Why Move to Puerto Vallarta?
In a recent survey of expats in Mexico, we found an array of reasons for people’s decisions to relocate to Puerto Vallarta. In the past several months, the usual list of explanations for making this life-change has grown. We share these points of view not to raise debate but simply to shed a light on what motivates a person to leave roots and replant.
The largest percentage in Puerto Vallarta seem to be retirees who look forward to stretching their fixed incomes; finding rent, food, transportation and entertainment much less expensive than the the states. Canadians are a part of this movement, as well though the Canadian dollar does not extend quite as far as the USD.
Climate is a big factor. The inventory expands to no longer needing to shovel snow or drive in it, to easing arthritic joint pain. We have friends in Puerto Vallarta who never go to the beach, wear long sleeves and complicated hats, with skin white as lilies; they have no desire to tan but simply wish to not be buried in several layers of clothing for half of the year. Being able to keep a limited wardrobe, including cottons, linens, swimwear and flip-flops has it’s blessings, not to mention the ease on the clothing budget.
Medical care and retirement communities that are springing up, not only in Puerto Vallarta but all over Mexico, have a huge draw for those who can no longer trust their medical coverage in the USA to take care of their needs.
One of the most fascinating, and truly sad stories, of which there are more than one, is that of a young family who found themselves left with few choices. It seems the father was undocumented; deported for dubious reasons; unable to afford legal representations, which could have taken years to forge through, and his wife and children managed to follow him back to his mother country. In Puerto Vallarta, with its fine education system, the children are learning the language, everyone is getting settled and finding all the wonderful things to love about their paternal heritage.
The political climate in the USA has turned many away from their homeland. These people exemplify the definition of ex-pat. They no longer can abide by actions of their own government and therefore have done an about-face and steadfastly stand by their position. This is not limited to North Americans; we have an influx of Brits in Puerto Vallarta, too, who have objected to Brexit and refuse to participate. Some claim they may return when and if conditions change but are just as happy to remain in Puerto Vallarta, where they manage to establish themselves with intentions of living happily ever after.
