Cabo: Best Attraction for Retirees

Isn't it interesting?  You can get more bang for your real estate buck for ocean view property in Mexico then you can in the United States.  And, with the emergence of more commercial business availability in Mexico,  Cabo San Lucas has become the perfect location for those looking to relax and enjoy the simple side of life for awhile.  

Better Quality of Life"Economic and political ties alone will not attract retirees and others to live in a foreign land; beyond the underlying strengths of the Baja region, Los Cabos offers its residents a superb quality of life, with services and amenities to support a comfortable way of living." "The great outdoors — on the water and on land — is really spectacular here. The climate lends itself perfectly to outdoor pursuits, which is why Los Cabos is host to no less than six world championship golf courses and major international sports fishing events."
