9. Low Crime.
Crime is always an issue when it comes to finding where to retire. Some places are more dangerous than others and the impression is that Puerto Rico is unsafe. This is not quite the case when it comes to crime rates compared to the U.S. crime rates. Of all 52 jurisdictions of the U.S., which includes the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, Puerto Rico has the best crime rates. This is ideal for any retired person looking to be safe and enjoy life and if crime rates are important to you then consider Puerto Rico as your destination retirement place.
