The sad thing is that millions of Americans go into medical debt every year because of the lack of medical reform in The United States. Some people can’t even afford their medications and end up not taking them when faced with the choice between their health or their livelihood. One simple bump in your medical record can be the difference between living in debt or being debt-free.

This is a big reason many choose to retire in Mexico. You can significantly lower your cost of living without sacrificing your quality of life. Mexico has great healthcare that, in some cases, can even be free.

As a result, many people have a higher quality of life by moving to Mexico. I know many people who can now afford things like regular house cleaning, gardener, eating out 2x/a week, going out for coffee, and other luxuries they wouldn’t be able to participate in back home.

Mexico isn’t perfect. Like any country, it has flaws. However, it still beats other modern societies in many aspects of daily life. Medications are usually much cheaper than in other parts of the world, and the healthcare system is truly better! Doctors take their time with you and offer you their personal line to get in touch with them. You’re not just a number here. You’re a person.
