Retire In Mexico: A Retiree’s Story
Ready to Retire
Last week, I told you about my friends Shari and Dan who retired to Baja (click here to read about it). Their story is amazing, inspiring, wonderful — but it’s not unique!
Retirees really are living better for less. In fact, here is yet another “Mexico retirement success story” from Ronald G. He emailed me last week with some beautiful pictures and he has been kind enough to allow me to share them with you. Here is his email (I’ve edited and consolidated it for brevity.):
Ronald’s Mexico Retirement Success Story:
“Barbie, I hope this finds you well. I wanted you to know that this last winter I made the big move to Mexico, partly because of your faithful newsletters.
“I have a gorgeous home which I am still decorating to my liking — 3 large bedrooms, each with outside verandas, two full baths — one up-one down, a brand new laundry room containing my new Bosch washer and dryer.
“I enjoy a full “gringo-style” kitchen.
“The house is 12 yrs old, built by the owners, a wonderful couple retired from Continental Airlines — they have home in La Puenta, CA, and here, and Chapaa.
“Regarding their house: it backs up to deep lush yard with golf course lawn, several fruit trees, cilantro, chilies, roses and many other varieties.
“The rent? 2,500 MP a month / gardener 70 pesos every 2 weeks, maid 100 pessos once per week. In essence I feel very “wealthy” for the first time in my life at 67 years of age, because my monthly living costs are 10 percent of my income. Pretty good ratio?
“Wonderful people here — quiet and quaint puebla — within 2.5 hours of Guadalajara, D.F. Morelia and Guanajuato. We sit on a water abundant area, next to Camecuaro.
“If you’d like to peruse my personal photos Barbie, feel free.
“I do hope you are as impressed as I am — mind you, the pics of the house were taken before I moved into it. I’m certain you find the best properties for the buck when you veer away from vacation destinations, or places that have large populations of gringos and Canadians. “Tangancicuaro has about 10 American families…maybe more – I keep encountering “new” ones at Walmart in Zamora.
By the way I was asking if you were impressed with the “life package” I managed to work out. I can’t emphasize enough how far smiles and interest and general friendliness will take you in assimilating into a small town here. I love it!
“Please feel free to use any pics, etc. for your newsletter, Barbie.
“All the best for the time being… Ronald G.”
Why put it off when virtually anyone can enjoy an abundant retirement with luxuries and amenities that — usually — only the rich enjoy… a life of abundance, prosperity, luxury. Stress free living is just that: completely stress free… and you don’t have to be a millionaire to enjoy this kind of luxurious lifestyle.
Over 500,000 U.S. and Canadians are living and experiencing the rewards of retiring in Mexico right now — this very minute.
For many North Americans, retirement means waiting… waiting until you have enough money… waiting for that one day.
The Dallas Morning News has reported that as many as a million U.S. citizens now live in Mexico. These people are living in Mexico and enjoying the beauty, culture and cost-savings this affordable country has to offer. Yes… Dreams of retiring to an exotic locale, complete with sun-drenched beaches, a high-standard of living, and plentiful recreation…. is no longer a dream; it’s a reality — and it’s within your reach, too.
