Are you looking for year-round summer-like weather? Are you tired of traveling to warmer spots that inflate their prices during the season? The Snowbirds’ migration is in full swing. Semi and fully retired North Americans are heading to warmer climates for the next 5 to 6 months. There are several states such as California, Arizona, and of course, the Sunshine State of Florida who offers winter retreats. These popular destinations provide moderate temperatures, outdoor activities, and lots of entertainment for a premium price. There is, however, an alternative choice. Where, you ask? Just follow along!
Welcome to the Riviera Maya, Snowbirds!
Keeping in mind that most Americans and Canadians are escaping their frozen tundra, the Riviera Maya is less than a day’s plane trip away. Cancun International Airport is one of the easiest airports to travel in and out of. It is also very easy to find affordable transportation to one of many destinations such as Playa del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras, and Tulum. Having only a Tourist VISA is no problem. As long as you don’t stay for longer than six months, you will be fine. If you want to stay longer, it is advised to seek a legal consultation regarding your residential options.
Instead of considering yourselves Mexico Snowbirds, why not become six-month locals? It is very easy to establish friends – be it expats or local Mexicans, you will feel welcomed everywhere you go. There are a variety of local bars and restaurants that will remember your name, favorite dishes, and cocktails. The Riviera Maya hosts several world-organization branches like the Rotary and Elks Clubs. They too will make you feel right at home. If you want to stay close to your faith, get connected with an English-speaking church or house of worship.
Here are some benefits of living in Mexico:
We are sure some people are hesitant to travel south of the border. Let’s point out some of the obvious benefits and specific positives that could sway your mindset.
