When you see the term “Golden Years”, various meanings enter your head. From the beginning of the end, and to the lucky ones, the years of freedom with gold! To the current generation of people about to retire or who have recently retired, the term “Golden Years” can also refer to the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. That is having the financial freedom and the time to get pleasure from doing their preferred pastimes or even help within their local neighbourhood.
Sometimes retirement can coincide with significant changes in life. As time goes by, some retirees tend to drift away from contact with their old work colleagues, and will spend their money in completely different ways. They will have more time to undertake new hobbies, sports or other activities. They may sell up the long term home and even move away to a new locality.
Finding the right retirement destination is something that everyone should consider as they enter their retirement years; even if you wish to stay within your own community, it is good practice to consider whether you will be happy spending the rest of your life there.
So what makes Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit an ideal retirement destination?
Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit on Banderas Bay, Mexico, make the ideal retirement destination as it is already home to many expats and has clean water, clean food, safe living conditions and a modern health system. At the present time, the number of Canadian and Americans living in the community is continually growing with the construction of tens of thousands of new condos and thousands of new houses having taken place. There are approximately 350,000 inhabitants now in this once quiet little Mexican fishing village and a guess is there are some 50,000 Americans and Canadians during any time through the “high season”. As none of these retirees will have any work to go to, they will all want to seek the same things and that is to benefit from their years of hard work and enjoy life to the full. Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit, with its perfect weather, allows good people with time and money on their hands to find things to do that are most pleasing.
