Today more and more Americans are deciding to retire in Mexico,where money goes farther and the cost of living and healthcare is more affordable. This week,the Huffington Post named Puerto Vallarta,Mexico,as one of the top three places for living out the American retirement dream in a foreign country,thanks to the enhanced quality of life this city provides.
“Mexico is home to the biggest established populations of American retirees in the world,making it a great choice if you seek adventure with the comforts of home,” writes the Huffington Post. “In Puerto Vallarta,you can buy a world-class lifestyle in a region with world-class beaches and ocean views that is supported by world-class golf courses,marinas,restaurants and shopping.”
In addition,Mexico is very accessible to the United States,which makes it easier to visit friends and family. In Puerto Vallarta,retirees will find affordable luxury coastal living that is unparalleled anywhere in the U.S.,with all of the modern amenities you are used to and then some. In fact,this part of Mexico’s Pacific coastline is very developed and has all of the comforts of home at a fraction of the price.

“This is a lifestyle that is available only on a limited basis worldwide,a lifestyle that is truly (not metaphorically) comparable to the best you could enjoy in Southern California,” writes the Huffington Post. “In Puerto Vallarta,you can afford it even on an average retirement budget.”
In addition,buying property in a popular vacation destination such as Puerto Vallarta ensures rental income if you decide to split your time between the U.S. and Mexico. And the emerging areas around the Riviera Nayarit,which runs north from Puerto Vallarta along the coast,also offer a wide variety of opportunities for ex-pats who are looking to invest in real estate somewhere in the region. Finally,speaking Spanish is not a requirement for ex-pats,since so many of the locals are able to speak English.
“It’s possible to enjoy many of the advantages of being retired overseas without having to cross over to what could be called a ‘local’ lifestyle,” writes the Huffington Post. “The American lifestyle has been exported and the day-to-day living probably resembles in many ways what you left behind back home.”
