Hi, I am Liz. I have been on the forum several years, including pre retirement during our planning phase. Now we have been retired a couple years and have lived in Guadalajara and San Miguel de Allende - our next stop is Morelia. I have temp residency, currently on my three year renewal, and my husband has perm. I studied Spanish in immersion (3 to 4 hours daily)for 6 months across two years and also use Duolingo and other programs. I am functional/decent in Spanish, but it was one of the hardest things I have done and included a good hour a day of self-study also. I particularly like using the Warren Hardy workbooks to study. Our plan is to travel Mexico, South America, and Europe for the next 6-8 years, being in the US for only 1 to 2 months annually so we sold our home and most of our stuff. It has been great. I have learned from this group and try to give back by sharing my experiences. It's great knowing you all.

Hello, I'm Jim. I've been working in MX for about 2 weeks/month for a few years now, mostly San Luis Potosi and Puebla. I am nearing retirement age, so I have been using this forum to learn about options in MX, and it's been a great resource. I have been to many cities in Mexico to check out for retirement possibilities (Oaxaca, Zacatlan, Playa Del Carmen are my favorites so far). I can speak Spanish pretty well, had a great teacher in the Puebla area that I would highly recommend. So far, my experience on this forum has been good, as have my experiences in MX. I look forward to learning more, as I do plan to retire or partially retire in MX.

I have worked and lived in many countries abroad for many years. I worked in Merida from 1978-1982, then returned after I retired 1n 2017. I hold a Permanent Resident Visa and speak Spanish. I moved to Guanajuato several weeks ago, and plan on living here for the foreseeable future. Enjoy many genres of music and hiking. Look forward to meeting and making friends in Guanajuato.

Hi everyone, im Adam. I lived a few years in various countries in S America. I've wanted to move to Mexico but until now I had not the time to make it down there. Im now in Texas and im hoping to connect with some expats down living there.. Id love to live in the mountains, growing awesomely healthy food and animals on a quaint farm. If anyone knows of a small farm to rent or buy, I'd be delighted to hear from you. Id prefer traveling in MX with a group, but if I have to do it alone just to get to a beautiful place I'd do it. Hope everyone is well down there!
