That’s right, one million Americans are living in Mexico, taking advantage of the wonderfully warm climate, the thrill of the Pacific Ocean and the inexpensive cost of living. The town most ex-pats choose is named Puerto Vallarta. Located in the Mexican state of Jalisco, the town is home to millions of American, Canadian and British ex-patriots who’ve found a little slice of heaven right in the heart of the tropics. Nearby the Pacific, the Bay of Banderas, and the Ameca River agricultural valley, this little town has quickly grown into a popular vacation destination, as well as a place for foreign seasonal and year-round residents.
A Little about Puerto Vallarta
The town has long been known for its agrarian economy but started to become a tourist destination because of it’s scenery and proximity to the oceanfront. Miles of beaches and fishing opportunities, as well as water sports and local shopping helped to make it so popular. In fact, there are several direct flights from the United States west coast to Puerto Vallarta. With such conveniences and so much to do, it’s no wonder that tourism now accounts for about 50 percent of the city’s economy. In the nearby localities, fruit, tobacco, corn, chile, beans, livestock and fishing make up the other half of this Mexican town’s economy. But the largest employers in the area are in food, beverage, hotel and entertainment, greeting and caring for all the foreign visitors and residents.
Living in Puerto Vallarta
Tourists and natives aren’t the only people in Puerto Vallarta. The city boasts a large retirement and seasonal community. To keep up with demand, there are a number of condominiums being constructed, most with American-sized kitchen, baths and bedrooms and all the comforts of home. The reason so many Americans, Canadians and ex-patriots from other countries choose to live in Puerto Vallarta is its affordability. Here, groceries and entertainment is comparatively less expensive. Utilities also cost less and because of the beautiful climate, people enjoy outdoor activities all year round. Stress in the big cities doesn’t migrate to Puerto Vallarta. The town, despite its growing foreign population, remains a quaint place to live, work and play. Many opportunities are available day in and day out. From sailing, to power boating, to water skiing, surfing, sunbathing, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, or exploring the country side. What’s more, the States are just a short plane trip away for those who might get homesick.
