A reader commented on the Expat Report Culture Shock in Guadalajara, Mexico
Culture-Shock-in-Guadalajara
Do you have any advice or thoughts about culture shock you would like to share?
Try it out for a few months before you move here. It's not for everyone. It beats cold, Wisconsin winters, but the culture is both baffling, lovely, surprising and shocking. I can't believe I've made it here a year. I must be stronger than I thought. You can feel very alone and isolated, or you can feel surrounded by many. I guess it's a choice. I've done both. But take care and don't bring expensive things that you'd hate to see stolen. I have been very lucky (blessed) but many I know personally have gotten attacked or robbed. TAKE CARE and use common sense. (Continue)

For friendliness, try Puerto Vallarta. For beauty and lots of students wanting to learn English (I presume that's what you're teaching), try Guanajuato, Oaxaca or Xalapa (though there are plenty of opportunities to teach English in Vallarta as well).
