Why Mexico? Why Lake Chapala? Why Not !
October 26, 2012
Hi Everyone, I hope you will Stop, Look, and Listen to the below video.
I’ve made several score of videos about life in Mexico and at Lake Chapala in particular. Some of them have been interview formats, but
none yet has captured the essence of life here quite like the
video presented below.
Now, one major caveat (warning) is in order before you watch it. No, I’ve not lost my marbles, I know the video is about retirement at Merida, Mexico. It’s in the tropical area of Mexico (read too hot for me) and no doubt some retirees love life there for PART of the year, but we love our lives here all of the year.
Why…because, here we have year around spring like weather with an average temperature of 73 degrees.
Now, if you’re from Merida or have friends there don’t be mad at me. I’m sure life there is great, but I’ve met people from there and have researched it, and I’m reliably told that for part of each year you have to “Get out of Dodge” or feel like you’re melting. unless you like really hot, humid weather.
The reason I’m providing the video is not to poo poo Merida’s weather or deter you from visiting there, or even retiring there if it suits you, but because I want you to listen to all the nice things the North American guy in the video has to say, because that’s just how we all feel about our life here at Lake Chapala.
Permit me just one more point about life here at Lake Chapala which I think makes it a better retirement location for North Americans than other parts of Mexico.
You can drive here to Lake Chapala easily from the USA in a day and a half. and Merida would be 3 full days.
OK, Here's the video. Just think Lake Chapala each time the man says Merida… except the part about tropical weather.
