Best place in Mexico for an american to move to?

My wife wants to live in another country for a year or so. I thought Mexico would be nice because it is inexpensive. I have a 18 month child and would need high speed thats it.


A bunch of americans living there was probably be a bad point instead of a good point. I want to live in Mexico to experience the culture not be around americans.

Update 2:

I love belize but it is too expensive, we are actually considering Guatemala in the city antigue.

    Puerto Peñasco, aka Rocky Point, in Sonora. It's very close to the border in case you miss the U.S... you know... Wal-Mart and stuff.

    Great question!

    Why only Mexico? It's a beautiful country but, in many parts, becoming more unstable every month.

    You may also want to consider Panama, Costa Rica & Chile. They tend to be much more stable countries (for the past 18 years.)

    Plan to rent a home for 6 - 12 months... by then you'll know if you love it or hate it!

    Note, in many countries, you will not be able to find work (legally) so, if possible, plan to have your own business. You will also need to research the laws of the country regarding your own business. They can differ significantly and may require that you deposit $10K - 60K in a local bank. For example, I believe Costa Rica now requires $60K to be deposited for self-employed Americans & Canadians... depending on how their money is earned, ie, brick and mortar business or web based.

    Best wishes!
