Somalia, great career opportunities to be a Pirate. They're currently seeking people who speak Spanish fluently.

You might consider Vietnam - it's a very happy society and they treat expats rather well. I personally like Hanoi. Look at the Hanoi Expat site here.

Considering you both speak Spanish perfectly, I'd be going for either Spain, or maybe somewhere in South America (your money will stretch a lot further there). And as daawgon indicated, South East Asia has lots of good (and cheap) options for expats as well.

Any idea on what you want to do for a living in this different country? That usually plays an important part in choosing. :)

Like Peter asked, what kind of jobs do you need to find? Some countries have very strict requirements for whether you ("foreigners") can work there or not....
If you dont HAVE to work, then (lucky you) i would get a Round The World ticket, travel everywhere you've ever been curious about & decide where YOU liked best & then settle there!
Also, consider moving somewhere where you dont speak the language 'perfectly' at first----after total immersion like that, you'd soon become fluent in your THIRD language! :)

As somebody already wrote before, you cannot just move to another country on a whim. You need a residency permit to live in almost all countries and to work there you need a work permit.

Europe is tough for moving to, if you need to work for a living there is no easy way in. For getting a job and a work permit in Europe you both need to be highly qualified and highly skilled migrants. Bachelor/Masters degree is minimum. And even then some people have to attend a European university and graduate with a Ph.D. to get their ticket into the system.

Your best chance is to look at your family tree and see whether you might have inherited EU citizenship somehow or whether you qualify for a visa like the UK ancestry visa.

Interested in 'Eastern' Europe at all?
Europe is a big place - larger than The USA in fact. Lots of culture, languages and different ideas.
In London, a top hotel room will cost you around £3,000-£4,000 a night. Over to the other side of the continent - and you can buy a house for the same price in Bulgaria.
