The blog you are reading will be closing in about another week. Our New Blog Home that replaces this one is http://OurLifeInMexico.com. The blog is about Retirement Life here in Mexico. It is about us and our many adventures, food we enjoy and the recipes that go with them. Restaurant reviews. Laws of the land. Life among the people of Mexico, ideas to make life a little easier and safer for those that wish to retire to Mexico and just about anything we find of interest about the country we have chosen to retire to.
We live in the outskirts of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. It’s along the ocean about 1200 miles from the United States Boarder. That’s a two day drive when you are traveling without pets and 3 days if you are traveling with pets that need to be walked every couple of hours. Most of the roads from here to the boarder are cotta or paid highways which is the safest way to travel. We will share an article about that in the blog.
We don’t live “Along the beach”. We are about 10 minutes inland which makes property about half the cost of living where you can see the ocean from your front room window.
We have been together for 25 years most of which was spent in Wisconsin raising a family of five. They have all grown and are raising families of their own. We chose Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for two reasons. It is about 33 percent less expensive to live here than it is in Wisconsin and my wife was born near hear and actually raised in the area before moving to the states. That 33 percent looms large when you live of a fixed retirement income. We still visit the states about every six months but we avoid spending winters shoveling snow as we did for so many years.
We hope you join us on our new blog and visit often
