Traditional and safest places to retire in Mexico

If you are considering spending your retirement life in Mexico, or maybe, to possess a property to stay on vacation, then you are most likely to only focus on safes places to retire.

In Mexico, security is an issue that American people must take into consideration before traveling, according to the Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC), an American institution in charge of encouraging cooperation for security between private institutions and The US Department of State.

And it is true. There are some unsafe Mexican cities and neighborhoods, where it is not so much recommended to travel, and living is not considered as safe as it is supposed to be.

Nevertheless, Mexico has excellent destinations to travel and live

Year after year, Americans choose only certain destinations to go on vacation and to spend retirement, due to the flow of local investment, and the great efforts made by both Mexican and US authorities, in order to keep tourism and security stable. Resulting in a great experience which only a place like Mexico is able to provide.

In other words, only certain destinations keep a level of security worthy to live. 

Regarding this, I have to demonstrate, throughout this post, the worthiest places to live in Mexico, chosen by Americans, endorsed by the OSAC as well as the Mexican authorities.
