Living in Playa del Carmen as a Single Woman

Watch the full replay of my chat with Trish. Trish is an American expat who found herself in Mexico after living in Afghanistan for over 10 years.

Trish moved to San Miguel de Allende first and found it to be a bit too cold for her personal preference. That’s when she looked into Playa del Carmen as her final destination. She now has her permanent residency, signed her first lease, and will give you her perspective on retiring in Mexico.

You’ll learn:

  • How Playa del Carmen compares to San Miguel de Allende
  • Her residency process
  • How she found her current rental
  • Her cost of living
  • Adopting a pet in Mexico
  • Her tips to new expats in Mexico
