Live Better in Mexico: Retire Here

All the good things about living here, speaking from experience

As you prepare for retirement, you may be looking for a place to call home that won’t break the bank. And if that’s the case, Mexico is definitely worth considering. Not only is it a popular tourist destination, but it’s also a great place to retire. As a seasoned realtor with over 17 years of experience, I’ve seen countless retirees fall in love with Mexico and make it their permanent residence.

First and foremost, the cost of housing in Mexico is significantly less than in the US or Canada. For example, you can buy a spacious and modern home in the desirable Riviera Maya region for as little as $289,000, compared to $543,000 for a similar property in the US. That’s a saving of almost 50%!

But it’s not just the housing that’s affordable. The cost of living in Mexico is much lower than in North America, which means your retirement dollars will go much further. For less than $800 per month, you can live comfortably with a maid, pool attendant, gardener, and internet included. This also covers occasional repairs and the homeowners association fees. And for just $350 per month, you can fill your fridge with fresh groceries and delicious food.

Another benefit of retiring in Mexico is the quality of healthcare. The country’s healthcare system is top-notch, with no waiting times for appointments and visits to specialists costing as little as $50. While retirees must purchase health insurance either in Mexico or at home to cover emergencies, medical tests can often be booked within just a few days.

Retiring in Mexico it’s not all about these practicalities. The country is also known for its stunning beaches, warm weather, and vibrant culture. With its rich history, delicious food, and welcoming people, Mexico is a great place to call home.

Mexico offers a relaxed lifestyle surrounded by nature.

And as someone born in Canada, I can attest to the fact that Mexico truly is a hidden gem that many retirees overlook at first. By retiring in Mexico, you’ll not only be able to enjoy all that this beautiful country has to offer, but you’ll also be able to stretch your retirement dollars further and enjoy a comfortable and affordable lifestyle.
