Small-Town Comfort, Accessibility and Amenities Make Puerto Vallarta Popular Among Retirees
NEW YORK Finding the perfect place to retire can lead to one of the most enjoyable chapters of one's life. Puerto Vallarta, one of Mexico's most popular destinations, offers a small-town feel combined with modern facilities and services, year-round great weather, and an infrastructure that makes the transition to a new home easy.
Puerto Vallarta is often listed as one of the top destinations to retire by leading travel and lifestyle magazines like International Living and news media sources including US News. The destination offers a variety of luxuries and comforts valued in a retirement destination including proximity to the U.S. making it easy for family members to visit; affordable homes; first class medical care facilities equipped with all the latest and most sophisticated technologies; one of the edgiest culinary and art scenes in the world; popular American franchises including Wal-Mart, Costco and Home Depot; and a growing international community that has found it easy to retire on its Pacific Coast line.
Known as one of Mexico's most popular cultural and beach destinations, Puerto Vallarta is nestled in the Banderas Bay and features 40 miles of coastline, with a diverse topography, including tropical jungles, rocky riverbeds and steep mountainsides. It is a city that is rich in culture, and traditions that has maintained its unsurpassed beauty and character over time.
Visitors looking to make the destination a full-time or part time home will find that Puerto Vallarta is accessible while offering the highest level of comfort with many luxurious hotels offer top quality affordable timeshares for purchase. Home rentals for long periods of time and extended hotel stays are other options for those looking to move without purchasing property.
For those who enjoy being outdoors, Puerto Vallarta's superb climate allows for year-round golfing, fishing, tennis, hiking, and swimming. The nearby town of El Tuito offers stunning architecture and folk dance classes for senior citizens in the town's cultural center. To feel a little closer to nature, bird and whale watching and the opportunity to work with turtle sanctuaries are a fun and active way to enjoy the local surroundings. For those interested in a more educational experience, Puerto Vallarta's cultural centers offer the opportunity to learn how to paint, play an instrument or engage in arts and crafts activities on a daily basis.
