What do I need to know about living in Monterrey?

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

"It is important for expats looking to retire in Monterrey to understand the city's climate. Monterrey has a semi-arid climate that brings low humidity, lots of sunshine, and warm temperatures all year round. Expats should also research the cost of living in Monterrey, and be aware that it can be higher than in other Mexican cities and towns. Additionally, researching the healthcare system and having insurance to cover any expenses is important for expats. Knowing Spanish is not essential for life in Monterrey, but speaking some Spanish can be beneficial for completing everyday tasks. Lastly, investing in a reputable real estate agent is recommended when looking for accommodations in Monterrey," commented one expat who made the move to Monterrey.
