Is Mexico a good place to retire? Learn all you need to know!

Mexico is more than just the neighbor

Did you know that more than 1.5 million retirees, ex-pats, and digital nomads live in Mexico? Americans and Canadians have found that this country offers a low-cost living, excellent weather, world-class cuisine, and a high quality of life.

Besides, Mexican culture and history are one of the richest in the world. Mexico was home to the Maya and Aztec civilizations that built and left a widespread legacy and forged Mexico’s national identity over the years. Its gastronomy, art, crafts, and ceramics and the warmth of its people are just some reasons Americans and Canadians fall in love with this country.

Mazatlan is one of the top choices for living

When you think of the best place to retire, you may think of a tranquil villa, house, or condo on the beach, breathing fresh air every morning and sleeping with the sound of waves. Sounds lovely, doesn’t it?

Mazatlan offers that and a lot more. Located on Mexico’s beautiful Pacific coast, directly across the Sea of Cortez, Mazatlan offers stunning beaches and constant weather. Not for nothing is called ‘The Pearl of the Pacific’. The Spanish founded it in 1531 as a small fishing village. Then, in the 19th century, German immigrants arrived and rapidly began to make Mazatlan a thriving commercial seaport. They also founded the famous Pacifico brewery.

Nowadays, Mazatlan is one of the most famous beach destinations in Mexico, and it’s one of the cities with more private investment for condo towers and condo hotels. No wonder why! Even though Mazatlan is beginning to take off as one of the most popular destinations, it still remains more private, and it feels more authentic than other resort destinations like Cancun or Los Cabos.

Malecón de Mazatlán


Mazatlan is one of Mexico’s few colonial towns on the coast. It has miles of beautiful golden-sand beaches, fantastic seafood, and a friendly community of locals and ex-pats, and it’s considered one of the safest cities in the state. Also, its cost of living is cheaper than that of Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, or Los Cabos.

Another nice thing about Mazatlan is that, although it’s a small city, it doesn’t feel crowded. You can always enjoy a relaxing walk on the beach or a bike ride through its malecon, one of the largest in Latin America. And, if you like music, fireworks and parades, Mazatlan hosts one of the biggest and most important Carnivals in Mexico. Every year it gathers more than 500K people that come together to enjoy regional music, arts, and dance.

Golf, fishing, fine cuisine, and more

Don’t let the idea of a small city fool you. Mazatlan offers all the amenities you can imagine, such as PGA-rated golf courses, large resorts, world-class restaurants, bars, and more. In terms of medical care, Mazatlan has wonderful hospitals and clinics, dentists, surgeons, and more.

Mazatlan also has direct flights to the US and Canada. Some of these cities are LA, Dallas, and Phoenix in the US, and Vancouver, Whistler, Victoria, and Edmonton in Canada.

So, now you know! Come, visit and fall in love! Mazatlan offers you everything you need and a little more.
