What do I need to know about living in Guanajuato?

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

"1. Guanajuato is a very vibrant, welcoming city for expats who want to retire. 2. It is important to investigate whether you will need retirement visa to live there. 3. Cost of living can be quite low compared to most places in North America. 4. Guanajuato is served by a couple of international airports and is easy to get to for holiday visits. 5. Healthcare and health insurance options should be researched when considering retirement in Guanajuato. 6. Learning the language - Spanish - can be a major help, but expats can get by without it in many areas. 7.
