Leo Buijs

Author Leo Buijsabout this book: Living or Retiring in Mexico is an insider's guide to all things expat, perfect for anyone looking to relocate, short or long-term, to sunny and affordable Mexico. The 180-page book is comprehensive in its delivery covering choice of location, becoming a permanent resident in Mexico and importing your car. It tackles the full-gamut of what to expect when moving anywhere in Mexico and includes a great deal of insight from the author's own personal experience. With the average age of retirement being pushed further down the road, Mexico has become an increasingly popular option for people looking into other viable, sustainable alternatives. 'Living or Retiring in Mexico' will also be useful to the huge and ever-growing collective of travel bloggers, most of who look for affordable home-bases outside the US and Canada.

Since the author retired at age 54, "Living or Retiring in Mexico' is his 6th book he has written and the cover has a picture of the small village he lived during the last 15 years as a 'snow-bird'. Winters in Mexico, summers in Canada.

 Handy and up to date info for anyone traveling or moving to Mexico

As we are working on realizing our dream to move to Mexico, we are collecting lots of information on the subject. This book has lots of pertinent info that is useful and fun to read as it ties into actual experience from the author. Highly recommended!

 The most up to date book on life in Mexico for Expats

Here is the book for you to read if you have been to Mexico, and want to find out about spending more time there. I have read many other travel and retirement books on the Mexico, most of them good, but I believe that none have covered the needed information or many details that this book does. The author claims that his book can be divided into two parts: the 'fun part,' and the 'not so fun part.' The not so fun part includes info on the permits, visas, other legalities and the nitty gritty of moving to Mexico. He also gives advice on how to handle bribes, hurricanes, buying property in Mexico.

This book is a collection of personal stories, anecdotes and descriptions that's blended with practical information and hints which are very helpful and fun to read.

Living or Retiring in Mexico contains everything you might want to know about life as an expat in sunny and affordable Mexico. A map in the beginning of the book, a good index and a glossary in the back. I enjoyed reading it and wished that I had read it many years ago, as it is also useful to those of us already living in Mexico. [by Jeannine Perez]
