Moving to Mexico was key to retiring young and being able to live a high quality of life on a fraction of the income that my husband and I used to have when we were both working in Canada.
Our tiny town is made up primarily of Americans and Canadians with a few Australians, who came in search of the same thing we did — an awesome lifestyle on a budget.
Due to the low cost of living, people are able to retire earlier and the average age of new arrivals is mid-fifties.
There are younger people – some single, some raising families – but they are not retired. Many have started their own businesses and others work for local businesses.
