LIZARRAGA MORALES, Omar. Seeking the Endless Summer. Push and Pull Factors in the Pleasant Transmigration Process in Spain and Mexico. Migr. Inter [online]. 2019, vol.10, e2187.  Epub Jan 01, 2019. ISSN 2594-0279.

This paper describes and analyzes the stages of the process of what is known in Spanish as Transmigración Placentera. The description of the phenomenon, we do it since the “Push- Pull” theoretical approach, which posits that human mobility responds to rational valuations by comparing elements in the place of origin and destination. In particular, we focus on describing and comparing the mobility of UK citizens who migrate to El Campello, Spain, and US citizens moving to Mazatlan, Mexico.

Keywords : North-South mobility; Transnationality; Retirement migration; Mazatlán; El Campello.
