Here is a short video by CNN about some American Retirees living in Mexico. They are in Puerto Vallarta, where I lived for nearly 3 years. See what one man said how he can afford his 3000 square foot condo on his social security!
Whether you are thinking of Puerto Vallarta or even in the town I am in now: Puerto Peñasco also known as Rocky Point, I can find the perfect retirement or vacation home for you. Did you know you could buy a beach condo here in my town for about $89,000? We are a 3.5 hour drive to either Phoenix or Tucson, so close to the US.
They have a very active social life and say they have more friends in Mexico than they ever did in the United States, mainly because Puerto Vallarta is full of people just like them.
According to local government estimates, there are around 35,000 U.S. and Canadian citizens living in Puerto Vallarta, many of them retired like Mike and Sara.
“We get together and we have happy hours, we have wine and appetizers, we have coffees in different neighborhoods and we get together at different restaurants,” Sara Wise says.
Medical care is another factor they considered when they decided to move here. To their surprise, they found more options for quality health care and at much more affordable prices than in the United States, including procedures like surgeries and advanced dental care.
“The accessibility to the doctors is something that we never experienced in the United States and from what we understand it’s getting more difficult, not less,” Mike Wise says. “And the cost is somewhere between a quarter to a half of what things cost in the U.S.”
Puerto Vallarta has adapted to this relatively new, foreign clientele. Around town, doctors and dentists put out signs in English, and often have English-speaking employees.
Kimberly Altman, 63, a retiree from California who has been living in Puerto Vallarta for three-and-a-half years, says a doctor’s visit is usually $40.
