If it’s a Pacific coast lifestyle you’re in the market for, Mexico offers many good options, including the destination that qualifies as my top recommendation for a fully appointed Pacific coast lifestyle that’s also turnkey-ready right now:
Puerto Vallarta is neither the cheapest retirement choice in the world nor the cheapest option within Mexico. You aren’t likely to find it a bargain compared with the cost of living Stateside… unless you compare it (as you should) with the cost of living in top Pacific coast locales north of the Rio Grande. Puerto Vallarta could be called a bargain compared with the cost of living in Newport Beach, for example.
In Puerto Vallarta, though, a budget-friendly cost of living is not the point.
This isn’t developing-world living. This stretch of Mexico’s Pacific coastline has already been developed to a high level. Life here can be not only comfortable, but also easy and even luxury.
This is a place to come to enjoy a world-class Pacific coast lifestyle.
Note that I didn’t say world-class Pacific coast. You can find that many places, including in Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama, for example. What you don’t find in those places is the same standard of lifestyle to support the views.
Generally speaking, Pacific coast destinations in Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama are still emerging… places where, sure, someday, maybe, there will exist international-standard amenities. This is for sure the case all along Nicaragua’s beautiful Pacific coast… and it’s true, as well, though increasingly less so, along the Pacific coasts of Costa Rica and Panama, where, in both cases, truly international-standard development and infrastructure are only today beginning to appear on the scene.
In Puerto Vallarta, you aren’t buying for someday. In Puerto Vallarta, you have the opportunity to buy a world-class lifestyle in a region with world-class beaches and ocean views that is supported, right now, by world-class golf courses, marinas, roadways, restaurants, and shopping.
This is a lifestyle that is available only on a limited basis worldwide, a lifestyle that is truly (not metaphorically) comparable to the best you could enjoy in southern California… if you could afford it.
