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

"Expat retirees considering Tequisquiapan should ensure they have a valid visa for Mexico. This can be handled through a Mexican Consulate located in their home country. Additionally, expats should ensure they have the correct vaccinations for Mexico before entering the country. Expats should make sure they have adequate health insurance coverage in Mexico, invest in adequate traveler's insurance, and research their legal rights as an expat living in Mexico. Expats should also research the local customs and culture of the area to gain a better understanding of the community they will be joining. It is important to research the quality of local healthcare and to familiarize oneself with any local healthcare providers in the area. Lastly, expats should carefully consider the cost of living in Tequisquiapan in order to ensure their expenses can be covered," remarked one expat living in Tequisquiapan, Mexico.

"I have a 3 bedroom, 3 bath in a nice gated community. Very safe and quiet well except for the fireworks!!! Be prepared for 2 weeks in September. The weeks from Sept 6 to Sept 20th, Magdelena has a Saints Festival with almost nonstop fireworks,fiestas, parades and music. Then it goes into the week of Sept 16 fireworks, fiestas and music!! In December we have the posadas. The rest of the time it is quiet. We have marvelous hot air balloons, or on the ground tours of all the marvelous wineries," wrote one member in Tequisquiapan.
