If you’ve been considering relocating to paradise, you probably have a few questions that need some answering. You may be wondering “why should we choose Mexico?”, or “why Puerto Vallarta?”, perhaps even “do I make the move now?”. Vistalegre Realty is here to calm your nerves with a fun exercise called the Five Whys, in which we answer five questions that are sure to help you in your relocation thought process. If you are thinking of investing in or relocating to tropical Mexican paradise, read our Five Whys and see why it is THE time to invest in Real Estate in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with Vistalegre Realty.

Why Mexico?

Moving to Mexico is a no-brainer, and the reasons are endless. For starters, the people are welcoming, cost of living is low, and buying Real Estate is safe and easy. Not to mention, when you buy Real Estate in Mexico, you really get your money’s worth, plus some. What might be a multi-million-dollar property in the states would be significantly lower priced in Mexico but get this — beachfront and much larger. Mexico’s climate is generally warm, the gastronomic experiences are out of this world (!!) and of course, tequila is plentiful. Not to mention the breath-taking beaches that you often see on the cover of travel magazines that serve as world-class destinations. Excellent and significantly inexpensive health and medical care is another plus, and of course, we can’t forget the overall laidback lifestyle.

The increase in quality of life while seeing a decrease in the cost of living is a huge factor for folks who decide to relocate to Mexico. In fact, those who relocate report that their lifestyle has been greatly enhanced while their cost of living has significantly decreased. The US and Canadian dollar simply goes farther in Mexico, both in terms of lifestyle and Real Estate ventures. Talk about more bang for your buck!

And we can’t forget the United States! Mexico is extremely close to the United States and direct flights fly in and out daily, making Mexico an especially attractive relocation option for folks who may have friends or family in the United States or who will need to travel back and forth occasionally for work. Don’t worry, if you’re looking to relocate or retire, acquiring residency is straight-forward and easy.

Why Puerto Vallarta?


Who doesn’t love Puerto Vallarta?! Puerto Vallarta absolutely has it all. From the beaches and ocean of the Pacific to the jungle and freshwater rivers of the Sierra Madre mountains, there is nothing that Puerto Vallarta does not offer residents. The laid-back lifestyle and picturesque backdrop have attracted folks to Puerto Vallarta since day one, and this coastal city only continues to grow in popularity, as more and more people are relocating to this tropical paradise now more than ever before.

When we say paradise, we truly mean it. Where the jungle meets the sea, Puerto Vallarta has no end to the number of activities offered and has a gastronomic scene that has all the world-renowned foodies talking! The people are simply one of a kind, always welcoming, always friendly, making each and every being feel a sense of community, a sense of belonging. Crime seems non-existent here in paradise. Rich culture, beautiful views, unbeatable weather, and tons to explore, Puerto Vallarta is one of, if not the, happiest place on Earth.
