Mexico Retirement Trends

August 2009
Riviera Nayarit & Puerto Vallarta Mexico Retirement Notes

Overview—Next 10 Years

70 million Americans and Canadians will retire in the next 10-15 years. Mexico is the most popular destination and will continue to provide North Americans with cost-effective retirement opportunities as the economy evolves and rising costs in the USA eat away at people’s nest egg. With the weather always permitting and lending to the perfect lifestyle of “mañana,” Mexico is the common sense place to disembark from a lifetime of hard work and make those savings go a long way.

Cost of Living/Retiring

The peso has dropped 41% vs. the dollar since August of last year, making Mexican vacations, rents, home costs and retirement more attractive compared with those in Europe, the U.S., or the Caribbean. The cost of living is half of what it is in the USA. Forget Europe, they do not know what the word inexpensive means. No winter clothes, no snow tires and no heating costs. Mountains, coastal plains, high valleys, Mexico has every climate.

Ease of Access

American travelers and retirement home buyers can reach Mexico’s tourist/retirement playgrounds/spots in two to five hours and most of those flights are non-stop, a big factor as airlines, hotels prices costs and homes prices level off for the first time in 15 years.


Mexico is just as safe as it is in the USA, probably safer. Crimes happen along the border and in the border towns. Puerto Vallarta and other retirement hotspots have been immune to the violence. The Puerto Vallarta area has 15,000 to 20,000 full time expatriates. Including Sam’s Club, Wal-Mart (with two new Wal-Marts under construction) several McDonalds, Carl’s Jr. Pizza Hut, Dominos, Blockbuster Video, Lions Club, Rotary Club.


Americans are different. We like our way of life, big cars, big trucks, cheap gas. The fact that you don’t get searched everytime you enter a building here in Mexico makes a statement to the non terrifying racist attitude that the world should adopt. Americans are different and try to be politically correct. You can’t call them Hillbillies no more, they are Appalachian Americans. What? Here in Mexico if we don’t know your name and you are white, we call you Whitey, if you’re fat, we call you Fatty, if you’re short we call you Shorty.

The Not-So-Great Mexican Swine Flu Pandemic of 2009

By Robin Noelle

In the last week, my life in Puerto Vallarta became even more surreal than usual when I started seeing people wearing surgical masks at Costco, while lounging at rooftop pools and strolling along the beach. I marveled as the government began shutting down schools-not just in Mexico City, but locally too; and then bars, clubs and restaurants followed. I was beyond baffled when airlines from Canada cancelled all incoming flights and all cruise lines were diverted from Mexico. How is it possible that none of these people own a map? Witnessing firsthand the effects of hysterical, uninformed media coverage, my sympathies went out immediately to my neighbors and other Vallartenses (citizens of Puerto Vallarta) who would needlessly suffer because of irresponsible journalism and hyperbolic statements from US government officials.
