Anybody here been to Cyprus?

Looks interesting, especially around Paphos. Still thinking affordable non-US retirement locations.
If someone tells you "There's no such thing as a stupid question", have him list a watch for sale on WUS.

Consider Malta

Excellent English speaking population.
Weather and food are similar to Sicily ( = awesome), but because of the British influence things actually do work.
Nice diving, especially in Gozo, people are nice, 1hour from Rome which gives you access to all of Europe for travel.

Been to both, and would also recommend Malta.

I spent 8 months in Cyprus, and consider it a nice place to visit for a week. I had a friend from the Foreign Service who built a home there for retirement and gave up after a year; taxes, poor bureaucracy, difficulty of finding products, etc. pushed him out. If one is going there, the Turkish side is considerably nicer/prettier. The Paphos/Ayia Napa area is pretty, but gets overrun with budget vacation seekers for the summer.

I only spent a week in Malta, but loved it. Great food, beautiful country, and stable. The only downside is it's pretty small and I imagine easy to develop cabin fever. Diving is better off Malta then Cyprus--loved Gozo.

Enjoyed my week in Cyprus but only to vacation. It can be chaotic and contradictory.

Going to Malta within the next six months, as it is a bucket-list destination for me.

I've been to cyprus, briefly, a long time ago. It was lovely, but I'm not sure I'd want to live there permanently. Malta sounds like a better idea for residency.

Does going to the birthday bash for someone from Cyprus count?

Check out some of the expat forums. I have used them on my plans to move to Costa Rico one day.
