What’s It Like To Live And Retire In Cancun, Mexico?

Recently I came across a blog post, where a retiree has summed up his experiences of living in Cancun, Mexico. The couple has been living in Cancun for 6 years now and their perspective is very valuable for those who are still on the fence regarding retiring to Cancun, Mexico. Tom Price has written beautifully about Cancun, its highlights, features and infrastructure. This is by all means a very valuable resource as it is a first-hand account.
Here are the main points of the article:

    1. Cancun has all amenities comparable to that in USA.
    2. Cancun has an excellent public transport system.
    3. Cancun has Walmart, Sams Club, Costoco, City Club, Home Depot, Grease Monkey, Superama, Mega, AutoZone and Plaza Las Americas.
    4. No dearth of sports arenas: local “Triple-A” baseball park and soccer stadium and water sports.
    5. Immigration facilities are quick and efficient.
    6. Cancun has an inexpensive, comprehensive and world class medical care system.
    7. Cancun has a rich social life. There are many clubs and Cancun has a cosmopolitan look about it.
    8. One can indulge in snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing and boating in waters around Cancun, Akumal, Cozumel, Puerto Morelos and Isla Mujeres.
    9. Lots of restaurants serving local and international cuisines.
