“Romantic” is how the Huffington Post ultimately describes the city of Puerto Vallarta, which lies on Mexico’s Pacific coast along the scenic Bay of Banderas; a location that has given this former small fishing village everything it needs to become one of the world’s top choices among retirees.
“In Puerto Vallarta, you have the opportunity to buy a world-class lifestyle in a region with world-class beaches and ocean views that is supported, right now, by world-class golf courses, marinas, restaurants and shopping,” writes the Huffington Post.
The cost of living in Puerto Vallarta is not only budget-friendly compared to what you could find in, say, southern California, but investing in real estate here can also provide a quality of life that is enviable in every way imaginable and available on an increasingly limited basis worldwide. Just 15 years ago, establishing this region was still a dream of many developers and speculators, but today the reality is undeniable: Puerto Vallarta is one of the world’s top destinations for retirees and travelers of all ages.
“The Pacific coast in and around Puerto Vallarta has been invested in, over decades, not only by developers and speculators, but also, importantly, by the Mexican government,” writes the Huffington Post. “This is one of the best places to embrace a fully appointed Pacific beach retirement lifestyle right now.”
The government has supported a variety of private investment throughout the region over the years, making Puerto Vallarta one of the most longstanding regions in Mexico to attract retirees who are looking for a safe, affordable alternative to retiring in their home country – right along with the Riviera Maya on the nation’s Caribbean coast. Specifically, the international airport is only a few miles from the city center, while the city’s historic Los Muertos pier has recently received a more than $2.4 million makeover, and the roads, power plants, cable television, high speed Internet and water treatment and distribution facilities are equal to what can be found in any U.S. city. In short, the reality is that, in Mexico, retirees can quickly and affordably gain access to a luxurious lifestyle that is typically only available for the rich and famous.
“Puerto Vallarta could be called glamorous, but the cost of living and of buying real estate here aren’t jet-set,” writes the Huffington Post. “This is one of Mexico’s most sophisticated resort spots.”
