If you are U.S. citizen living in Leon you should call the consulate in Guadalajara at (333) 268-2173 or schedule an appointment on line at their web site.They schedule application interviews for passport renewals on normal business days, Monday through Friday from 8:00AM to 11:30AM and you must go there in person with a pre-set appointment time. A fine excuse to spend the previous night in Guadalajara. The consulate is located in a fun district near centro. Lots of great hotels nearby.
For U.S. citizens living elsewhere in Mexico, consult the web site listing consulates general in Mexico that offer passport issuance and renewal services. For instance, we are living in Chiapas at the moment and would deal with the Merida Consulate the process of which would entail driving over there - a long way but doable with a combined short hop over to the Caribbean at Puerto Morelos. I guess I´ve been retired in Mexico too long and, as Monte Python suggested in Life of Brian, "Always Look at The Bright Side of Life." If I lived in parts of Chihuahua state, my consulate could be in Ciudad Juarez or did they close that in a hail of bullets?
If you are not a U.S. citizen you´re on your own.
