If you’ve been thinking that perhaps escaping South of the Border may be the way to make your $’s stretch, then read this!
When you begin thinking of retirement in Mexico, you will have no need to feel you are like the “Lone Ranger” – heading off into the neverlands – you will be just one more lucky person heading into the sunset to enjoy the best part of your life!
Read what a real retiree has to say…
“I have rented a three bedroom , two bath home, with a maid’s casita and bath, garage, patio and nice yard about 30 miles south of Ajijic on the other side of Lake Chapala for $200 a month. I lived in Ajijic while looking for a permanent place and paid the Ajijic prices for everything and out here it is about half. Even the food, and pharmacies are cheaper because it seems that here everything is priced for the economy of the town.”
“A few months with the Gringos in Ajijic and it was an easy decision. I couldn’t be happier. It wasn’t an economic move but being away from the Gringos who do drive the prices up where ever they go it certainly turned out that way. I’m sure you remember the article in AARP magazine that offered Lake Chapala/Ajijic at $800 a month. Well the Gringos drove it up to an easy $1200 to $1400 a month. (Insert by Barbie: Still one heck of a cost of living!! )
“Well, I am here to tell you that if you don’t desire the hubbub of the crowd and you don’t mind a 25 or 30 minute drive to the larger towns tell your folks that $800 a month is a breeze.”
“You know the climate & beauty here, the people in the country, like in the U.S., are more friendly and helpful than city folks and the only thing we don’t have out here is the noise of the city...”
“My advice to a prospective person coming to Mexico is to rent for a few months and look around for what fits their economic and social desires. There is something here for every one. In my community I don’t spend or act like a Gringo and I am accepted as a member of the community.”
