Learn What Your Life Could Be Like When You Retire in Mexico

This is NOT a real estate buying tour. There is no agenda to “sell” you anything. Our only goal is to introduce you to the Mexican way of life and give you all the information you need to make a smooth retirement in Mexico. In addition, you will get information about and see some rentals so that you can see what’s available at various prices. In fact, if you do move to Mexico, we strongly advise that you do not buy right away; it’s better to rent for at least 6-12 months before you make a buying decision.

During the San Miguel de Allende Relocation Tour, we’ll visit local shops and markets to discover the BETTER and MORE AFFORDABLE way to live. You’ll get to see first hand what’s available in Mexico and what the prices are like.
