My husband and I will be visiting Tequis and Queretaro in a few months with an eye toward a possible move. We currently live in Arizona. For those who have made such a move I would like some advice on banking, mail (did you retain a US address?). We do not plan to have a car and are learning Spanish now to ease the transition. I am a writer and my husband will be newly retired. We are both interested in volunteering. and the arts. Any information on these topics or interesting things to check out in the area are appreciated. Many thanks!

Haven’t been in Tequisquiapan for like 20 years, can’t buy. What’s the rental market like? Thanks.

Rentals are difficult to find for less than one year time period and unless you are looking between seasons (usually changing hands in Jan-March)
Just checked a few websites of local realtors and see a few still available...However...word of caution...anything posted on the Internet that you inquire about after a weekend will probably already be rented. Tequis is a hotspot for folks vacationing from DF and Qro City and realtors notoriously poor at keeping web listings current.
PM me if you want links to local realtors that do not come up with a Google search...

Extremely difficult to near impossible if trying to rent for less than one year. Web postings are also notoriously out of date.
PM if you want direct emails to local realtors if you are looking for long term rental. Otherwise, research hotels, Airbnb, etc.

Hullothere,
As an old hand at living in Mexico - I have been here about 25 years - I can maybe give you advice on many things. I am now living in the country in the Patzcuaro area, but have built in Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo, and here in San Pedro Pareo. Have lived in Comala, Colima and in Ajijic, so know the ropes fairly well. Have simplified my life to the barest and am dedicating my time to organizing free sterilization clinics for pets. I also receive guests with Airbnb, but for you, I would enjoy a visit. Let me know if you would like to spend a few days in nature and get to know the Patzcuaro area. My tel. is 434 - 5621045.

Hullo Khizer,
Thanks for your message. I agree, Puebla is a lovely city and pleased you are liking it. Are you South Africans? You have a US telephone number. The clinics are massive, operating a few hundred animals at a time, so not only me - many volunteers. This time we have mostly college students helping out, so a good learning experience for them. Now is the best time to visit Patzcuaro, just before the rainy season, so why don't you come?
Regards
Lucille
