We are a family of six wanting to move to Mexico. Any advice at all would be helpful. Thank you.

Wow! There's a wide open question.
OK, I'll assume that you are retired and have sufficient income to meet the visa requirements. Otherwise, you will have to be wealthy enough to prove to Immigration that you can support yourselves to the tune of about $1200 USD per person per month from sources outside of Mexico. You will have to prove that again every year.
If none of the above applies to you, Mexican Citizenship allows you to move to Mexico freely. Are you citizens? If not, you can't work in Mexico without the permission of the government, INM (Immigration), and that is not easy to obtain. If children are involved, private schools are very expensive. Universities can be an option for the very top students who can pass the entrance examinations.
Actually, you would need to tell us a lot more about yourselves, in order to obtain any guidance.

Thank you for replying. Yes we have the funds to support ourselves. We just are not sure where exactly to start this move. I have seen alot of websites and seen even more conflicting info about how to begin. Thanks again.

Have you spent time in Mexico; other than a coastal resort area in the winter? If not, an extended visit would be in order, targeting various parts of Mexico twice; once in summer and once in winter. It would be wise to rent for a month on each visit to help you to get a feel for a reasonably normal living experience. Then, you may have an idea of where you might like to live permanently; Large colonial city, smaller town or village, etc. You will also experience the availability, or lack of things you just can't live without and learn how to find them or to forget them. Everyone does some of both.
Before you do any of that, keep reading these forums and any recent, up to date literature on living in Mexico. Use a map of Mexico and Google to explore various areas before you visit them. Most people are pleasantly surprised at Mexico today.
