See: http://money.cnn.com/2005/04/11/reti...canretirement/

A lot of Americans retire to Mexico due to a sunny climate, tropical beaches, and low living expenses. Also, Mexico is in a short proximity to the United States.

A lot of people are either leaving, have left or are planning on leaving this place.

I lived in Asia between late 1999 and 2003.

Can't wait to go back.

I'm not sure if it's media hype, but I've heard that growing numbers of Americans who are priced out of San Diego, are buying property across the border and commute in daily.

While I don't have much interest in living in Mexico at the moment, at least not for an extended time, I wouldn't rule out retiring there for the same reasons that others choose to do so.

I'm not sure if that's true. A side comment, I think the border is worse than the 15 freeway in Northern San Diego County. You move three feet per 5 minutes. That would be a nasty commute.

Default commuting from tj

It's true the housing prices in san diego are so high many people have done this. I used to work with people that were doing this.

The commute is actually better than driving 15 South from temecula or marrieta.

I have an uncle that just sold his house (more like mansion) in San Diego and moved to Mexico just recently. He moved to a gated community which is what typically most Americans do anyway. (nothing new there) He'd did mention that his place got "ripped off" twice already since he'd been down there possibly due to an inside job. (what a shame)

He lives halfway in the pennisula by the port. He said he really likes it down there.
