Post #5 of 11
I've been using your option #1 for 13 years now (US Post Office instead of Canada Post, though) and find it to be by far the best option. Not only is it the least expensive, I have never had to wait for my mail more than a month, but usually only 2 weeks or less. I really do get my U.S. forwarded mail faster than most of the folks I know who use Mailbox, Etc. (Ship@Post here in Mazatlán).
If you go with your option #1, the MOST important thing for speeding delivery in México is to be certain the person forwarding the mail writes your Mexican address PROPERLY, i.e., Mexican style. I wrote quite a long post on this here on MexConnect a couple of years ago. Here is where you will find it.
One note about that post and the discussion thread: The post by sanjuan near the bottom of the thread concerning placement of the C.P. in your Mexican address is flatly WRONG. It is definitely NOT done the way he says, at least in México.
Good luck and bienvenidos a México
