My magnum opus, Retirement Secrets of Mexico, will be going live October 30th, and I’ve uploaded it for preorder on Amazon and will be listing it for sale on all other platforms as of that date.

The book offers eight virtually unknown Mexican dream destinations where one can live in safety and comfort on every sort of budget – from a nominal $1400 a month for a couple, to triple or more (the objective of the book is not to list the cheapest places in Mexico, but rather the best combo of value, safety, infrastructure, lifestyle, healthcare, weather, etc.).

It also does a deep dive into every aspect of Mexican life and all one would need to know in order to evaluate whether it’s for you. Chapters cover banking, health care, crime, renting and owning, building, starting and operating a business, immigration and visas, taxes, expat groups, culture, language, infrastructure, automobile ownership, and so on.

My goal was to create a guide that answered every question I’ve heard over my 16 years of living here, and to offer my thoughts on the best ways of dealing with challenges one will encounter. It originally started off as a non-fiction 30K word tome, but wound up at double that. Go figure.

Anyhow, if you want to order it in advance, you can do so at this link on Amazon. Paperback will be forthcoming maybe a week or two after the Oct 30 drop date.

    Just pre-ordered! I’ve been looking into Mexico part or full time since my books started taking off a few years ago. Looking forward to reading it.

    No doubt Mexico is enchanting, but New Mexico is the Land of Enchantment.

      Having spent time in both, I prefer Mexico, but both have much to recommend them…
