Find the Best Place to Retire in the World


Visitors: 279

The word “retirement" isn't just for those over 55 anymore.   With many people having the option of working from home on the internet, taking a mini-retirement to a simpler, more relaxed place like Mexico is becoming an option many can enjoy.

As top retirement spots like Arizona, California and Florida become less affordable and more crowded, you may consider relocating overseas to spend your leisure years.

Mexico, with affordable living, interesting culture, and beautiful locales, should be at the top of your list.   Though you may be reluctant to make a move to a foreign country, in truth, the Mexican government is very welcoming to expatriates from all over the world and have made  residency requirements as simple as possible.

If you're an older retiree, you may also be concerned about the quality of Mexico's health care system.   Because many doctors have been educated and trained in the United States and abroad, you will find good medical care available.   Though Medicaid and Medicare are not accepted in Mexico, the cost of care is significantly cheaper.   Also, foreigners living legally in Mexico are eligible to purchase medical coverage known as IMSS, or Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social.   This coverage costs just hundreds of dollars per year.

Though most expatriates make their home in Baja California, there are many other excellent cities with friendly locals and active, vibrant communities.   You will discover large groups of foreigners from all over the world living near Guadalajara, San Miguel de Allende, and Puerto Vallarta, for example.    You may even have always dreamed of living near the beach and in Mexico, your dream can become a reality.   If that's the case, check out the Riviera Nayarit, a stream of towns bordering the Pacific north of Puerto Vallarta.

Making a move to a new place is always scary and though there will be obstacles to making an overseas move, Mexico is a wonderful country to retire.  

I'm ready to retire; are you? You don't have to wait until your golden years to live a slower, simpler life. Find out how you can retire in Mexico and find homes for sale at
