MEXICO EXPAT LIFE AND TRAVEL (PLUS LIVING ABROAD)

Category

These posts provide information about expat retiree life in Mexico (and worldwide). They also provide tips for learning Spanish (And other foreign languages), understanding culture shock, and successfully adapting to Mexican (and other) cultures.

Even though living in the Yucatan can be frustrating at times, I am glad I settled here after traveling around the world for 8 years. I love the rich culture,, relaxed yet respectful people, and the fascinating history, food, and culture.. I know you will too, especially if you take a bit of time to get to kno0w more about the region through the Yucatecan Culture Workshop. (I also recommend that you consider taking our longer and more intensive Living and Traveling in Mexico culture, too).

As part of my research for my blogs and seminars over the past 15 years, I have talked to over 300 American and Canadian expats in Mexico, Central America (particularly Costa Rica), Europe (mainly Italy), and Thailand. These expats generally are happy they made the move but found both the challenges and the benefits of living abroad vastly different than expected.
