It really depends on how open minded you are but I'd look for two things.
A poor country in which your Dollar will still have some value and also one that is also relatively stable/safe.
Unfortunately that eliminates much of south america which fits the first criteria...but categorically doesn't meet the second as far as safety is
I'd consider a place like Greece or Portugal which have a nice warm climate and where with the current economic downturn you can still get alot for
your Dollar still. And in being on the continent of Europe you would still be able to pick up and go elsewhere if needbe.
Which you cannot do if you are on an Island.in the Pacific..and or in Asia ...
Greece and Portugal have great weather and beaches , great food & culture....inexpensive and are safe.
And I see that you most likely speak/comprehend Spanish so Portuguese wouldn't be too difficult to pick up.
Greece might be more a bargain though....
Unfortunately Gold and or Silver will be your most stable and liquid investment against inflation.
Especially with what is going on with the currencies such as the Euro.
The saber rattling against Iran will likely spell well for the US Dollar though.....
Liquidity is a major consideration and once purchased there are no blood sucking fees and penalties as you will likely incur if your money was in a
bank CD or a brokerage house.
In fact $100K , with gold being at $1600. per ounce you could pack up and carry your entire wad in the form of once ounce coins 10 per tube on your
person if need be. Keeping most of it in a safe....
Also Europe is considerably more receptive to Gold...which can be exchanged at any bank.
