Fiesta, mañana, music, friendliness, food, peace and tranquility... This is what life is all about in Mexico besides work and routine...

You may bring your cats and dogs to Mexico provided that you bring a health certificate and satisfy other requirements. Other pets are allowed as well, but you must contact the proper authorities for details on how to do so.

The lives of many Mexicans, young and old, revolve around the family. Children are welcome in most social situations, from big neighbourhood parties to intimate gatherings. If you move to Mexico with your children, you’ll have no problem finding activities for them. And while the Mexican education system does have its share of problems, by enrolling your children in school you’ll be providing them with a wonderful opportunity not only to learn Spanish but to make new friends.

Are you planning to move to Mexico? The most important first step is to spend some time in the country prior to making the move. Visit different regions and meet people, both Mexicans and expats. Ask how much it costs to rent houses and apartments, what the local schools are like, and if the area has any serious safety issues.

One of the best things about living in Mexico is travelling in Mexico. The country may look small on a map, but it’s a big place with a wide variety of places to visit. You have many options for travelling around the country, including by plane, bus, and car.
