Economic Refugees

We meet them everywhere along our travels.

From Thailand to Mexico, from Guatemala to Ecuador, even in Italy or Panama, people known as economic refugees are looking for a better lifestyle, lower cost of living and fewer regulations than what they experience in the States. Having cashed out of the housing boom, some travel abroad where their dollars will purchase estates with maids and gardeners; others are living the good life on their Social Security payments as compared to just getting by in their home towns in the U.S.

Either way they are enjoying near perfect climates and relaxing lifestyles. All these people have one thing in common; they are not afraid to embrace a new adventure.





All of our books lead to adventure. Don't miss out on yours!

Always a reason

Some flat out donít believe itís possible or that it can be done.

Others cite the concern over health care, the necessity of staying near grandchildren or the safety of their routine; well-known restaurants, friends, and familiar activities. Some say itís just too much hassle to up and leave the safety of habit. They fear their new lives will be topsy-turvy and uncertain and, well, they are correct about having new and interesting adventures.

These are the people who prefer to stay in their neighborhoods and not encounter locations of more freedom, less regulation, and a bohemian lifestyle of more opportunity.

Yes. Opportunity.

Such as the option of meeting new people from other states and countries and the possibility of personal growth. Or the ability to live a simpler life without the stress of watching utility and fuel bills climb and your fixed income purchasing power dwindle.

Not that living overseas is a panacea, life always has a way of giving us challenges. But those who have made the choice to live outside the States in friendlier climates with manageable costs always say how they feel a burden has been lifted off their backs. Many state that if they had known how pleasant it was to live elsewhere, they would have made the change sooner.

Chapala Living Guide is based on our first hand eperience of living in Chapala, Mexico

The Chapala, Mexico Guide offers step-by-step instructions with over 115 pages chocked full of details for your first visit to this extraordinary area, such as: How to get there and how to get out, where to stay and what to expect, activities that make this area the largest Expatriate community in the world and more.

Itís not for everyone

Granted, there is no place as comfortable or predictable as the United States. Customs and perspectives in other countries can be an issue if you let it, and if you are the type that prefers the certain, you might not be a good candidate for a move overseas. But if daily costs seem out of control for you, if you have had it with the weather or if you just feel that a change is due, moving to a low cost country such as Thailand, Mexico, Central America, or the Philippines could hold some special appeal.

Many have made this move and have paved a path. In fact, you could join a free forum and learn from other Expats about the ins and outs of living in a different country.
