I am a certified TESOL teacher (native English speaker - US), and am planning to retire from my Oriental Medicine practice by the end of the year. I am looking for a part time position for teaching English in business organizations and health care facilities. Any suggestions for the best place for this, considering I want to live in Mexico in a safe area?

You will have to apply to potential employers, who must be approved by INM to employ foreigners. With the firm offer of employment, you may apply at your nearest Mexican consulate for a residence visa, then finish the visa process in Mexico with INM.
Otherwise, you will need to provide proofs of financial independence to the Mexican consulate, apply for a visa, finish the process in Mexico, then seek work from an approved emplloyer, etc. It will take a lot of time.
Toiurist are limited to 180 days and are prohibited from working.

Queretaro? There is a small +/-50 expat group here, one of whom has taught English for 6 years at JFK school. Why not reach out to bilingual schools in the area you would like to live in? Mexico is very safe, except perhaps for certain areas where carteles are well established. Good luck!

"I am looking for a part time position for teaching English in business organizations and health care facilities."
- This is not a realistic expectation. First, businesses that want English teachers are usually located in industrial areas that are many km from where you would prefer to live. In my experience the pay isn't great and the jobs are uncertain. Health care facilities? Even less likely. I was asked to do this one time and discovered that the nurses had neither the desire nor the aptitude to learn English.
Your best bet would be to get a job at a language school that teaches English. Realistically you could get about 15 hours/week at 200 pesos/hour. You would have to supplement it with private tuition (about 300-400 pesos/hour).
Regarding "safe" as long as you don't want to live in dangerous states such as Tamaulipas, Sinaloa, or Michoacan, you're not likely to be bothered.

Hello:

It would appear that after speaking to quite a few people that the Merida area (which is also the capital of the Quintin Roo part) is the safest part of Mexico and not far from Cancun and all the major resorts! I hope this helps!

Merida is the capital of the state of Yucatan. Chetumal is the capital of Quitana Roo.

Mérida is indeed the safest part of Mexico, though there are states that have been mentioned (such as SInaloa and Michoacan) where the dangers are localized and not ubiquitous. But we are not THAT close to Cancún, which is four hours away by car, and the resorts are even further. But be aware that it is very hot and humid here almost year-round. Some of us like that, but for many people it would be a deal breaker!
