Retirement Destinations – Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit

The expression the

“Golden Years”

colloquially refers to the years after retiring from work or business. Some people call it the beginning of the end and others the years of freedom with gold! With the next age group of people about to retire or recently retired, the term

“Golden Years”

can refer to the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. This means having the time and financial backing to enjoy your favorite activities or community work.

Following retirement, important life changes can also happen with retirees virtually cutting themselves off from their network of friends and ex work contacts. They will develop totally different expenditure patterns and now will have much more time on their hands to develop any hobbies, sports or other activities they like. Many sell up home and move to start a new life elsewhere, which is where the search for retirement destinations comes into play.
