Yes, it is much better than we imagined! And I'm still amazed by the mountain views every time I go outside. - Feb 2021

Yes - Aug 2015

ABSO-freaking-LUTELY. - Mar 2014

Yes! I am having a great time. - Oct 2012

At this point in time, no. Once the security situation is better, yes. - Oct 2010

Probably. It was a good transition into the foreign service life for our kids. Not much of a culture shock as many things are Americanized. The rise in crime would make me think twice. I don't like that I cant roll down my windows without worrying I'll be carjacked. - Jul 2010

This wasn't our first choice. We considered it much too nice of a city. (Strange but true.) - Jan 2008

I wouldn't choose it, but its not bad. It is very easy to live here and the opportunity to travel around Mexico has been great but I would prefer Mexico City. - Jan 2008
