Updated Guide to Living in Mexico

A year ago my story An Insider’s Guide to Moving, Living, and Working in Mexico won Transitions Abroad’s Expatriate Writing Contest. Thanks again Transitions Abroad!

I have updated the story (July 2017). It’s now twice as long, with many more details about what it takes to live in Mexico, including:

  • Immigration requirements
  • Getting a job
  • Getting an apartment
  • Hooking up internet
  • Using cell phones
  • Medical care
  • Banking
  • Driving
  • Safety
  • Food and drinks
  • Dealing with authorities
  • Traveling around Mexico
  • Learning Spanish
