Why do people move to Mexico?
When we asked people why foreigners move to Mexico, they responded...
"The rich culture, colorful landscape, and attractive climate are some of the main reasons that attract expats to move to Mexico. With its affordable cost of living, it is an ideal destination for those looking to experience an exciting and vibrant lifestyle while keeping expenses down. The friendly and welcoming locals are another great reason to live in Mexico, and the country's excellent infrastructure and healthcare system make it a great place to settle. Additionally, Mexico offers a diverse range of activities, from bustling cities to relaxed beach towns, providing visitors plenty of options to explore," said another expat in Mexico.
" I am moving to Rosarito in 2025 when my condo will be completed. Reasons are because I live in Las Vegas, Nevada and my son Lives in Carlsbad,CA. I have my first new grandchild there and it is a one hour drive from his door to Rosarito. I just drove to Carlsbad from Vegas yesterday and it was a little over a five hour drive. My second reason is because I will be 65 next April and will still be able to drive to San Diego and use Medicare for my medical needs. I love Mexico, the Mexican people and Mexican food is in my top three foods to eat. The bonus is where else can you buy a brand new ocean front Condo with lot's of amenities on the West coast for less than a million dollars? I was going to move to Puerto Vallarta which I love but it's a flight to the states every time to visit or use medicare. Plus the summer humidity is intense in Vallarta and it's San Diego like weather in Rosarito," wrote a member who made the move to Rosarito, Mexico.
