Why So Many Expats Choose to Live or Retire in Mexico

August 9, 2016

Why Mexico? A great climate, friendly locals, incredible food and a very social and engaged expat community make living in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico not only a smart choice economically, but socially as well.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - A common question for anyone who has left the USA or Canada for Mexico to hear is, "Why Mexico?" Friends, family and even strangers who have been exposed to sensational media accounts detailing the 'dangers' of Mexico often find the choice perplexing.

But here are a few reasons why so many of us find life 'South of the Border' so appealing:

Safety - Surprise! Did you know that a foreigner living in a tourist area of Mexico like Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos, Playa del Carmen or San Miguel de Allende are statistically less likely to be a victim of violet or property crime than those living in most major cities in the United States?

Medical Care - In the USA, many struggle with HMOs that don't fully cover their medical needs. Canadians face long wait times to see specialists or book surgeries. In Mexico, health care is inexpensive, incredibly convenient and of the same caliber as in the rest of North America. For example, you can generally schedule a same-day appointment with a cardiologist, neurologist or oncologist with the same level and quality of training and equipment as in Canada or the USA and expect to pay about $28 USD for your visit.

Cost of Living - Mexico is a sunny place where the living is easy. Foreigners can expect to decrease their cost of living by 30 to 60 percent while enjoying a similar lifestyle and housing. In fact, the lifestyle is often much better, with employing housekeepers or gardeners within easy reach for most every budget.

Great Education - For families living in Mexico, there is a wide variety of private schools which provide an excellent level of education for a fraction of the cost of private schools in the rest of North America. Small class sizes, a fully bilingual education and an array of extracurricular activities are the norm at most Mexican private schools.

Lifestyle - A great climate, friendly locals, incredible food and a very social and engaged expat community make living in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico not only a smart choice economically, but socially as well.

Mexico really does have it all, and with the Mexican pesos at record lows against the US and Canadian dollars, there has never been a better time to buy the home of your dreams in Puerto Vallarta.
