U.S. retirement trends have been tracked for the past fifteen years by the International Community Foundation, a research group out of National City, California. Statistics on Mexico coastal communities has recently been released.
In order to better understand some of the key trends and drivers for U.S. retirees in Mexico’s coastal areas, the Foundation conducted an online survey between June-November 2009, resulting in over 1,000 total responses. They targeted U.S. retirees over 50 years of age that are residing part-time or full-time in Mexican coastal communities including Puerto Vallarta, the Riviera Maya, Cabo San Lucas, Rosarito, La Paz, Loreto, Puerto Peñasco, and many smaller villages along Mexico’s extensive coastline.
Mexico continues to be a long-term retirement destination, especially in cities that already have a large retirement community. For further interesting details, go here.
