Americans move to Mexico in search of a better life

Millions of Americans live in MexicoIn an earlier article, I wrote about the fact that more than one million Americans are currently living happily in Mexico. While these Americans come to Mexico because they feel inspired with the way Mexicans live their lives, this is not the only reason why they are deciding to make such a move.

A very interesting commentary on this week’s issue of Forbes magazine covers the same subject. The author states that this is a trend that shows no sign of slowing down and that some of the other reasons why Americans are flocking south of the border is not purely due to the milder weather or to retire, but also because of the attractive health care plan and work opportunities Mexico offers.

At a time when the USA is struggling with a soaring unemployment rate, Americans moving to Mexico find that even if they find a job that pays less than back at home, here they have access to a comprehensive health care plan for a small flat fee per year, and a considerably lower cost of child care, housing and food.

It is not uncommon for people to emigrate to other countries in search of a better life. It’s gratifying to see that so many Americans are finding that opportunity in Mexico.
