Dear Overseas Opportunity Letter Reader,

"Does it ever bother you that your life is over?" Kaitlin, my daughter, turned off-handedly, looking back at me over her shoulder without breaking stride, to ask her out-of-the-blue question.


Retire To Riviera Nayarit, Mexico

A Luxury Level Beach Home You Can Afford

July 22, 2011, Riviera Nayarit, Mexico: 

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

Retire to the beach. That's the dream for many.

To realize this dream in the United States, you'll pay multiple millions for a house on the sand and upwards of US$1 million for a decent place near the beach with an ocean view.

Even shopping south of the Rio Grande, you can pay millions for an oceanfront property.


Retire To Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Your #1 Right Now Pacific Coast Retirement Option

July 21, 2011, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico: Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, is not the most affordable retirement choice in the world or in Mexico, but it is our top pick for a fully appointed, full-amenity, even luxury-level but affordable retirement on the Pacific Ocean.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

Puerto Vallarta is neither the cheapest retirement choice in the world nor the cheapest option within Mexico. Our correspondent includes a series of detailed monthly budgets for living in this part of the world in this month's issue of my Overseas Retirement Letter, which features a complete report on expat life and retirement in P.V.


Retire To Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

In Praise Of Easy

July 20, 2011, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico: Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, is a top Pacific coast lifestyle and retirement option, thanks to its beautiful coast and its luxury-level but affordable services and amenities.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

Leaving the Puerto Vallarta airport our most recent visit to this part of the world, we knew right away that we were back in North America. Alongside the highway, we saw Wal-Mart, Home Depot, a mega-grocery store, Domino's Pizza...

"Can we go to Wal-Mart?!" asked young Jackson enthusiastically from the back seat.


Retire To Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

From The Marina To The Romantic Zone--A Tour Of Our Favorite Pacific Coast Retirement Option

July 19, 2011, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico: Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, is our preferred overseas retirement destination in Mexico and our top pick anywhere for luxury-level but affordable Pacific coastal living.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

"Marina Vallarta is relatively new," reports Correspondent Lauren Stanley, "and it's a city within a city. Marina Vallarta has condo and hotel high-rises around a protected 450-slip marina, with shops and restaurants on the buildings' ground floors.

Readers Say

"I have to say that you seem to dig deeper into the feel of a particular place and to do comparative analysis between alternative places. Your approach is more sophisticated and thoughtful and therefore more useful than that of other information sources covering these same subjects."

— John W., United States
