"Before retiring in San Miguel de Allende, it is important to understand that Mexico has a different set of laws, customs, and lifestyle than other countries. Expats should research the cost of living and housing options in the area to make sure they have a comfortable retirement. They should also familiarize themselves with the local culture and customs, healthcare system, and where to find basic services such as groceries and banking. It may also be helpful to invest in Spanish classes or find a local guide to help show them around and understand the local way of life. Finally, expats should make sure they have the correct Mexican visa and documents before emigrating," said one expat who made the move to San Miguel de Allende.
