Mexico Ranks #4

Among the top retirement spots in the world this year, you’ll find great variety in the cultural offerings, climates and lifestyles. Each destination is desirable in its own way, but they all offer something increasingly hard to come by at home: A good quality of life for a reasonable price.  This year, International Living.com ranks Mexico as #4.

4. Mexico: Culture and Convenience

By Glynna Prentice

“You don’t have to look far to find fascinating cultural traditions here,” says expat Deborah Mackay about Mexico, her new home. “Music, dancing, all kinds of colorful exhibitions are a regular part of life. And the cherry on the cake is that they’re usually free!”

Mexico’s colorful, vibrant culture does rank high with expats who live here…but it is just the cherry—and the icing—on a very rich cake. For expats, Mexico is an easy, convenient choice…a largely First-World country, at bargain prices, right on their doorstep. No wonder a million or more expats make Mexico their home.

Today’s Mexico offers modern highways and airports, cable and satellite TV, Internet, and other goodies expats enjoy at home. Want a big U.S.-style washer and dryer or a monster refrigerator?

No problem in Mexico —you’ll even find familiar brands. Yet the overall cost of living can be as little as half what you’d pay in the U.S. or Canada.

Health care, too, is good to excellent. (So good, in fact, that many Mexican hospitals do a thriving business in medical tourism.) Across the board, health care—including doctor’s visits, hospital stays, lab tests, and devices—costs a quarter to a half of what you’d pay in the U.S. That’s assuming, of course, that you even pay out of pocket. If you hold a valid residence visa, you can sign up for Mexico’s national health-care system—which has a top cost of about $300 a year. As far as housing goes, Mexico, much like the U.S. has a variety of price ranges. One of the prime spots to retire due to weather and proximity to the U.S. is Los Cabos.  While Los Cabos is noted for its rich and famous reputation.....and indeed, you might rub shoulders with celebrities any day of the week......Los Cabos has real estate opetionf for most anyone.  Los cabos Agent, in particular, has many listings under 500K.  In fact one of our recent newsletters featured eight properties under 200K.
