Comments Print

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?


Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.


1. Lots of foods that i cant find here (ie pudding mixes, creamed corn, reeses, brown sugar, cheezits, sunflower seeds)

2.my shades of makeup (i'm very pale, and i have been unable to find my color of foundation anywhere here.)

What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?

In my opinion, the best zone to live in (in regards to safety) is San Javier. I have also lived in Real de la Plata, and found it was a pretty quiet neighborhood as well.

What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

i live in a small house (2 bedrooms, 1 bath) in a quiet neighborhood. it's not a gated neighborhood, but there are security guards that stay 24/7. i actually dont know any other expats, but i've seen a few that live in San Javier (the colonia where i live).

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

i found the house im renting in the newspaper

Are your housing costs higher or lower than they were in your home country? What is the average cost of housing there?

i pay 2500 pesos monthly for my house (roughly $230 US), and my water bill is about 5 dollars a month. I pay light every two months and its about 5 dollars as well. i really odnt know the average housing cost here, but, at least for me, its much cheaper than the US.
