Retirement in Puerto Vallarta
When it comes to retirement options outside the United States, Puerto Vallarta has consistently been featured in lists produced by different important media outlets, worldwide.
The latest mention comes from the Huffington Post
In their US Edition, the Huffington Post featured The 21 Best Places to Retire Overseas in 2015, an entry posted on July 24, 2015 by Associate Editor, Yagana Shah. The 21 featured destinations included remote locations, such as Languedoc, France; Medellin, Colombia; and Hua Hin, Thailand. Two destinations in Mexico were highlighted: Puerto Vallarta and San Miguel de Allende, in second and 14th place, respectively.
Shah also makes reference to a recent article by Kathleen Peddicord, founder and publisher of Live and Invest Overseas. “Retirement overseas begins as an infatuation,” wrote the former editor and publisher of International Living. Then, backing herself by three decades of journalistic coverage and research, she makes strong case for the aforementioned list.
Both articles, along the very useful content about Puerto Vallarta and surrounding areas located within this website, along with our sister publication, mlsvallarta.com, are highly recommended for anyone considering Mexico’s Pacific Riviera as a retirement destination.

Gary Gates, a demographer with the UCLA Law School’s Williams Institute, a think tank dedicated to sexual orientation and gender-related law and public policy, theorizes that “baby boomers were the first generation to really have a visible LGBT community, and of course, they’re starting to retire now” and for many, Puerto Vallarta is the perfect place to invest their pink pesos with an eye towards future resort-style retirement living.
A recent study concluded that while the LGBT community has a median household income of $61,500 compared with $50,000 for the average American household, they are concerned about not outliving their money and maintaining lifestyle in retirement. Now savvy LGBT investors are turning to Puerto Vallarta to couple fabulous lifestyle with a much lower cost of living and affordable housing costs.
