Best Communities In Mexico


Live Life Abroad in Mexico’s Gated Communities and Resort Communities

The United States is full of incredible places to retire or relocate. But what about somewhere beyond its borders? These days, retiring abroad is easier and more affordable, allowing you to broaden your list of potential destinations. So, if you’re considering outside of the US, take a closer look at an international destination like Mexico....

The Weather

If living in a warm locale is top of your list, then Mexico has you covered. Coastal locations, like those along the Yucatan Peninsula, will be hot and humid, with the most comfortable time of year typically being through the autumn and early spring months. But you can expect any time of year to provide the warm climate that’s so often sought after.

The Beaches

When you think beach destination, do you picture white sand beaches and turquoise waters? In Mexico, you’ll find these iconic beaches in Cancun and Playa del Carmen, where you can spend the day soaking up the sun, swimming and snorkeling. Your underwater adventures will showcase the incredible sea life that teems with rays, sea turtles and corals as well as underwater caverns. But other beaches scattered throughout the country offer different experiences, allowing you to indulge in activities like water sports in the Sea of Cortes or surfing in the Pacific waves.

The Other Outdoor Adventures

The beaches are a big draw, but Mexico is also full of other geographical landscape features, like jungles, forests and mountains. The avid outdoorsperson will appreciate access to activities like biking, hiking and climbing through mountains and forests. Or you can explore below ground in various underground rivers or cenotes, which are natural swimming holes formed from the collapse of limestone bedrock and exposing groundwater. These natural earth-filtered pools are filled with water so clear and pure you’ll feel refreshed just looking at it.

The Archaeological Sites

There are many reminders throughout the country of the ancient civilizations that helped shape the territory. The most notable—and arguably the most impressive—are the Mayan ruins found in the Yucatan Peninsula near the areas of Tulum, Playa del Carmen and Cancun. Breathtaking sites like Chichen Itza, one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, and the Tulum ruins—the only ones built by the sea and some of the most well preserved—will leave you in awe and thankful that you live close enough to take a trip to explore these ancient grounds.

Living in Mexico

There are specific factors to consider when making an international move. For starters, you’ll need a visa to live in Mexico, and the one you need to apply for is determined by how long you plan to stay—a couple months, a couple years, longer?

The cost of living is also low, so you can live comfortably, but just keep in mind that where you decide to settle can affect the amount you’ll spend. And make sure you’re aware of the costs of international money transfers and currency exchanges.

There are so many other enchanting reasons that make Mexico a top international destination to consider. So, take a moment and browse through these luxury communities, packed full of resort living amenities, and picture what life would be like abroad. What life would be like … in Mexico.
