If you are looking for a tropical paradise to call home, then Puerto Vallarta is the perfect choice for you. Puerto Vallarta offers an affordable lifestyle, beautiful surroundings, abundant amenities and friendly people. It is the perfect destination for retirement living, or as an opportunity to make a strategic real estate investment. While some people reside part-time in Puerto Vallarta during the winter season, more and more are deciding to call Puerto Vallarta their full-time home.
Not surprisingly, Puerto Vallarta was nominated as Best City 2019 by Conde Nast readers. [link: https://bit.ly/2XLUUKz]. Located on spectacular Banderas Bay, people are continually drawn to this beach side jewel every year. Tourism is the area’s major economic activity, and there is no shortage of fun activities to occupy one’s time. First on the list is relaxing on sun-splashed beaches, or relaxing over drinks at a gorgeous sunset bar. But Puerto Vallarta offers so much more. Other exciting adventures include whale watching, scuba diving, snorkelling, horseback riding, sailing, or jet skiing. There are also many, fine golf courses to choose from. But one thing is for sure, you will never get bored. And, perhaps most importantly, both the local and expat communities are eager to welcome you help you.
Although Puerto Vallarta receives a great deal of tourist activity, it also has a large community of retired U.S. and Canadian citizens, so you won’t have difficulty finding places to socialize with other English-speaking people. Those that do live here full-time are often found devoting time to local charities. There is no shortage of groups to get involved with, and if anything, one might have to work on slowing down, given all the town has to offer.
There are art exhibits, concerts, cocktail parties, tequila and wine tasting events, and a non-stop calendar of festivals and celebrations. All varieties of music are also well-represented in Puerto Vallarta, and one of the top electronic music festivals in the northern hemisphere is held here every year. Puerto Vallarta also offers a very lively and diverse English-speaking live theatre and cabaret scene. This diverse entertainment scene continues to grow every season.
It’s not surprising that Puerto Vallarta is quickly evolving into a popular destination for expats to buy real estate. There are many factors that make PV the ideal location for retirees and investors. Firstly, its international airport has numerous direct flights from the States and Canada. Some of these regular flights are only a few hours in length.
Whether it’s a new construction condo, a townhouse in a gated community, or an authentic, re-sale home, there are numerous buying options. For those looking for some ongoing income, renting out your property full or part-time to tourists is a frequent practice in the Puerto Vallarta market.
Buying real estate in another country is a very important decision, and can initially appear to be a complex process. However, it is not dramatically different from purchasing a home in Canada or the United States. But, there are some aspects of the process unique to the process in Mexico. That is something that we can assist you with, answering your questions, and demystifying the process.
