Hey there!! Oklahoma native here. I have spent the last 5 months on extended stay in Monterrey, N.L., Mexico due to having many native friends prior to visiting. After doing a lot of serious thinking, I would like to try my hand at living in the wonderful city that is Mty. I love every little thing about this city and it has become my home and has a piece of my heart! I was hoping to hear from any expats, especially U.S. natives, about their stories and any tips and advice that could be helpful. What all do I need? How has your experience been? Thank you!

I posted before, there are too many events to list & explore here but to get ur questions answered, go to YouTube & query “Tangerine Traveler’s”, a young couple & dog Laska covering major cities in Mexico, lodging, rent, food, traffic, experiences, traveling, places to dine, customs, climate, etc. Good Luck!

We have lived in Monterrey for over 20 years. It's a fine city with every facility that you could expect from a major metropolis. You probably know the city quite well by now, but have you explored the area immediately to the south, eg, "Pueblo Magico" Santiago?

I only visited there very briefly. I did get to visit the city of Sayulita, another Pueblo Magico, in the state of Nayarit. It was also very gorgeous!

Monterrey is by far my favorite place. I am enamored.

If you wish to live in Mexico, Elizabeth, you will need to apply for a residence visa (temporary or permanent) at a Mexican Consulate. There are financial requirements to prove. Check with the nearest consulate's online site for details and an appointment. Otherwise, you will have to go as a tourist and leave every 180 days, hoping to be re-admitted.

RV Gringo, is 100% correct. Goggle close MX embassy. Go see them and what requirements are. Each area is a tiny bit different. Decide the area u r interested in and meet with embassy and requirements for that particular state. We are retired, if u r much easier. Everything starts with local embassy. Good luck.
