Retire In Mexico - Live
Better For Less Money
By Dru Pearson
|Have you ever thought
about retiring in Mexico? How about retiring in one of its many
lovely retirement havens? Dru Pearson, the author of this report,
tells us that there are five major areas where American and Canadian retirees
tend to congregate. While there may be a few expatriates scattered in a
dozen villages throughout Mexico, most Americans and Canadians settle in
one of five locations: San Miguel de Allende, Mazatlan, Oaxaca, Guadalajara,
or Lake Chapala. Dru Pearson visited all these areas before settling in
Lake Chapala. Dru gives sound and thoughtful advice on retirement in Mexico.
Everything from how to pick your location to Mexican paperwork is covered.

|Mexico has lovely architecture,
pristine beaches and much lower prices than the USA & Canada.
But why Mexico, you might ask?
The reason so many Americans and Canadians choose Mexico is because they
can drive to Mexico in a car. A bigger reason is that Mexico is a bargain
compared to the USA and Canada. But there are also a large number
of Europeans in Mexico. Mexico is rich with history, steeped in culture,
having perhaps a more pronounced culture than any other nation in latin
America with the exception of Brazil and Argentina. Mexico has great food,
great architecture and many areas with an excellent climate. Mexico
is also modern, with better highways than many parts of latin America and
an infrastructure that allows foreigners to connect via telephone and internet
to the rest of the world. This level of infrastructure isn't available
in Nicaragua, nor in Guatemala, and this is a very important determining
factor for the retiree who doesn't want to be inconvenienced by inconveniences.

||Mexico is also a healthier
place to live because of the food. Fresh fruit and vegetables are
always in season and taste so much better in Mexico that you eat more of
them. In fact, unlike North American produce that is picked green
and allowed to ripen in transit, Mexican produce is picked at its peak
and sold in the market the very next day. And little or no
preservatives are used in processed food which means you’re ingesting fewer
You will find that life is so much
more enjoyable because you finally have time to pursue your hobbies and
develop your talents. People who move to Mexico finally have
time to prepare the recipes they’ve been saving from gourmet magazines,
put the box of photographs into albums, or garden to their hearts’ content
in this land where flowers grow all year long. Others develop new
interests and discover latent talents when they take a ceramics or watercolor
class. There are also innumerable opportunities for volunteer work.
Where the author lives in Ajijic, the expatriates maintain a school teaching
English and computer skills, manage the only library in town for Mexicans,
run a housing facility for the elderly, and assist children who were born
For people who love to socialize, there’s
probably no better place in the world to make friends. People who
don’t work have more time to party! But, even more than that, expatriates,
because of their adventurous natures, seem more gregarious than their American/Canadian
counterparts. Then, too, expatriates find themselves thrown into
a world where they must cooperate and share information in order to survive.
|There’s less stress
here, too. If you can adjust to the manana attitude and remember
that manana doesn’t necessarily mean tomorrow, it just means not today,
you will realize that everything will eventually get done that needs doing
and with far less frustration. Rather than worrying, go to the plaza,
sit on a bench, and watch village life pass before your eyes. You
will see a family out for a stroll, a little boy riding on his father’s
shoulders while Mom buys her daughter a balloon, you’ll notice the teenage
girls going one direction in the plaza while the boys pass the other way,
all of them casting furtive glances at the ones they like, and you’ll see
old friends who will sit down with you for a chat because they’re in the
plaza doing the same thing you’re doing—enjoying life!
||I’m not implying that
Mexico is Shangri-La, but I think it’s closer to paradise than any place
you can find in the United States or Canada. Here in this land of
majestic mountains and rolling countryside, you will find a gentle people
willing to welcome you into their hearts. You will have more time to explore
other interests and develop your talents because you have more freedom,
better health, less stress, and someone else to take care of mundane chores.
The low cost of living allows you to splurge on luxuries that would be
prohibitive anywhere else and to take advantage of world-class resorts
that are only a few hours’ drive away.
