Have you been considering a Mexico retirement?Â If so, you’ll certainly have your own motivations.Â Consider the following list of the top 5 reasons we’ve put together from talking to those who have already made the move; some of the reasons will most certainly be similar to your own, but others may pleasantly surprise you!
1)Â Climate and Nature â€“ People first think about heading south when white winters have long lost their charm and we begin to feel the aches and pains that go with the cold; living in a place that has an average temperature around 70 degrees, and rarely if ever goes below 60 is very appealing!Â On top of this, the warm weather allows you to enjoy the ocean, beaches, biologically rich wildlife reserves and much more!
2)Â Prices & Quality of Life â€“ The next big motivation is price; even those who can put up with (or mostly avoid) the cold, the cost of retirement in the U.S. or Canada just eats away at savings too quickly.Â While other cheap locations can be found, Mexico offers the distinct advantage of being both affordable and conveniently modern. Fresh food, household items, dining, and especially healthcare can be found at much lower prices, but at the highest level of quality.
Perhaps most importantly, the price of Mexico condos for sale is the point where you will find savings first, and some of the largest savings.Â Real estate in Mexico ideal for retirement, or easily adapted for retirement, can be found for excellent prices matching just about any budget and lifestyle.
3)Â People and Culture â€“ For those who aren’t familiar with Mexican culture, you will fall in love with it quickly.Â The people are warm, friendly, welcoming, and respectful of their elders.Â The food is also wonderful; in addition, Mexico’s rich traditions are defined by music, dance, art, museums, historic cities, and ancient pyramid sites from the civilizations of their ancestors.
4)Â Easy Travel to the U.S. – Mexico’s combination of culture, quality of life and warm weather is unique (despite common misconceptions, Mexico’s traditions and culture are not universal throughout Latin America.)Â What’s more, it’s the closest country to the U.S. and Canada.Â Modernization of infrastructure and economy has made more international airports available with frequent direct flights to anywhere in North America, and even beyond.Â The flights are very affordable, making visits back home easy, as well as visits from family and friends.Â Many retirees enjoy travelling by road as well.
5)Â Safety â€“ This is perhaps the most surprising to those who have never visited Mexico, due to the out-of-context news on violence we keep seeing, but those who visit and live here will confirm that for the most part they often feel even safer than in their home cities.Â Drug violence is isolated to specific pockets of the country â€“ mostly along the U.S. border â€“ and even most Mexican nationals live quite apart from these problems.Â Mexico homes for sale can be found for very accessible prices in gated communities, which offer added security and less traffic, but for the reasons just mentioned, many retirees feel very comfortable buying a home or condo in the downtown or village center areas.
Do you have reasons not on this list?Â It’s not surprising if you do â€“ the list could go on much, much longer!Â Come and experience retirement in Mexico, and you’ll begin to discover even more reasons!
