A Guide To Living in Mexico  For Digital Nomads and Expats

Mexico is a country with a unique blend of cultures that have been influenced by both indigenous and European settlers. You can find people from all over the world living here, making it an attractive option for digital nomads and expats alike. The following guide will provide you with information about finding accommodation in Mexico and everything else you need to know before moving there.

The Mexican Culture

If you’re moving to Mexico, you’ll want to know what you’re getting into. The Mexican culture is very different from other cultures, so it’s important that you understand some of the basics before making your move. This section will provide an overview of what it’s like being part of the Mexican community in general and how people interact with each other based on their culture.

Mexico is a beautiful country with lots of things to offer its residents and visitors alike. First off, they have amazing beaches along the Pacific Ocean (for those who love surfing) as well as incredible mountains on their east coast (for those who love hiking).

Their cuisine is also extremely diverse; tacos are just one example of this diversity because there are dozens more traditional dishes available for anyone who wants them!

Finally, the weather is pretty nice for most parts during most months out year round except when tourists flood during December holidays when temperatures soar up into triple digits Fahrenheit (-18 Celsius) outside during daytime hours only dropping down slightly at night time hours but still remaining quite warm overall even though nights here tend not to be quite as muggy hot compared with days which means less humidity hence less sweatiness if travelling in winter months (November through March).

Pre-Arrival Preparation

Before you embark on your journey to Mexico, it is important that you take care of all the necessary preparations. You have to make sure you have a valid passport and that it is not going to expire within the next six months (or whatever the time limit is for your citizenship).

If you are planning on staying in Mexico for over 180 days, make sure that you apply for a visa before leaving. You can apply at most Mexican Consulates online or even on arrival at the airport if necessary. If applicable, purchase medical insurance that covers emergencies while abroad and buy travel insurance as well.

You can purchase return tickets or have set up plans for where else in Latin America or elsewhere around Asia/Africa/Europe/North America etc., so as not to be stuck without any money left when trying to go back home again (which could cause some problems).

Finding Accommodations In Mexico

When it comes to finding accommodations in Mexico, there are a lot of options. The first thing you’ll need to do when looking for housing is decided what type of place would best suit your needs. Do you want something private or shared? Also, you have to think about where is the safest place to live in Mexico.

If you’re looking for a rental property, then there are many different sites online where people can post their properties for rent. You can also check local newspapers for classified ads related to rentals. If this is something that interests you, be sure that the person renting out the space has good references and/or reviews from past tenants so they can prove they’re trustworthy and reliable.

If being surrounded by other people isn’t something that interests you (and I know some digital nomads who prefer this kind), then condos or apartments might be right up your alley! There are many websites like Craigslist where people list their homes as rentals—just make sure they’re legitimate before committing yourself!

Transport and Getting Around in Mexico

Mexico’s public transport system is extensive, with multiple options for getting around the country. The most common types of public transport are buses, trains and colectivos (shared taxis). You can get a bus ticket in advance or just wait for one to come along at your stop. Buses run frequently and will take you anywhere you want to go within Mexico; the only downside is that they’re not always on time because of traffic jams. If you’re going long distances then train travel may be faster but it’ll cost more than taking a bus—and these days it’s also slower thanks to all the roadworks going on across the country! If possible, try to avoid flying domestically unless there’s some kind of emergency as flights are often delayed due to weather conditions and other factors beyond their control.

Food & Drink in Mexico

The food in Mexico is delicious and diverse. There are many different regions of Mexico, each with its own unique cuisine. The food in the Yucatan Peninsula, for example, often contains flavours from Africa and Asia (due to the historical influx of Chinese and Arab immigrants). The most popular Mexican dishes include tacos al pastor, enchiladas, pozole soup, and chilaquiles.


Mexico can be a great place to live, work and travel for digital nomads and expats. The cost of living is low compared to other countries in the region, but it’s not all about saving money. There are many beautiful places to explore and interesting people to meet along the way.
