Mexico Health care makes the News

Well I never...!

Something occurred tonight on the CBS Evening News with Katie Curic. Between the “war” this and “Tiger” that was a story that I'll bet you never thought you would see in a million years.

“Mexico's public medical/health care system is becoming overburdened by immigrants, U.S. Immigrants.”

That's right, Mexico is feeling the pinch from U.S. And Canadian immigrants who have moved to Mexico to retire. As legal immigrants, we are eligible for and… Continue

A Option To Be Considered

I've been here for two years now, and the question I get asked most often is how I, a "Surrey girl" from BC, ended up living in a small fishing village just north of Puerto Vallarta.

I came here via a sort of circuitous route which began in Surrey, traveled to Europe and then down here. To clarify this one.... I was recently laid off, yet again, from a company who closed it's doors. I was then fed up with working hard, for little pay, unappreciated, in jobs where I obviously had little to… Continue

My First Christmas in Mexico

Pictured is my daughter, Lily.

My first Christmas in Mexico has set the tone for the dozen that have since followed.

As newlyweds our first year in Mexico, we were very, very strapped for cash. We had come to Mexico on our honeymoon with my then two-year-old daughter and were staying at my aunt’s ranch in Zacatecas. Joel, my husband, worked "under the table" as a mechanic to make a little cash. And I worked at “home” in our 19’… Continue

Lake Chapala’s Micro Climate

The three mountain ranges separating Lake Chapala from Guadalajara and the lake with its cool breezes makes this a paradise for those of us who live here in 74 degree average temps year ‘round. National Geographic rated it as the second best climate in the WORLD, after Nairobi, Kenya.
