Mexico – International Living’s Top Retirement Haven 2017
The New Year means “Auld Lang Syne,” a new set of resolutions…and the publication of International Living’s latest Annual Global Retirement Index. And this year the top spot goes to Mexico, our North American neighbor to the south.
Every year International Living’s in-house experts and worldwide network of correspondents compile data on a growing number of countries—24 for this year’s index. We rate cost of living, real estate, climate, healthcare, and a whole host of other factors to find the most affordable, convenient, and comfortable countries in which to retire abroad.
Mexico always features among our top 10 destinations in the Index, and usually among our top five. It’s home to more North American expats than any other country in the world. And no wonder. Mexico offers a diverse geography, with everything from white-sand beaches to high-mountain colonial cities. Its climate ranges from moist, tropical heat to dry desert and everything in between. It is rich in casual beach towns, vibrant Spanish-colonial cities, and small country villages. Low prices, friendly people, and a laidback lifestyle are also found here… And today, with the Mexican peso at historic lows against the U.S. dollar, Mexico is more affordable than it’s been in years.
Well over a million U.S. and Canadian expats are estimated to live in Mexico already, either full- or part-time. As a result, you’ll find a plethora of expat havens in Mexico…places where you can settle in easily and make yourself at home.
