Hello friends from Ajijic, Mexico and congratulations to Tom Grubb, my friend, for 1st place amateur at Clermont.
Life here in a small Mexican town filled with snowbirds and permanent retires offers a life well lived at less cost. In fact rents as low as $350 and as high as $1500+ per month are available. I’m currently paying $350/month for a furnished room in a community living situation. No car means no car insurance/gasoline/repairs, etc., and cost of living is much less than in the US. All in all life here is peaceful, friendly, relaxing, and geared to the thousands of expats who fuel the local economy with our social security income. The weather is Florida springlike year round…in the 3 months I have been here it has rained once. Blue skies are the norm. The downside, it’s Mexico and still third world, don’t drink the water, we operate on manana time so don’t expect anyone to show up on time, and roads, traffic and sidewalks reflect a country struggling to become first world but a long way to go.
Don’t hesitate to fly down, Mexico has its problems but it’s a great country for retirees with a way of life that values family, friendliness, simplicity and hard work. To all my shuffleboard friends, I miss you, I miss playing with you, and I wish you all the best.
