Thinking about retirement? San Miguel might be the perfect option for you!

Lots of people want to retire to a beach. My husband, George, and I gave up the Jersey Shore for the Mexican interior 12 years ago, and we haven’t looked back.

When friends asked us why we were moving to San Miguel de Allende, high on a desert mountain plain three hours north of Mexico City, it was easy to summarize: perfect weather, lots of cultural offerings, outstanding restaurants and a comfortable, gracious lifestyle. The lower cost of living was also part of our decision, though some of those savings are offset by inflation.

Most homes in San Miguel don’t have heat or air conditioning. With the temperate climate, you just don’t need it.
Thanks to its 6,200-foot elevation and location in the high sierra, the temperatures stay below the mid-80s F during the day most of the year, with January seeing some cooler days and cold nights.
There is also very little humidity and many sunny days throughout the year. It’s just plain comfortable, weather-wise.
