Yucatan real estate offers one of the finest Mexican retirement communities, combining a historic colonial city, Merida, with a very nearby beachfront and a large selection of modern services. Yet, the government of Yucatan hasn’t just sat back and “let it happen;” the state and the city are continually investing and making efforts to make Merida and Yucatan more attractive and liveable for tourists and retirees.
One of the most recent efforts was announced with an upcoming investment of about $12 million dollars into the maintenance of Merida’s historic center, as well as the development of tourism infrastructure projects in Merida and nearby Yucatan communities such as Progreso and Valladolid.
The investment will include “romantic” touches like the illumination of colonial-aged churches built in Merida’s city center. It will also include programs to help build awareness of, and offer information about the buildings, museums and landmarks located throughout the city. In a city already known for romantic evening walks past picturesque old buildings, with the sound of street musicians, such improvements will continue to contribute to the unique atmosphere which this Mexican retirement community already provides for American and Canadian retirees.
Another recent investment focus, interesting on the practical side for retirees, is on attracting a larger number of retirement-specific medical services. Merida’s hospitals are already known for their high quality and accessible prices, drawing patients from all around the Yucatan Peninsula (even beyond Mexico’s borders.) This new effort is intended to bring specialized clinics that work specifically with the needs of retired expats living in the city – offering service in both Spanish and English.
These are only two examples of how Yucatan is working to make Merida and the surrounding communities one of the best options for U.S. retirees, combining a very relaxing lifestyle close to home, with culture, activities, and low prices.
