What do I need to know about living in Leon?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Leon, they said:

"Thinking of moving to Leon ? Know it is a hot city (between 9h30 and 4h00 the sun is burnin ) so air-condition ed room is a must or take refuge in the shades of trees in parks. Small hotel rooms are cheap (8 to 15 dollars a day) but standard is very basic : no hot water, no bathroom tub, ceiling fan but no air conditioning. Service is slow and be prepared to be patient. English is rarely heard except from tourists and North American residents," commented one expat who made the move to Leon .
