Jalisco Real Estate
Jalisco, the state in which Puerto Vallarta is located, is the 6th largest in size in Mexico. This vast area includes a wide variety of climate conditions and different types of terrain such as beaches, high desert and agricultural areas as well as colonial villages and modern cities. Foreigners have been coming to Jalisco for decades as it has one of the most temperate climates in the Northern Hemisphere.
Jalisco has a low cost of living when compared with other areas of Mexico, the United States and Canada. It is the birthplace of tequila and many Mexican cultural iconic symbols such as the sombrero.
The state of Jalisco is well-known for its Mariachis and the traditional music they represent. Economically, it is ranked third in Mexico with most of its industry located in Guadalajara, the country’s second-largest city. Jalisco has several indigenous cultures including the Huichol and the Nahua – some of the last cultures to succumb to European culture and the Catholic faith. In fact, most local indigenous cultures fled to the high mountain ranges to escape the missionaries.
Today, the state of Jalisco is a vibrant pillar of Mexican culture with many business opportunities – including a strong real estate market which varies greatly depending on the region.
Jalisco real estate has something for every taste and every budget, from a small ranch home located in the Sierra Madre Mountains to a luxury beachfront villa in one of the more developed coastal villages.
Foreigners have been flocking to neighborhoods outside Guadalajara because of the lower cost of living and consistent climate.
If a beach setting is more to your liking, then Puerto Vallarta will satisfy any beach-goer’s need for sun, sand and surf. Puerto Vallarta is a coastal city with a modern international airport offering direct flights to most major US and Canadian cities.
Whether you are interested in Puerto Vallarta real estate or properties in Lake Chapala, Costa Alegre or Guadalajara, there are many interesting investment opportunities available. Real Estate in Jalisco is an ideal choice for anyone looking to retire or invest in Mexico.
