Halloween bash at a Tall Boy's gig, Mexico – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingHow it is to be a single woman in Mexico depends on where you live and what you’re looking for.  In a lot of communities there are a lot of eligible men, foreign and Mexican, who are interested in retired women. I’ve seen a growth in the number of single women in the Ajijic and San Miguel areas due to the growing independence of women and because they usually outlast their husbands.
 
For a lot of women, if they have family they tend to go back to the States or to Canada to be closer to their family. A lot of them have either grown past the grandparent stage and they’ll stay on their own. A lot of women share homes together and develop good friendships. A great deal of them have partners, male and female.
 
Generally, they find it very, very satisfying, mainly because there’s usually a lot of outreach they can do. There are a lot of charities they can get involved with and women in general like to get involved with those types of things. Thus, living in Mexico seems to be very, very satisfying for a lot of single women, for a variety of different reasons.

Ivy del Pozzo as guest MC for Apoyo a Gente Emprendadora, which educates and gives micro loans to women in the countryside, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingI do not find anybody here in Mexico to be disrespectful. I think we have a very respectful community. There are two shifts here. I am on the first shift and the second shift starts at 11 at night, especially on the weekends when all the younger people come out and the people that are from Mexico City, Monterrey, and Queretaro.
 
San Miguel de Allende has an abundance of single women. Many more than men so that’s good to report to the men so that they can come. Part of that is, I believe,  because the women feel comfortable here. They feel that San Miguel de Allende is very secure, and easy to navigate. It is easy to get acclimated in the community. I would guess it is probably a 5 to 1 ratio of single women to single men. This is, of course, only my estimate. Some of the single women here are retirees or artists.
 
The people who are coming to San Miguel de Allende as couples are getting younger and the demographic is also getting younger because we are seeing a lot of people that are able to work remotely who come here.
