Puerto Vallarta earns #1 spot

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico is named the undisputed NUMBER ONE destination for American retirees.  With its rich local and colonial culture, lavish beaches and affordable real-estate, Puerto Vallarta offers the low-cost, laid back lifestyle retirees seek to find in a community.

Currency and Travel Time major factors

Of the top 5 international destinations Puerto Vallarta is the only destination with its currency "unofficially" pegged to the dollar and is located only a 2-4 hour flight from most major US cities.  The other 4 are European destinations.

The Mexican Peso has steadily lost ground against the dollar for the last 25 years.  Theses Peso devaluations automatically increase the purchasing power of an American retiree earning his pension in US Dollars.

The Euro, in contrast, has fluctuated between 1.20 and 1.50 per dollar in the last year alone. As the Euro went up last year, it reduced the American retiree's purchasing power by 25% putting extreme financial pressure on someone living on a fixed income.
