Life in Mexico is quite easy. You’ll be fascinated by a culture steeped in history, full of natural resources, and surrounded by friendly people. A relaxed lifestyle awaits you, but one that is also filled with activities and some new challenges. More than 20,000 expatriates are currently living in the Yucatan, with some living in the bustling City of Merida, while others preferring the quiet coastal villages. The cost of living is lower, making it easy to live there and retire earlier.
