One of the most asked questions is, "Can I retire or move to Mexico and live off of x number of dollars?" People are generally on a fixed income of retirement funds, social security, and savings. The other factor that plays into this question is that it is generally difficult for an ex-pat to work in Mexico, and even if you could find a job, it would pay in pesos at an equivalent rate much less than in the United States or Canada. So, most folks that live here usually earn in dollars and spend in pesos.
