There are endless possibilities for an inexpensive lifestyle and a great quality of life for those who choose retirement in Mexico. Mexico's modern infrastructure includes Internet
access, making retirement there conducive to working from home or running a small business. ABC News recently put out this video covering many of the advantages of retiring in Mexico.

One should consider a number of things when deciding whether or not to retire in Mexico. Firstly, what specific retirement destination is right for you? Mexico is very diverse, offering water and mountains together in may locations. You will want to decide on a climate that will best suit you for retirement. Mexico is hot and dry in the north, but hot and humid in the south. And, the Colonial Highlands offer year-round spring-like temperatures.

There's a myriad of real estate market options in Mexico. You can buy land and build a home; you can buy an older home and restore it; you can purchase a modern home in the city; or invest in a villa in a gated community. You can retire on the beachfront, a golf course, on the lake-shore, or in the mountains; the possibilities go on and on.

Health care is another concern to those wishing to retire. Mexico offers high quality health care. Many physicians have experience or training in the US and Europe. Health care in
Mexico is much more affordable than in the US. Mexico has been investing in recent years in high quality hospitals. The country is also developing a universal health care system for its residents.

There are an endless list of activities one can participate in during retirement in Mexico. Fishing, beach combing, mountain climbing, hiking, biking, scuba diving, fine dining, shopping, or visiting historical sites are just a few. Affordable prices allow you to indulge in a variety of activities and offer the opportunity to fully enjoy retirement in Mexico.

Affordability, access to modern infrastructure, beautiful scenery, moderate climates, quality health care and reasonably priced housing are just a few of the benefits of retirement in Mexico. Those looking to maximize their retirement dollars will find Mexico attractive.

If you do choose to retire in Mexico and purchase a home, consider getting an A-rated homeowners insurance policy from a company you can trust. Look for US-style policies with
broad coverage, easy to understand deductibles, replacement cost and actual cash value settlement limits.
