Mexico has an extremely large expat community with more than a reported 1.2 million full time foreign retirees and more so from those just coming from a close geographic country like the United States as Mexico has much to offer for those coming from other various global regions. Celebrating modern amenities, services, restaurants and some of the best stores allow expats to live harmoniously with locals and all while achieving some of the most amazing service. It’s time to say “gracias” to the Retirement Index for recognizing Mexico’s appeal as a retirement haven for everyone, offering a blend of convenience and a welcoming community so speaking Spanish is not a requirement to successfully navigate.
