This book is a must-read for anyone who dreams of retirement but worries that their plan has been derailed by a weak economy. "The dream is still possible," say Billy and Akaisha Kaderli, and they should know. Retired in 1991 at the age of 38, the Kaderlis have been living an adventurous, global life and have taught us that enrichment doesn't have to cost a fortune. Using their own inspirational retirement as an example, they step readers through practical advice about building and managing a financial portfolio, health care concerns, housing, traveling and lifestyle choices. After reading this book, you'll come away not only with a solid financial plan, but the courage and know-how to take the leap into the life you want.

Just got back from my first visit to Lake Chapala. Definitely won't be the last. You guys are right on the mark - it's a beautiful place. Thanks for your advice and for steering me there. Hope next time we get a chance to meet.
George Sweet

I stay in the Chapala area the months of January and February - then July and August every year. I went there originally because of your book The Chapala Guide. I am unable to retire because of family reasons, however, my life is great - 8 months here and 4 months there works out great. I do not take a car to Lakeside - buses are easy and walking is great. Thank you for everything including saving my life. The need to get away is big sometimes, and the Chapala area is perfect for my budget. Will appreciate you forever.

I have been to Pana before and this guide is spot on regarding the ins and outs of Living in Pana. A must-read for first timers. - Chris

The Adventurer's Guide to Pana Living

$14.95 USD

The most comprehensive Guide to Panajachel ever! We have six years of experience living in Pana and decades of retirement adventures. Use this guide to launch your own Guatemalan Adventure. Unique, Unusual, Unmatched Beauty, Panajachel is a Retirement Gem in the Rough. Some people would like an exotic style of retirement, a little different than suburban living in the United States or Canada. Others might be looking for more temperate weather, a place where one doesn’t roast in the summer or freeze in the winter. There are would-be retirees who realize that their savings and retirement income won’t cover the price of the lifestyle they dreamed of in their older years, because costs have gotten too high for daily living. Enter Guatemala as a retirement destination choice. More specifically, Panajachel, Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. More info here.

Kudos for writing another descriptive, informative and useful guide, this time for Guatemala! I used The Adventurer's Guide to Guatemala as my primary resource, in addition to Lonely Planet and online research. I followed your recommendations on day trips in Antigua and was not disappointed. The cultural museum and the macadamia nut farm were especially interesting! The information you provided on lake Atitlan was also helpful. What a beautiful place!

One attraction I would like to recommend to fellow adventurers: the alluring natural turquoise colored pools of Semuc Champey. Tropical, mountainous Semuc Champey makes a wonderful 1-2 day stopover for those enroute to Tikal or Rio Dulce/Livingston, and there are convenient shuttles and chicken buses to Flores and Rio Dulce.

I heartily recommend your guide to anyone traveling to Guatemala. Your stories and thoughtful photos really inspire one to get out an explore. Keep up the great work!

The Adventurer's Guide to Guatemala

$14.95 USD

The Adventurer's Guide to Guatemala we take you from the ancient Maya strongholds of Huehuetenango and Xela to one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in the world, Panajachel on the ancient volcanic Lake Atitlan. We show you colorful native markets, the old Colonial capital city of Antigua and give you a sneak peek into the Caribbean side of Guatemala like you have never seen before.

Maya ruins, island cities, exploding volcanoes and the famous brilliantly unique Chicken Buses – it’s all here in this Guide to Guatemala.

Hundreds of photos are included so you can have a personal glimpse into this amazing country! More info here.

I just finished reading the Destination Guide.  It was a quick read, and as in your “main” book that I bought previously, nicely spiced by all the photos, including those of my favorite topic (no, not you guys, sorry!)—food! I am at a decision point where I can take an early retirement/severance package or continue for another few years of stress but good $$.  Trying to sort it out.  Your book was a welcome diversion and perspective.
Very tempting.

Thank You Both!  You are great writers and really turn a fine eBook, my favorite literary media.  After all, as another travel wonk I know the value of being able to read 8 titles at once and have them at my fingertips immediately. This book is just even juicier than even the related webpage’s and was totally worth teasing these electrons from this dodgy Guatemalan connection.  I knew I'd need this very readable "weightless" Travel guide to "carry along" as I left behind spectacular Central America's impending rainy season for the Sunny climate of Mexico's beautiful South Pacific beaches.
