I'm not doing it but I would like to.
You can live well in Costa Rica or Panama for about $2000 per month. Less if you sit home but thats probably not what you want to do. Back to the US figure $3000 a month.
Assuming you are renting wherever you live and have a reasonable medical plan.
So if at 55 you can put together about 800K all total you will be able to do it.
