Do you know Mexico’s best-kept secret?
Everyone comes to Mexico for their own reasons. One of the wonderful things about Mexico is Merida and the Yucatan and the wide ranges of places and people that you can find here. There is something for everyone in this part of Mexico.
When people start thinking about retirement, there are a lot of places that come to mind. You may consider places for the rich and famous, the kind of places that you read about but most could never afford. The city of Merida, the capital of Yucatan has made it to the top of several retirement and vacation home lists. More times than not you will read about the “historic center” or the Centro Historico of Merida. Centro is filled with beautifully renovated colonials, as well as many colonials are still waiting to return to glory. But there is more to Merida, a secret if you will, about the City of Peace. Centro is not the only wonderful place to live, there are many more hidden gems.
Merida is growing very quickly thanks in part to expats, and much of it is growing to the north/northeast. Because of this, there is a greater availability and accessibility of goods and services. Retirement should bring with it a level of convenience and ease of living. Shopping on the north side offers retail stores such as Home Depot, Costco, Sam’s Club, etc. that Americans know and trust. This area of Merida features planned areas of growth and development to fit the needs of an educated and informed shopper. Going in the other direction to enjoy the Yucatan Gulf Coast, from Merida, is a 20-minute drive to Progreso beach and other beach communities just waiting to be inhabited by retirees.
Residential developments have been planned and built since the late sixties and early seventies, continuing to this day. The residential areas are built with more parking, faster circulation, and easier access for automobiles. The homes are newer and the infrastructure in better condition. Newer homes have been built as free-standing structures and many being on large lots. Many houses also have large pools. If you like living in a high-rise, condo, or an upscale apartment, we have those too!
Safety and tranquility are extremely important. If you are considering retirement to Merida, you probably already know that Merida has the lowest crime rate of any city of its size in all of North America. Safety and tranquility have to be part of the package and Merida has it all!
Of course, with Merida, there is the sun and fun factor. If you love to walk or lay on the beach, swim in the ocean, or enjoy fishing or boating, living in Merida puts you just about 25 minutes or less from the water! When looking for the perfect place to retire, if living close to the beach is an important factor, look no further than Progreso!
