Move the family to Baja

Post New Topic

My husband is from Morelos and he and I are both chefs so it’s a skill that can be taken anywhere there is tourism. We’ve got two young school aged children. I’ve lived near the ocean all of my life so I can’t imagine being landlocked. Being said I wanted to see if there are other expats families living in Baja since it’s a short trip back to visit family in the states. What has it been like and how have you gotten the family to adjust to new surroundings?

It is exactly like moving anywhere else in the world, but just more like southern California, which is what keeps some folks away. :)
First, you learn where things are, how to speak the local language, what government documents you need, like RFC, CURP, etc., and if you can use your US venicle, or need to buy a Mexican replacement, business permits and licenses, and how much you may have to pay for 'protection' for your business, etc. It will be more expensive than 'mainland Mexico in most places, due to tourism.
If you haven't explored, do that before even considering a move.
