If you’ve been thinking about retiring in Mexico, but haven’t quite decided where you want to live, you’re in luck. It’s a big country and you have many wonderful options, from laidback beaches to pristine mountain environments and from bustling culture-rich cities to small, peaceful villages.
When choosing a location to retire in Mexico we suggest that you think about these five points:
- The Comfort: This includes climate, terrain and safety. For many of us this means, no snow, a flat walk able urban area, and of course, we want it to be safe. We’d never consider any location that we don’t feel is generally safe — although no society is completely crime-free. Just as at home, you’ll find rough neighborhoods in every big city.
- How convenient is the location: For many, this means being close to an international airport, a good hospital, shopping and the entertainment amenities important to us.
- Cost of living: We want the place we live to be affordable. Just makes sense.
- Local Culture: You’ll be moving to a foreign community so make sure you enjoy the local culture. And be sure that there are plenty of opportunities to keep yourself engaged… whether it’s water sports or outdoor activities or music and theater and so on. Be sure your interests will be satisfied.
- And the last one, think about where have you visited or heard about that sounds like a place that you would like to retire in Mexico.
