Americans living in Mexico
Approximately one million Americans live in Mexico. Some are working, of course, others live in Mexico part-time, spending winter months in vacation homes where the weather is always warm. Many more Americans have moved to Mexico to enjoy their retirement years. They live in Mexico full-time and enjoy better weather, a more relaxed lifestyle, affordable health care and a much lower overall cost of living.
People from all around the world are retiring to Mexico, not just the folks from the United States. It just happens to be a close destination for those from the US and Canada. Whatever the reason for coming to Mexico, many people find it beneficial to invest in real estate in Merida and other regions in Mexico. Merida, the capital city of the state of Yucatan, is quickly becoming the favorite part of Mexico to invest in.
Merida attracts many expats and why shouldn’t it? Sidewalk cafes, tree-lined streets, and fresh paint embrace Yucatan’s best-kept secret, cosmopolitan Merida. Just a half hour from the Gulf coast beaches, this city is a center of commerce and home to universities, hospitals, friendly locals and beautiful colonial homes that would cost you twice as much in Central Mexico.
The expatriate community maintains a well-equipped English language library and hosts monthly get-togethers. The kinds of goods and services you would expect to find in a comparably sized city in the States are available in Merida too. From Office Sam’s Club to Costco and Sears, all the familiar fast food chains and several high-end shopping malls. Merida has it all!
There are many other locations in Mexico, of course, where you will find US, Canadian and other foreign residents, from small towns in the central highlands to large cities and the Pacific coast resorts. No matter what kind of lifestyle or climate you are looking for you will find it in Mexico. If you want to feel at home, Merida and its surrounding areas are just what you need.
