Puerto Vallarta Move

Post New Topic

I just retired a few weeks ago and want to enjoy my life in Puerto Vallarta. I will visit Puerto Vallarta in September and hunt an apartment or house there. My ultimate goal is to move there in November or December.

I would like to find a 1 or 2 BR apartment or house near the beach, preferrably where many restaurants, bars and cafes are located.

How much should I expect to rent in the area? Some bloggers mentions that it would be around $700 to $800 a month.

Thanks

Will you be looking for a long term rental and have a residence visa, which will indicate that you do intend to stay? That can make it easier to get longer contracts at a better price.
If you do not know the area, you might consider getting your residence visa approved in the USA, at a Mexican consulate, then making the move to a temporary abode. That will give you time to 'pound the pavement' while finishing the visa process (tramite) with INM, etc., as you discover new neighborhoods, meet informative people and eventually secure a good location at an agreeable price.
September is an OK time to search, but, by winter, supply will be limited and prices will be higher; as you probably know.
If you are free to go to PV now, as a tourist, it would give you more time to secure a place, in person. Once done, you could go back to the USA and apply for the visa, and move with a destination established.
Buena suerte.

You are reading old old blogs, apparently. Current rents for a 2 bedroom condo with A/C near the beach in PV are around $1500 or more, and you can expect to pay 50 to 100% more than that in the high season months of October through April. I will also mention that Puerto Vallarta is HOT all year round.
