In last month’s Newsletter, we explained how easy Trans Caribbean makes it for you to invest in Mexico. This month we will talk more about retiring in another country and how it used to be a foreign concept to many people. Now, it is becoming more and more common thanks to two main factors: the internet and the economy.
The internet has provided the needed connectivity to family and friends as well as access to important things like retirement accounts. And, while saving money has always been important to retirees, the recession plus rising taxes and health-care costs have made it a necessity for many. So, when retirees get priced out of warm-weather cities in other countries, less expensive alternatives in the Mexican Caribbean become more attractive.
Recently, we have experienced a huge increase in the number of people asking what it is like to retire in Mexico: the annual costs of things like health care, property taxes, and what the local grocery stores have to offer. It doesn’t matter if you are from the US, Canada or Europe, the questions remain the same.
Foreign retirement is becoming a reality for many people, especially the Baby Boomers coming into the market. The retirement they dreamed of just isn’t possible in their home country. But when you take those same funds to the Mexican Caribbean, other expats are living for half as much and have what is essentially a better quality of life, with less stress, less pollution and better climate. You might be surprised to learn that medical care is often more affordable and just as good — if not better — in Mexico than it is in other parts of the world.
Worried about crime rates in an unfamiliar land? Do your homework and you’ll see that despite what the media may want you to believe, the Mexican Yucatan continues to be one of the safest places to live in the northern hemisphere. Actual annual crime rates are far less than in most major North American Cities.
