    Cozumel...but I'd love to go to Palau before I gave my final answer.

    I surely would not pick Cozumel because you would be stuck on Cozumel Island.

    Better would be Key Largo. Also quite affordable there, to retire.

    Too cold and too expensive to live there ($1 million for a rickety shack). If you like cold then PNW would make more sense in the longer term.

    Of all the cold water diving this is probably the warmest. But living nearby cannot be cheap either, though.

    That's funny, because except for island fever, I would think the big island of Hawai'i rates way up on the list close to #1. Because not only do you have world class scuba on the big island, but also snorkeling with dolphins, beaches with black with green sand, volcanoes (not one but 2 of them), skiing, caves on the surface too, horseback riding, hiking, etc.

    How does this compare with the other side? The Great Barrier Reef?

    I have heard many people rate Palau as the #1 dive site in the world.

    However I would not want to be stuck there every day.:no:
