LIZARRAGA MORALES, Omár. La inmigración de jubilados estadounidenses en México y sus prácticas transnacionales: Estudio de caso en Mazatlán, Sinaloa y Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur. Migr. desarro [online]. 2008, n.11, pp. 97-117. ISSN 1870-7599.
This article analyses the migration of U.S. retirees to Mexico, specifically the northwestern localities of Mazatlán, Sinaloa and Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur. This migration goes in the opposite direction of the Mexico-U.S. flow traditionally addressed in international migration studies. It is also a fast growing occurrence, as the immigrants tend to be retired baby boomers. Their social structures and some of their transnational practices are described, along with the social and economic impact they have on the receiving communities.
