Many people are choosing retirement in Mexico. If you are thinking about retirement in Mexico but are unsure of where you want to settle, consider the beautiful little beach town of Puerto Penasco in Sonora. Known by locals as Rocky Point, this idyllic little beach town is only 94 miles from Ajo, Arizona and the international border. It is accessible by excellent toll roads and even has a small international airport, making it very convenient for all kinds of travel. Choosing Puerto Penasco for retirement in Mexico is a good choice for many reasons.
Excellent real estate deals. There is no shortage of excellent real estate deals to be had in Puerto Penasco. Whether you are looking for a private home or a condo in a resort style setting you will find it there. Buying real estate is fairly simple and straight forward, as well. Since Puerto Penasco is in the 'free zone', laws for U.S. citizens are simpler there, which is why it is becoming such a popular choice for retirees from the United States.
Incredible year-round fishing. For many people, retirement means more time to spend doing the things they love, and that includes fishing. The Sea of Cortez offers abundant year round fishing, which is another one of the main draws of the area. You can bring your own boat down and spend your days fishing at your leisure. There are several marinas where you will be able to store your boat for a low monthly fee.
Inexpensive living. Your retirement income is sure to go a lot farther in Mexico. For $1,500 a month, you will be living great. That kind of money doesn't go too far in the states, but in Mexico, it is a healthy income. If you buy a house and don't have to pay rent, you could even live on a lot less.
Great climate. Puerto Penasco enjoys about 300 sunshine-filled days a year on average. The weather is much like the weather in the southwestern United States. It is a desert climate, so days can be hot and nights can be chilly. Unlike some parts of Mexico, which have a distinct rainy season, Puerto Penasco gets rain throughout the year in short bursts.
Retirement in Mexico is becoming more attractive as prices for food, gas, and living in general continue to rise in the United States. You may think you can't even afford to retire if you are living in the United States, but before you think of having to go back to work, consider retirement in Mexico. Puerto Penasco, with its convenient location near to the international border, means you can easily go back and forth to visit family and friends. Its idyllic beach side location on the gentle waters of the Sea of Cortez will make you truly feel like you are living the life of luxury you always dreamed about but thought you could never afford. So why not consider retirement in Mexico? With Puerto Penasco's beautiful beaches, scenery, inexpensive real estate and friendly people, its really hard to find any reason not to!
