Retiring and Long Stays - Visit Mexico
http://www.visitmexicopress.com/backgro ... sp?bgID=10

Mexico is home to about 700,000 U.S. and Canadian citizens who have decided to exchange hectic cities, frigid temperatures and high living costs for a more relaxed, warmer and inexpensive lifestyle. Some live in Mexico year-round, while many others come to Mexico to escape the harsh winters back home.

Common destinations include the colonial city of Guadalajara or along the nearby Lake Chapala; the beach towns of Acapulco, Colima, Cuernavaca, La Paz, Mazatlan, Manzanillo and Puerto Vallarta; and the colonial cities of Guanajuato, Merida, Morelia, Oaxaca, Puebla, Queretaro and San Miguel de Allende.

Immigration out-paces British exodus - Telegraph

Immigration out-paces British exodus - Telegraph
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jh ... emi116.xml
Britain is experiencing unprecedented levels of immigration with more than half a million foreigners arriving to live here in a single year, new figures show. Last year, 510,000 foreign migrants came to the UK to stay for at least 12 months, according to the Office for National Statistics. At the same time 400,000 people, more than half of whom were British, emigrated.

An exodus on this scale - amounting to one British citizen leaving the country every three minutes - has not been seen in the UK for almost 50 years.
