International Living Website, came up with The 5 Best Places To Move To If You Don’t Like The Election Results, and guess what… Mexico is number one on the list!
Amy Schumer said she’d move to Spain. Bryan Cranston said he’d move to Canada. Jon Stewart said he’ll move to another planet. At last count, 23 celebrities have claimed they’ll leave the country if their preferred candidate doesn’t win the presidential election….
Celebrities—and anybody else who’s found themselves saying, “I’m outta here”—take note: Many excellent-value, warm-weather, close-to-home options exist an easy hop from the States. These are places where you can spend less while you live better. (And it’s a lot easier to tune out the political noise when you’re in another country.)
Here are International Living’s editors’ picks for the top five places to escape to if politics has got you down…
There is only one place in the world where you can enjoy an affordable overseas retirement, live right on the beach at affordable prices, yet remain within minutes of the U.S. by car…
Plus, right now with the current exchange rate of the U.S. dollar against the deflated peso, Mexico is a huge bargain.
With its moon-lit fiestas, languid white-sand beaches, ancient colonial towns set in the rugged Sierras, and Mayan pyramids rising from the misty Yucatan jungle, it’s no wonder so many people are starting new lives in Mexico.
With rapidly rising fuel, healthcare, food, and travel costs back home, it’s nice to know that there are still places where you can live well without burning through your retirement nest-egg. Mexico is one such place.
A move to Mexico means you can still enjoy the amenities you were accustomed to north of the border, including cable TV, high-speed Internet, and modern home appliances. And if you prefer, you can even bring all of your favorite things with you without paying import taxes.
“I absolutely love my new life here in Puerto Vallarta,” says expat Jack Bramy who moved to the popular beach town last year. “In fact, I think it’s perfect.”
Jack lives in a nice two-bedroom apartment with a large balcony overlooking the pool. He’s half a block from the beach and only pays $575 a month, including cable and internet.
“A place like mine back in San Francisco would run about $3,000 a month or more,” says Jack. “My only utility bill is electricity, and it’s about $30 monthly without using the air conditioning.”
This eclectic coastal city has been popular with international travelers for years. Hollywood first discovered Puerto Vallarta in 1964, when Night of the Iguana, starring Richard Burton and Ava Gardner, was filmed here. Tourists and expats have been flocking to the beaches, narrow cobblestone streets, and towering hills overlooking Banderas Bay ever since.
Mérida is another great example of the many expat havens on offer in Mexico. In towns and cities all over the country, you’ll enjoy easy living, glorious landscapes, extraordinary value on real estate, and an affordable cost of living… These are just some of the reasons why droves of Americans are moving south of the border.
Flight time from Atlanta to Cancún is two-and-a-half hours; from Los Angeles it’s four-and-a-half.
