Ten Things You Will Love About Moving to Vallarta
You’ve moved to Puerto Vallarta (or maybe you’re thinking about moving here and want to find out what these ten things are to entice you and motivate you to get with the program). There’s so much to do, you’ll never find enough time for all the enjoyment. Your friends back home think you’re swinging in your hammock, staring up at coconut palms, suffering from extreme boredom… but they couldn’t be more wrong. You’re on permanent vacation but that doesn’t mean you get lazy. True, your relaxation meter is going to be in much better territory but you’ll also have time to do things you’ve always wanted and have leftover time to schmooze with your new friends.
Number One always is time spent soaking up Vitamin D in Puerto Vallarta. It’s a healthier lifestyle for so many reasons; including Two… you’ll be eating better. Fresh fruits and vegetables, grown locally, sans GMO are available for at least one third the price you used to pay. Three, you’re sure to lose weight; the result of the increased amount of walking you’ll do. We take the bus almost every time we head out, simply because we won’t need to worry about parking, traffic, and wear and tear on our vehicle. Four, we guarantee you’ll look younger. We’ve not met one person who’s moved to Puerto Vallarta who hasn’t visibly dropped years, for all the above causes.
Five, you can finally read that list of books you’ve been trying to get to over the years. Whether you’re sitting on the beach, relaxing at home, or turning in for the night, you’re going to have more time to hit those books with bliss and intention. What’s the skill you’ve always wanted to learn? Number Six is taking up the instrument you had planned to play in college but were too busy getting good grades so you could get that great job you have now retired from, and it’s time to fulfill that desire. Chances are you’ll find someone in Puerto Vallarta from whom to take lessons, but if not, YouTube is a wonderful source for learning just about anything; painting, mosaics, crochet, photography, scrapbooking.
Seven , since you’ll be able to afford a housekeeper, you can now grow that garden you’ve dreamed about. Imagine the envy of your visitors when you explain you planted and cultivated those roses, bougainvillea, banana, orange and lime trees!
Eight …You’ve read so many books and now you are ready to write your own. You’ve never had time to tell your story and you know it’s a good one, considering some of the duds you’ve burned through. Join the Writers Club and sharpen your pencils!
Dinners out cost a lot of money up north, especially when you toss in the cost of cocktails, beer and wine but Nine is where you can afford to go out for three meals a day and find lovely little comida corridas on the back streets. The list could go on and on but let’s end with Ten: the free time to volunteer, golf, sail or hike. Dive, swim and fish. The choices are endless. All you need is to figure out how you will schedule all this happiness!
Que es cómo es.
