes tries to answer with a column titled “Quit Your Job and Live Abroad: 8 Places So Cheap You Might Not Need to Work.”
The top place for cheap living: Carvoeiro, Portugal.
“The take-your-breath-away views from the rocky coast, the constant sunshine, the near-perfect weather year-round, the food, the wine, the history — it all adds up to top-shelf living for a very bargain price,” Forbes and expert Peddicord write.
“I think Carvoeiro is the best place to live abroad, unless you hate Europe and hate the beach.”
The cost is about $1,150 a month, according to the magazine.

In South America, the top destination was El Poblado, Medellín, Colombia, which ranked number two overall.
Forbes said that El Poblado and the surrounding region “is culture rich and Euro chic; its people are well dressed, well mannered and welcoming. The city offers a comfortable, tranquil and idyllic way of life for a super affordable cost.”
