When Mexico was first mentioned around my family, they started recounting tales of bandidos and slaughtered gringos dating all the way back to Pancho Villa. Most likely, they just want to keep you nearby.

Is there a particular area in Mexico that you are considering? This forum includes people from all over Mexico who will give you the plusses (and sometimes even the minuses) of their own areas. The weather in Mexico varies widely from one place to another and is a huge factor in making a decision. since you have to live with it 24/7/360 unless you maintain a second home elsewhere.

For instance, the beaches are great, but the weather can be almost unbearably hot and humid at times. The high desert plains are beautiful and have a more temperate climate, but for some people, the altitude is a health problem. If you speak fluent Spanish, there are many options open to you that would be difficult for the non-bilingual person.

Let us know what you want, and you will probably get many responses. There is also a very good "search" function available.

By the way, one of the most valuable resources is our own Rolly at He answers many questions about moving to Mexico. All the details where devils dwell.

Welcome to an exciting adventure.
