â€œMexico has suffered this year from a serious case of bad press. That’s good news for you if you can see past the headlinesâ€¦. `I just spent three days in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, in a meeting with 150 very sharp folks from around the world, and the consensus is inâ€¦ the best time for Mexico is now.â€™â€
This quote is from International Living. You can find them on the web.
I couldnâ€™t agree more. The exaggerated bad press about the swine flu and the drug cartel has really hurt Mexico. I recently was in the states and I couldnâ€™t believe how scary the press makes Mexico sound. I want to raise my window and shout, â€œIâ€™m mad as hell and Iâ€™m not going to take it anymore!â€
To all of you up north, please take note that the drug problems are in the border towns and that the seriousness of swine flu is FAR worse in the United States.
In the town where we live, San Miguel de Allende, the real estate market is picking up as foreigners are realizing how far their money can go here. Also, I’ve talked with people who lost a lot of their retirement stash, but realize that if they move toÂ Mexico, they can retire now and not put it off any longer.
