Retire to Mexico? Let Me Help!

Retire to


Let me help!

Just in case



Yes, you can

retire early, reduce your cost-of-

living, and live better than you do

now, in Mexico.

Rest assured thousands of people have already done it. Mexico is where they live, work, and play. People from all walks of life are living the good life for a lot cheaper than they could do it anywhere else.

Retire to Mexico

Dick and Barbie

Indeed, Mexico has it all: Lower healthcare costs, pleasant weather, idyllic lifestyle, and so much more. Mexico will help you save money on practically everything you need right now. Imagine slashing your living costs by a third… or even a half. That’s a lot of money in your pocket!

YES… You CAN live, work and own property in Mexico — without having to give up your present citizenship. It’s not a trick. It’s not a loophole. It’s a fact and it’s your right.

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.

So what will your life be like in Mexico?

How much does it really cost?

Most importantly, how do you get started?

This article answers all of these questions for you. My newsletter, my free reports and my books provide you all the information to retire to Mexico that you need.

If you’re looking for the perfect place to retire… a place to vacation to… a place to escape the winter months, you’ll discover why more and more people are choosing Mexico to make ends meet — and getting more bang for their bucks.

So read all about it! I’ve got lots and lots of information waiting for you right here, so dig in and enjoy.

Oh yes… and I almost forgot! If you feel like commenting on any article, please be my guest.  At the end of each article, there’s a little “add comment” feature — so feel free to make use of it. I *do* get a lot of email and keep pretty busy, but I guarantee you will always get a reply from me!

    I have been researching places to retire in Mexico for several years. I am already retired on S.S. plus a small (less than $300) pension. My husband also has a small S.S. check. We are not able to afford high monthly costs (between the 2 of us we bring in roughly $2,300), but it would appear that we can live comfortably in many places in Mexico. We have looked most recently at the Pacific Coast between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo, but the area we like most (La Manzanilla) is still quite a ways from a good major hospital. My husband is quite healthy at 67, but I am now 69 and had triple bypass surgery several years ago. My cardiologist keeps a close watch on my health, and I’m in good shape now, but it would be foolish for me to think I’m never again going to need cardiac surgery. Having lived in Florida for eons, we both love warm weather and the beach areas, and I have finally discovered the Yucatan. Puerto Morelos and Merida are appealing, but so is San Cristobal de las Casas. I am looking for the most up-to-date healthcare and cost of living information on this area. Any resources would be most appreciated.

    Hi Barbie,

    I have recently retired to La Paz, or at least it feels like that compared to my previous job working in a Bank in England.

    It is certainly true what you say about the lower cost of living. Forgetting some the common sense things such as Gas and Household bills, it is amazing how much cheaper things such as food can be, although you HAVE to shop around.

    I have been here 5 weeks, although have visited La Paz (where I live now) numerous times before, and I have just about found the best places to buy things now, but I keep finding new places with better selection at better prices. Unlike in the US or the UK the small businesses outnumber the large corporates meaning you get fewer stores with everything in, but when you do find them they appreciate the business so much more and if you go regularly you can get some really great deals.

    Love the forum, reminds me of a UK one I miss called MoneySavingExpert.

    We would like a contact in the Ensenada are for expat communities or at least which communities to look at. We have looked at the Rosarito area and it is very nice, but it seems there would be a lot more to do in Ensenada. We are just not sure were to look.

    I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one today..

    Hi to all!
    I just got back from a few years in Mexico, Honduras.
    They were great.
    The reason i am back is Social Security “needed” to see me i person for some stupid reason. It took all of about 15 minutes when i went in. Anyway it’s over and i am headed back later this year.
    The best advice i could give any of you reading Barbie’s blog is “read her newsletter”. Although i had in the past already lived in Honduras the info was very helpful. Later this year i am headed back. One thing that i did that most do not is stay at one location the entire time i was there, i saw lots of things and travel was relative cheap.
    Yall have fun when you go don’t just go and sit in your affordable apartment and watch life go by, you can do that here in the states, go live.

    Hi to all. I’ve read your book and have been reading your info for a few years and it has helped me in many ways, This will be my seventh year to head to Mazatlan for vacation.
    Blessed to have a job in the states that I enjoy but looking forward to more time in Mexico.
    Wanted to ask your readers if anyone has used Rosetta Stone? Would like to be able to speak Spanish.

    Hi Barbie,
    I’m interested in moving to Mexico, have been for a few years now. I am on S.S. disability and have some money saved. I spoke to the S.S. Admin. about moving to Mexico. They told me that I could spend 6 months there,but I had to move back to the states after that. I really am ready to move but how am I able to stay past the six months?
    Thanks for the great e-mails, there are always informative,
    Linda Thompson
