I've not used the program, but I've seen their website and the product looks very slick and well produced. It also carries a pretty hefty price tag for all 5 levels.
Just remember that all language programs are basically just an introduction to the language. There is no product on the market that will take you to a level that I would call "fluent". For that to happen I would recommend that when you move to Mexico, subscribe to a Mexican television provider, start reading native materials at an appropriate level, listen to music that you like in Spanish, and most of all, get out there and interact with the locals.
I would check with your local library and see if you can check out the Pimsleur Spanish I, II, and III. If you master all three levels of Pimsleur, that would be an adequate foundation to be able to start with some very basic native materials, and from there it is just a matter of exposure.
