hi, I read all your hopes about going to Mexico. I lived in Acapulco for 8 years . it is hard . prices hi, food, clothing and medical. there are not enough jobs , unless you are being transferred there with a job . it will be hard . people are working 12 hours for 10 dollars . and rent is hi. if you own a house it would be a lilt easier . and there is immigration . it cast like 150 a year just to stay legal there . 2-3 thousand is nothing and will be gone in just a month or so . the light company is getting very high too . good luck ! I have been back in the states for 2 years now! I rather be back in Mexico , but I have saved 10,Voodo dollars and have a small rectal business and I own my own house there . I am still worried I will not be able to make it with the growing costs...save as much as you can , try to buy some kind of land and build on it ...that is the smart way . please do not go broke . it will be hard on you and baby .
I can answer questions about cultural differences between the U.S. and Mexico, teaching EFL, taxis, buses, cost of living, foods, water, paying bills, being pregnant and delivering your baby in Mexico, finding doctors, health care, and travel in central Mexico especially Morelos.
I can't answer questions about purchasing real estate in Mexico.
