Are you thinking about investing, retiring and living in Mexico? Two of the most popular Mexican destinations for expats are Puerto Vallarta and Playa del Carmen, which area would you choose?
Both towns started out as small fishing villages and have developed into hotspots for tourists and expats. Playa del Carmen and Puerto Vallarta both offer affordable real estate, including luxury oceanfront, and golf residences with all the amenities you may not afford in other parts of North America.
There is a lot of advice out there about foreigners buying a vehicle in Mexico, including stories about tourists purchasing and registering cars in their name or registering the vehicle in a Mexican Nationals name. Neither of these options is a secure choice and may put your vehicle at risk.
Does the winter weather get you down? If you dream of spending winters in the Mexican sun but you are not ready to give up your life and your ties to your hometown why not become a snowbird in Mexico?
It is a significant life change to move to a foreign country, but living in Mexico part time may be the answer to your dreams. There are many beautiful towns in Mexico to choose from, we suggest you become a Riviera Maya snowbird.
Expats looking to invest in business or purchase property in Mexico will want to have their residence visa in order. Typically you will provide documents proving your income and show that you can support yourself while living in Mexico, but if you are an investor or own real estate in Mexico you may already qualify for a Temporary Residency Visa.
Temporary Residency Visa
This visa is designed for foreigners who intend to stay in the country for more than 180 days and up to four years. The temporary resident card will only be granted for one year. After the first year, temporary residents can apply for one, two or three years renewal of the temporary resident card.
