Judy and I have put our house on the market as of yesterday. We currently live in Houston, and will be moving to Cozumel as soon as the house sells and closes. We are excited, and scared to death!!!! ;-) It has been our dream to move to Mexico for about 20 years. We like Cozumel as a starting point, but a bit concerned about the cost of living. We are both in our mid 50s, and will be living on our savings until we turn 59 1/2 to access our retirement. We plan on a budget of about 3,000 US per month. We will rent, then possibly buy. We are taking very little with us except some small sentimental items, and our two dogs. Still figuring out health insurance, or of we'll even have health insurance. We also plan on living on a tourist visa until we figure out exactly where we want to go in Mexico. We will continue to bank in Houston, and ATM pesos to pay bills. Most of our friends think we're crazy with a few excited for us, and cheering us on. We're tired of the rat race, and realizing that life is short. We are coming to Cozumel this month to try to find a rental for 6 months to a year. For those of you that have made the jump, does this sound like a good approach? Any advice would be appreciated.
