Peru could work. I haven’t been there, but looks like they have some amazing spots.

Warm water is a must. It's freezing where I live, I'm over it!
I don't think you'd enjoy the water temps in Peru.

I am going to add a little nuance to the discussion. Being able to supplement my retirement savings with some form of remote part-time income would be helpful. Is there anyone out there who is in their late 50s and beyond finding ways to supplement their retirement kiting with part-time employment. As I'm considering the expat route I'm assuming this would need to be web based work. I'm not a tech guy so the classic digital nomad gigs such as coding are not in my wheelhouse.

Maybe teach kitesurfing, or English? You could start a cryptocurrency exchange…laugh!

Thailand wouldn't offer reliable wind over 12 months, if that's what you want.

If you have some Spanish, central or southern American countries might be worth more investigating.

The Canaries in Europe are warm all year and Spanish speaking, but more expensive than Philippines/Asia.

In an ideal world, splitting your year up by wind forecast would be perfect
6 months in Greece/Turkey
6 months in Brazil

I have been to Taiwan. Stunning location and beaches, but by no means cheap.

If affordability is key, along with
consistent wind and warm weather, Brazil, Philippines or Vietnam might be leading options. Spend a month in each and get a feel for the place.
