Hello fellow Philadelphian! I grew up in Philadelphia and moved to Mexico after enjoying California for 16 years. I moved to Puerto Penasco, just one hour south of the border with arizona.... I have traveled extensively throughout Mexico and can recomend different areas based upon what you want to experience. If I can be of any help to you, do not hesitate to contact me. Best Regards, Heidi .. ps, enjoy that east coast food while you can.. the food in Mexico is wonderful.. but nothing beats a cheese steak / phila pretzel. :-)
You should look into Baja, especially Cabo. We've got the weather, not one but TWO oceans, and the amenities most retirees want. I'm sure I've blogged about it, but if not just send me a message.
