Life in Puerto Vallarta is unlike anywhere in the world...


Living in Puerto Vallarta is unlike any other place in Mexico.  I'm American, from OC, California and I have lived in several cities throughout Mexico, for a total of 4 years as of 2009.  I recently moved back to Puerto Vallarta after living a year in Cabo San Lucas.  I missed living in Puerto Vallarta. What is it that I love about living in Vallarta so much?  Well, for one, living in Puerto Vallarta is so inexpensive compared to the states, I can easily live like a king here.  My 2k square foot villa costs me less than 30 dollars a month for utilities (obviously more during the summer when I run the AC frequently.)  Champagne dinners for 2 on the marina can easily be less than $50.  Fruits and vegetables that are normally quite pricey in the states are extremely cheap here, not to mention far more healthy and flavorful.  This list could go on...


Aside from inexpensive living in Puerto Vallarta, there is something to be said for living in paradise.  There are few people lucky enough to live where most people can only vacation, and there is certainly a reason Puerto Vallarta is one of the most popular destinations in the world- extraordinary sunsets, beautiful beaches, and tropical rainforests just steps from your front door.


I lived in New York before moving to Mexico.  I thought I would never leave, simply because I loved living in a city where there was always something to do.  Puerto Vallarta has exceeded my expectations when it comes to having things to do.  For those who enjoy mainstream entertainment, there are modern options; movie theaters or blockbuster video, gourmet restaurants, sushi, world class golf, and designer shopping.  For those who have a taste for the more authentic Puerto Vallarta living experience however, there is no end to local events and celebrations, the greatest Mexican food restaurants, authentic holiday events, local musicians to see, countless day trips to nearby cities and attractions, etc...


Puerto Vallarta truly is a great place to live.  This site has put together a number of helpful articles, including visa and residency requirements for living in Mexico, event calendars, and even shopping guides.
