  1. Hi,

    What an amazing and in-depth post, I can really tell that you’ve done your homework in terms of the area and this new trend that’s becoming popular among foreign retirees in Mexico. Thanks so much for sharing. I hope you’ll check out my blog on retiring in Riviera Nayarit, Mexico, where I talk about events and sites to see in the region as well as in the rest of Mexico. I look forward to seeing you stop by: http://www.retireinnayarit.com! Have a great day, Rick

    Amazing overview as always Ileane. I’m an avid reader of your articles at the Medical Tourism Escapeartist. The cost of living in Mexico is cheap and since the place is filled with so many cozy and relaxing hotels, baby boomers tend to stay for good.

    Since I’m already here, do you think this is a good site to consider – http://www.mycolombiaplasticsurgery.com/? My sister’s husband is going to Colombia for a nose surgery. He was referred to this site. Maybe you can recommended other medical tourism facilitators in the country. Looking forward for your response. Thanks!

      Tanaris, I’ve not received any patient-generated reviews on mycolombiaplasticsurgery.com. For your own peace of mind, I suggest you talk to Shai Gold of My Medical Trip Advisor — it’s a minimal fee for a personal consultation to match your needs with a medical provider and facility insurance companies have vetted for sending their patients. Here’s the link: http://community.traveling4health.com/my-medical-trip-advisor.

  3. Looking to retire in Cancun trying to find out information on dentist and taxes..

  4. I want to share this great opportunity to retire in a unique place in MEXICO: http://www.loopnet.com/lid/18204880

    The property Las Higueras is located in Veracruz, Mexico. A natural setting on the banks of the river Cotaxtla, connected by modern means of communication to Boca del Rio, Veracruz.
    Las Higueras is a property with only ten unique exclusive villas; each villa has almost 7,000 ft² in complete balance with the nature.
    More than 60,000 ft2 and surrounded by the majestic Higueras trees, full of fruit trees (mangoes, bananas, limes) and vegetation.

I would like to invite you to be a guest on the Know Before You Go radio show where you could ask your questions and get answers from a person who is qualified to answer your questions. With your permission, I will send you more information.
