#1 Connectivity

One of the main reasons why Puerto Vallarta has become a favorite destination to retire in is the excellent connectivity it has. Its international airport receives around 1,000 national flights and 1,500 international flights from different countries every month.

It’s also a well-connected destination by land, offering easy access to metropolitan centers like Guadalajara or to charming Pueblos Mágicos (Magical Towns), as well as other beautiful beaches in the Mexican Pacific.

#2 Weather

In Vallarta, you enjoy a pleasantly warm climate year-round. Its average temperature is 80°F (27°C), and there are practically never heat waves during the summer.

On winter nights, the temperature can drop to 61°F (16°C), but you’ll never need to bundle up too much. It just makes for very enjoyable weather.

#3 Medical Care

A very important point for retirees is the issue of medical care. Vallarta has excellent medical infrastructure, with state-of-the-art health centers and clinics so that you never need to worry.

Of course, one of the strongest points for retiring in Vallarta is its beautiful beaches and the endless list of activities the area offers.
