Retiring To Lake Chapala: A World Of Possibilities

Updated: Apr 23

Michaela and I just finished having a dinner party last night with 2 close couples that we met down here and it gave me pause for reflection. I realized that after 10 years of living in Mexico I am sitting down to dinner and Spanish is the first language spoken. What a diverse group we had. Michaela is from Romania but speaks Spanish fluently; a good friend who is also Romanian, speaks Spanish fluently too since he has been living with a Mexican lady; the Mexican girlfriend only spoke Spanish; the gentleman from the the other couple is from Guatemala and speaks Spanish and English; and his girlfriend is also Mexican and she speaks Spanish and English. So the common language for everyone on the table was..... Spanish, and that's what we used! What a great evening and (I reflected) what a departure from my sheltered upbringings in Canada!

Are you looking to change your life? Are you looking for an adventure and to stretch yourself out in the world? Many people make the move to Lake Chapala because it is an easy place to live where English is spoken most everywhere and the cost of living is cheap. Those are good reasons but there is so much more about expatriating to Lake Chapala than that. If you are looking for culture, adventure, learning (or improving) your Spanish, making friends from (literally) around the world in an exotic setting, then you need to be considering Lake Chapala as a place to move to!

Michaela and I make it simple for you by providing you with a wealth of information on our website, our Retirement Seminars and lists upon lists of referrals (just ask) to help you make an easy transition to your new life abroad.

Ask yourself. Where do you see yourself in a few years? Are you happy still grinding away in Canada or the U.S.? How happy are you? Make life not only better, but more exciting and interesting by discovering all that Lake Chapala has to offer you.
