What do I need to know about living in Morelia?

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

"Expats considering retirement in Morelia, should be aware of several key factors. Firstly, it's important to understand that while the cost of living is generally lower than in many Western countries, the quality of life can vary greatly depending on your lifestyle and budget. Morelia is a city rich in history and culture, with a vibrant arts scene and numerous festivals throughout the year. However, it's also a city with a significant amount of poverty, and crime can be an issue, particularly in certain areas. Healthcare in Morelia is generally good, with several high-quality hospitals and clinics. However, it's recommended that expats have comprehensive health insurance, as public healthcare can be limited and private healthcare can be expensive. The climate in Morelia is mild, with warm summers and cool winters. However, it can be quite rainy during the rainy season, which runs from June to October. Spanish is the official language in Morelia, and while some locals speak English, it's highly recommended that expats learn at least basic Spanish to help with day-to-day life. The process of buying property in Mexico can be complex, and it's recommended that expats seek legal advice before doing so. Renting is a popular option for many expats, and rental prices can be quite affordable. Finally, it's important to understand that while Morelia offers many conveniences of modern life, it's also a city with a slower pace of life. This can be a major adjustment for some expats, particularly those used to a fast-paced lifestyle," wrote a member in Morelia.
