Baby boomers from the U.S., Canada and other parts of the world are discovering that Mexico is a great place to live and are joining the over 1 million expats who already call Mexico home. In Boomers in Paradise: Living in Puerto Vallarta, author Robert Nelson shows boomers what life is like in the "Jewel of the Mexican Riviera." A wide range of boomers with diverse backgrounds tell personal stories of how they came to live in Puerto Vallarta, and what their daily lives are like. Nelson shares these very personal accounts of living in Puerto Vallarta and shows boomers how to get the most out of a brand new life in Mexico, whether married, single, retired or still working.

About the Author:

Robert Nelson is the author of Adventurers Abroad: The New American Expat Generation, which profiles the new American expat generation and tells the stories of fourteen American expats and their adventures abroad. He is also a co-founder and editor of Expats In Mexico (expatsinmexico.com) - The Expat Guide to Living in Mexico - an online magazine for expats who live in Mexico and aspiring expats who are considering or planning a move to Mexico.

Review:

Nelson leaves no stone unturned in this collection of practical, honest, on-the-ground knowledge about Puerto Vallarta.

As baby boomers come of age, pockets of expat communities are blossoming throughout Mexico, with lush Puerto Vallarta topping the list as a prime destination for retiring and semi-retiring North Americans. A former marketing exec, Nelson has lived in "PV" for the past six years, entrenching himself in this Pacific Coast tropical enclave, and is using his authority to become the go-to guy for those interested in calling Vallarta home. As he writes: "The best way to learn about a place, I think, is to get to know the people who live there." While the cornerstones of this concise, easy-to-read volume include both statistical research and the author's expertise, the book's marrow is a wellspring of combined experience of some 14 expats from different fields and walks of life who have lived the city's evolution. From a medical specialist and lifestyle magazine publisher to several Mexico real estate gurus, the book captures professional and personal perspectives of Puerto Vallarta's longtime locals, some who have done quite nicely south of the border with their entrepreneurial drive. The one commonality that binds them? Each has succumbed to Vallarta's enchanting spell, many never to return to the hurried pace of North American life. Through their stories, answers from the most basic to advanced questions any potential expat might ponder are answered, from health care in Mexico, to working and investing in the country, and even sound predictions for Puerto Vallarta's future. In creating a book studded with both facts and local opinions, and in dispelling the myths about life in Mexico, Nelson has done a great service for anyone considering this country as a final destination. --Kirkus Discoveries
