What do I need to know about living in Guadalajara?

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

"Before retiring in Guadalajara, expats should know that the cost of living is affordable compared to other areas of Mexico and the United States, although the city itself is consistently ranked as one of the most expensive in the country. The climate is desirable throughout the year and provides plenty of outdoor activities. Additionally, a visa is generally necessary for expats looking to stay in the area for a period of time, so they should make sure to check the immigration laws and rights prior to their move. Finally, the city offers plenty of cultural activities, including music festivals and culinary experiences, so there is always something new to discover," commented one expat who made the move to Guadalajara.
