FAST FIVE: "Inverse" Migration: Why Are So Many US Citizens Moving To Mexico?

Published by on

According to data from the Ministry of Tourism (Sectur), over 10 million US citizens arrived as visitors through September this year, 24% more than in the same period of 2019.

But it is not just Americans that are opting to live in Mexico.

The food is delectable and the people by and large warm, welcoming and supportive (in Spanish we would use the word “solidario,” meaning they have solidarity with others).

There's also talk of a pax-mafiosi in the capital, an agreement between the big narcos not to fight here.

Comparing the 2021 figures, Mexico City still has a higher murder rate than New York (which had about 5.7 homicides per 100,000), but it is lower than Portland (12.9), Dallas (14.6) or Minneapolis (22.1).
