We are thinking about checking out EU countries in the Caribbean with maybe eventual citizenship for me. I am the only one in the family not a dual citizen currently. I think even our dog can get an EU pet passport.

I'd like to at least be on par with the dog in terms of future residency options.

Most people learn spanish pretty quickly, at least enough to get by with people who speak no english. Online courses or classes to learn basics get you started. The more you interact with locals in Spanish or whatever new language the faster you learn. Expats who move to gated communities with mostly english speaking residents have the hardest time learning the new language. We see that here in the US too where entire neighborhoods have elders that never have learned english.

Spanish should not be a problem but weather would be in the summer in Panama. Too hot. Need a cooler place up north. Maybe Colorado?

For the fun of it...Keith
