Mexico City for living there.

Postby falcon garson » September 21st, 2015, 9:59 am

Guys, Let me know how is Mexico City to live there? My uncle wants to move there for three years. He has no idea about its rental apartments and weather conditions.
So, Can you brief about what he should be careful?

Never been. The weather's great, smog is bad, as is crime. Apparently you can mostly avoid the crime by being very careful where you go. Last I knew, it was the world's biggest city, so you're going to find a lot of everything.

gsjackson, I have noted your points and will deliver it to my uncle. But I think it's not enough to take a final decision. So, guys I am looking for more suggestions and tips from your side and so sure there will be other guys who like to brief me like gsjackson.

Greetings. I've made many trips to Mexico City. The first trip was to see Teotihuacan and other key landmarks. Bogota is great for the women. But really the only city I've ever fell in love with is Mexico City. Should you move to Mexico City? If you can make money and live in Mexico City I would say yes. If I could make the bacon I probably would have moved to DF myself. The culture and quality of life is there.

You also need to know the city and where to go/stay. I can't imagine the north or east of the city being very fun. But La Condesa and Polanco. Oh yea, it's a great place. Rent wont be cheap..

I can tell you though I am from Guadalajara, I have lived in DF for two years.

*Good things:

*Lots of things to do here.
*Many fashion clothing stores
*Accessible public transportation
*Food is very yummy
*Good looking girls (only in upper class and middle class districts. In Guadalajara, I find much better looking women even in the poorest districts) and good looking street prostitutes (for those who do not want non-committed relationships and usually in Condesa or similar areas).
*Rents are affordable.
*Healthy food MUCH cheaper than in the US

Bad things:

*Smog (I am considering to move to my native Guadalajara or Bajio region as smog there is very little to none)
*Chilangos are freeloaders and take advantage of others.
*Low quality medical public service
*People are not sraightforward and have a sheepish,submissive herd mentality (very opposite of my mentality).
*Salaries are low (for the average Mexican that is).
