Mexico – The top retirement haven in the World!
In the most recent Global Retirement Index conducted by International Living, Mexico emerged for second year running as the number one retirement haven in the World. According to International Living: “This country is so diverse that everybody can find exactly what they want: beautiful, warm oceans, crystal-clear tropical lakes, fertile farmlands, temperate-but-majestic mountains, starkly gorgeous deserts, small towns or sophisticated cities. And because of its geographic diversity, you can also choose your favorite climate: from warm and dry to warm and sultry to spring-like temperatures all year in the Colonial Highlands”.
The Global Retirement Index takes into account real estate costs, entertainment and culture, safety and stability, healthcare, cost of living, infrastructure, climate and special benefit programs. Mexico ranked first place among 29 countries, where it stands by far as the best option among LatinAmerican countries, and also obtains outstanding scores in culture, healthcare, and infrastructure outpassing even countries such as Spain and Italy. Altogether is the top retirement heaven.
Within Mexico, the top rated and suggested cities are Mérida with its bohemian “people’s” city atmosphere; Xalapa, regarded as a beautiful affordable cultural gem; as well as Manzanillo defined as a casual living-city by the sea.
On the very media-discussed issue on safety and stability, the data used it is based primarily on Interpol data and State Department statistics. It also takes into account the civil liberties and political rights granted by each government and finally, from in-house experiences and reports from expatriates living in each country. That being said, Mexico is rated with a 92 over 100.
So what are you waiting, come down to Mexico and enjoy your retirement with us!!!
